Is Nothing Sacred?

by Steve on August 24, 2009

Yet another reason to be cremated: the widow of the man whose remains have been peacefully resting in the vault directly above Marilyn Monroe for the last 23 years auctioned off his slot on Ebay recently netting $4.6 million.  In an unusual twist it seems old man Poncher was laid to rest face down in deference to his downstairs neighbor (or maybe he was headed downward anyhow). Widow Poncher is having him moved over one to make room for the lucky bidder.  Brings new meaning to the term “diversify your investments.”

If you doubt me maybe you’ll believe BBC.

My ashes will be scattered up in Maine or there will be a haunting.

A solution for the cloud of ash that occurs when the box/bag is opened outside.
Have the funeral home mix the ash’s with water and freeze it.
Then all that you have to do is place the block where you want it.
This will also work with a air-drop and the plane will not fill up with the dust.

$4.6 million? What the — well, not my money.

And, Jon, I don’t really think I want to be a salt lick out in the woods somewhere.

And although I have stipulated the cremation part in my will, I’m really, really, really dragging my feet about getting to that part!!
