Dying to Watch TV

July 12, 2013

A woman in Croatia was found dead in front of her TV, 42 years after her neighbors reported her missing. Yep, the police walked in and found her remains sitting in a recliner that was in front of her TV. There was even a teacup next to her chair.  According to the police, the only thing that seemed amiss–besides the decayed human remains of course, were the strings of cobwebs that stretched across the living room.  Asked about the bizarre circumstances one officer said, “This is what happens when you have to stay home and wait for the cable guy to show up.”

As "den mother" to the more than 100 aspiring and accomplished writers, producers, comics and authors, Cavanagh's goal is to allow creativity to flow. She is a former journalist who made an unscheduled stop into humor more than 20 years ago. Her syndicated columns helped her gain a national audience when her work landed in the pages of First Magazine and USA Today. She teaches the how-to lessons of humor and publishing at conferences and workshops throughout the country including The Philadelphia Writers' Conference and Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop. The author of four humor books, Cavanagh hopes her latest book, How to Write and Share Humor: Techniques to Tickle Funny Bones and Win Fans, will encourage writers not only to embrace their humor talents but show them off as well.

    I hope she found out Ross and Rachel got back together before she died.

    I hope the show that she was watching wasn’t a two-parter!
