Well, I confess, it was intentional, an overlay of risqué humor in sharp contrast to the grim intent of Stonewall Jackson's communique to his soldiers.
But I am curious what it means. I guess it means in a rough outdoorsy way with no pomp or circumstance, no wake, and no trimmings.
Speaking of that, there are a number of traffic control signs in the inlets of Mission Bay here in San Diego which threaten people who mis-behave driving their motorboats, in a similar vein. Not that they threaten doggy-style dying in toto but they do say, sternly, "No Wake". I suppose to some folks that is like going to bed without any supper. It's enough to make you throttle back, and you can see the efficacy of ity as boats approach the harbor and slow down. I am surprised how many people care that much about death rituals, but there is no accounting for what some folks have on their shaggy-baggy minds.
And speaking of that, did Toto die like a dog after the WIzard of Oz had run its course? Or did he face his death like a man? How about the Tin Woodman?
