    Did they bury him with a straw in his mouth and out a hole in the coffin?

    So who’s financing this waste of perfectly good beer?

    You sound cheap. I’ll bet you’d just put a can in the coffin and whisper “let us know when you finish that one”…

    Just a less dignified variant on libation.

    Quite a waste of beer if he is in a casket.

    What does FTTLHF mean? I googled it, but no definition came up.

    I am not sure if I am cheap or not, but that can thing sounds like a good idea, why waste beer on the dead? Not cheap, just practical.

    Egyptians offered beer. The Greeks and Romans offered wine. It’s a tradition with a long history. So prop me up beside the jukebox when I die.

    FTTLHF
    First to the lowest hanging fruit.
     
    It represents an easy response that has either appeared before on the forum, in a generally well known movie, commercial or TV quote, a popular expression, and/or a punchline to an old joke. Any of these would be a response that many would use, if they arrived to the page first. With many of these responses one could google the comment to locate the original usage of the phrase in the joke, movie, etc. — if he or she so desired.
     
    In case you don’t know it, here’s that joke (usually told in Irish accent):
     
    Pat and Mike had been drinking buddies and friends for years. After having a few drinks in a bar, Mike said to Pat “We have been friends for years and years and if I should die before you do would you do me a favor? Get the best bottle of Irish whiskey you can find and pour it over my grave.” Pat replied, “I would be glad to do that for you my old friend.
    …But would you mind, if I passed it through my kidneys first?”

    @Al S.

    Thanks!
    It was making me crazy, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I hope you don’t mind, but I submitted it to the Urban Dictionary.
    Thanks, again!

    We really only use it within the GoComics forum. But I suppose it could catch on.
