How are they going to put him in the ground or will he have to be cremated?

Creepy yes but then part of me wonders why they didn't cool lights instead of the grandma's dead lights on either side of the bike!

makes me want to work at a cool funeral home........

Yea, once your dead this makes more sense than dressing your corpse up all fake and pretending everyone used to like you. That's not really how life is/was.

Count me in. I like bikes

I would like to have a motorcycle, but something more like a sport tourer (V-strom/BMW) than a crotch rocket.

I'm afraid one like is pictured would give me a stiff back...

You're welcome! Thank YOU, for showing the real tolerance of PROGRESSIVES (yeah right, who am I kidding? - LIBERALS) for other cultures than their own. Keep up the good work Hoss, you give me faith that the USA may eventually right itself.

Dang! That's inspirational! Does Hawkin's have space for my bass boat when all the beer and fast livin' catches up with me?

Kinda creeps me out. But, if you stop and think about it...why not? Only 2 things are said when you view a body laying in their casket...you either remark 'Damn, they looked good' or 'Damn.....they looked bad.' We are just not use to this...and I really don't want to walk in to the funeral home without being TOLD BEFOREHAND of an unusual choice of display requested by the deceased. So I can make my choice of whether to view the body. I'm done.

You can get killed on one of those things.

I'm going to do something similar. I am requesting to be mounted on a 20 year old vixen....

I like it. Why not personalize things? I saw a corpse once in a photo that was side positioned rather than on the back. That is the way the person chose to sleep in life. And glasses on corpses is stupid. Who in the heck SLEEPS with glasses on?

Families pay these folks exhorbant bucks anyway. Why not have a bit of creativity?

I heard a man say he wanted to be propped up in a corner, everybody file by with their goodbyes and then head for the bar and have a great time!!

Like this.

Wonder how the pall bearers handled this dude?

Probably wasn't wearing a helmet

I don't see a problem with the unusual display at a funeral. You're looking at a dead body - what's the difference how it's configured? Laid out as if they're asleep is better?
I am in agreement about the stiff back. My only personal request is that I not be buried wearing a tie. I never wear one now, so I am uncomfortable with the idea of wearing one for eternity

OK, if you follow some of the links you'll get to the pic of the guy who was propped/ standing in the corner of his mother's home for his THREE day wake! Not proper...just not proper.

If folks would do a memorial service (no body there), all this viewing business would be taken care of anyway.

All we are viewing is a shell. What's the big deal anyway?

Mzchief is right: taxidermy

Morbid.

Amen: nothing but taxidermy. The American tradition of dead shell viewing is revolting!

Once you're dead, cremate the shell, have a nice little celebration with/without alcohol (depending on the level of coolness of the crowd) and MOVE ON!

Who wants to "view" a dead person?

YM said...

lol @ 11:57, good one

Anonymous said...

10:38 - funeral homes say "viewing" brings about closing. At least folks don't sit with the corpse anymore to keep the cats away. Horrors.

Funeral homes charge WAY too much money.

THAT is revolting.

Anonymous said...

So, how much would you charge to handle a dead body?

aI would think some are easier than others...

Accident victim?

Friends?

Children?

I guess I would rather pay a lawyer to defend a DUI... put the money to good use.

not taxidermy i dont see no antlers coming out of his head

The funeral homes recommend a "viewing" so they can rape the bereaved of more money. That way they can sell you a casket with all the trimmings. If you pay a few hundred instead of thousands, you can just burn the shell, which is all the body is anyway, and have a nice little celebration service and call it good. That way you keep your money, don't have to look at a dead body and pretend that it "looks so natural" and move on.

Anonymous said...

1:56 - good points - what galls me about these funeral directors (not all) is the tender soupy "I feel so sorry for your loss" fake sympathy voice. Oh yeah, give the bereaved a tissue and hand them a big bill at the same time.

Those folks do work really hard - that's not a fun job for sure for the ones who really care about people and less about making money.

Hey Barry, you should have in your will that when you pass you want to be viewed similar to this but in all of your marathon glory crossing the finishline first, or maybe last but just crossing. So many metaphores in that spectacle people would think you were trying to say something and not just show how much you lost the month before on nutrasystem.
