You know, when I died I had all my retinue (or "posse" as it was then called) buried with me. They came willingly. Actually, they fought tooth and nail against being sacrificed, but luckily they were subdued by the loyal giant eunuchs, who were also sacrificed. The Captain of the Slaves was also sacrificed, as were all the slaves. Also sacrificed: everyone who worked in the advertising industry, which made my embalmed heart warm with eternal happiness. Those guys weren't buried with me, by the way, but in a dung heap. I made sure that each of them uttered the words "brand loyalty" and "market share" and "now with more sodium benzoate!" before the grisly rite of the "war eagle" was performed on each one. Anyway, for those of you who plan to be buried with all 800 of your retainers, make sure they've bathed first and also make very sure that none of them know the words to "Come On Eileen."
