30 Humorous Takes on Death

From Funny Funerals to Comical Caskets & Headstones

— July 5, 2009 — Unique
Death isn’t funny in itself, but the innovations in this slideshow use humor to lighten up a very heavy subject. For some, these creations, celebrations and products will be offensive; for others, however, a funny funeral or comical casket is exactly the way they’d like their loved ones to remember them.

Take these humorous headstones and mocking memorial plaques, for example. These are meant to be mounted at the head of one’s grave for posterity—and that’s the point. Check out these and more innovations below that make death funny.
