We all know funerals are for laughing and scoring partisan points:

So do your worst. Winner announced next Monday.
Rest in peace, Mrs. King. The hope that you can be reunited with Dr. King is enough to make me wish there really is a heaven.

This ones better than the Saddam Shark
(thats nearly a caption too)
"Thank you, thank you. I really appreciate y'all coming to see my eulogy. But it's getting late so I guess I really should say something about Mrs. King."
"Jees Bill, if this were your funeral, the democratic party would probably score enough points for me to win in 2008."
Take my wife....PLEASE!!!
I'm not kidding, she had knockers like this big!
"No, really, I did have sex with this woman."
"The era of big government is over there, sitting right behind me."
"Same as it ever was."
"And you may ask yourself, where is my beautiful wife?"
"I laughed harder at this funeral than I've ever laughed at any funeral before."
The "I didn't do it" kid makes a comeback with Krusty the Clown (out of makeup) standing next to him.
"As the first black president, I am especially honored to speak to you here today."
"... so then I got her big old behind in front of me and played 'wax on, wax off'."
"OK everyone calm down. This is just for show. We really don't get along this well in private."
(George whispering to Laura in the background) "Look at that wimp, he still gets the willies everytime she gets near him. Probably afraid she's gonna throw another lamp at him."
Depending on what the definition of 'is' is, Mrs King is now a 'was'.
"And I want you to know that if my wife wins in 2008, you will all be freed from the plantation"
George: "Good thinkin', honey, keepin' your knees together. That sorry SOB probably would try to look up your dress if he got half a chance."
Laura: "He's not the one I'm worried about."
