Sleeping in caskets? That's just dead wrong.

My Grandfather actually chose his own coffin by putting on his best suit complete with a navy blue velvet bowtie. He drove to the local funeral home with two of my Aunties and chose two coffins which he proceed to lay in, much to the disbelieft of the funeral director and the "Aunts" who considered themselves true fashion divas. He instructed them to choose the coffin that would suit him best, and he laid there with appropriate dignity while the selection was made. After conferring, a decision was made, and he pre-planned his funeral on the spot. He had an incredible sense of humour. My Aunties are elderly ladies now, and they have often regaled us with the tale.

Okay, I want to know how the two intruders did $9,000 worth of damage to the two caskets. What the heck did they do in there besides sleep in them?

it's good consumerism to test out the products before buying

you definitely want a good coffin with a lot of leg room..

That reminds me of the true story of some divinity school students who were practicing how to conduct a funeral service complete with one of their fellow students playing the part of the corpse in an open casket. While they were thus working some vistiors came into the funeral home chapel and thought they were witnessing an actual service. The visitors sat respectfully in the back and listened until.... The "corpse" who had been waiting quite a while lost patience with a slow colleague. He sat up in the casket and said, "Can we get on with this? I'm hungry." At which point the visitors got the heck outta Dodge.
