An expensive gathering of family and friends to observe a corpse, state that the deceased "looks good" in his or her coffin, gossip over how the person died, and then cast lots to divide any remaining assets.

Often many of the attendees haven't had contact with the deceased in years but now believe that appearing at the funeral to show support actually matters to a dead person or the truly bereaved.
Mark: Man, if I hear one more person say that Uncle Ray "looks good" in his coffin tonight during funeral calling hours I'm gonna flip out!

Jake: I know, right?! That bone cancer ate him away and he weighed 47 lbs when he died! Makes no sense!

Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.

Funeral is the ceremony filled with real pain and fake sympathy.
