A weird thought about buying a headstone…
I was just thinking today about headstones and was wondering whether anyone would actually purchase themselves one before they died? I saw the Simpsons episode last night where Patty and Selma had bought one for Homer and were using it as a makeshift coffee table until he died and for some reason started thinking about whether anyone would actually do this?
I can’t really imagine that having a headstone in your living room would be much fun (or would make your guests feel welcome), but I can see why people would do it – you get to have whatever you want written on the plaque, you don’t feel like you’re being a burden to others, etc etc.
What do you think?Posted 5 years agoprojectMember
A freind of mine asked me to make her a coffin, in front of her kids, they just looked shocked,she said she was going to keep it in the attic till required and use it to store stuff in.
Makes perfect sence, they also make good bookcases, so absolutely nothing wrong with a headstone, justy dont enter a date for the death though.Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
A friend (who I have sadly fell out of touch with), and I agreed that should the other die first, the remaining individual would have to get drunk, go to the graveyard and carve, ‘better to burn out than to fade away’ into whatever headstone was erected.
The stuff you think of when you’re teenagers.
Obviously now I’m a grown up my feelings are far more mature.
(You’ll have already read this if you get the outcast)
If I die, I would like to be stuffed full of sweets and hung from a tree while a group of children are given large sticks with barbed wire wrapped round the end. Pinata!!!
“Look mummy, I hit him right up the crack!”
Once my skin has been split and I have dispensed my final load I’d recommend my rotting body is either thrown in a skip or dried out and used to provide fuel to old people who can’t afford to heat their homes.Posted 5 years agosamuriMember
I remember one lad on the internet came up with a much better idea than me. When he died he wanted a large robot to be inserted in his body so he could walk down the road to his own grave. He would wave at people while he was doing so. Once he got to the grave he would climb into the box, pull the lid on and shout to the grave diggers to ‘lower me in guys’.
If they banged the box while it was being lowered the robot would shout ‘hey, watch it! Where did you go to grave diggers school?’
I wish I’d had that idea.Posted 5 years ago
