This word intrigues me...it's been tossed out there to make a point...but I'm not exactly sure what that point is. I've always thought dead is dead...I didn't realize that there must be degrees of dead. Kinda dead, sorta dead, half-azzed dead, stone-cold dead, graveyard dead, dead as a door nail (whatever the heck that means), brain dead(can animals be hopheads?), and dead-to-rights. What's your...dead take on it?
