Define "fatal"

Mr. Reaper: "Sorry I had to cancel last month. My mom had a fatal heart attack."

Dr. Grumpy: "I'm sorry."

Mr. Reaper: "It's okay. She's better now, and just started cardiac rehab."

"I got better."

Perhaps her cardiologist was Dr. Frankenstein.

That's me said...

Proof that CPR works? "I was dead for 2 minutes, but they managed to bring me back."

"Her heart attack wasn't fatal to her, but the pedestrian in the crosswalk wasn't so lucky."

There's health care after you die? That's a pretty sweet deal.

In fact, you'd be amazed at how many people are made better by fatal heart attacks.

Over the next few generations this subspecies of Homo Sap. will gradually loose the ability to communicate with other humans. Eventually their language will devolve to the level of pointing and grunting. Initial symptoms include misuse of common words such as 'literally' and 'fatal' and the introduction of non-words such as 'irregardless'.

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

I asked a man a routine question when he dropped off a routine prescription for his wife: is she allergic to any medications? Penicillin? Okay, what was her reaction to penicillin? *cue dramatic music, emphatic response* "She...DIED!!" Okay, what actually happened? If she's dead, she doesn't need this prescription for percocet.

Sounds like an episode of Dead Like Me.

Or Pushing Daisies.
