I do not want a maudlin weepy gathering. Get drunk and celebrate my life with remembrances, music and laughter.

Seconded! :)

Most people seem to forget that a "wake" is supposed to be a celebration of the life of the deceased.

Tim Finnegan lived in Walkin Street,
A gentle Irishman mighty odd
He had a brogue both rich and sweet,
An' to rise in the world he carried a hod
You see he'd a sort of a tipplers way
but for the love for the liquor poor Tim was born
To help him on his way each day,
he'd a drop of the craythur every morn

Whack fol the dah now dance to yer partner
round the flure yer trotters shake
Bend an ear to the truth they tell ye,
we had lots of fun at Finnegan's Wake

I've told my brother (I expect him to survive me) to just dispose of the corpse ASAP. No need for any fuss.

"Last one pissed drunk has to pay the tab."

This is the type of wake I've got planned.

Hmmm... wait, let me think for a second. Which one do I get to play raucous fiddle at and drink whiskey?

Yeah, totally Irish.

Because "Funeral" is an anagram of "Real Fun"
