When I Die and They Lay Me To Rest, Gonna Go to the Place That’s the Best

I try my damnedest not to think about death. I mean, I *just* turned 28, have two young and AWESOME kids and an AWESOME husband who just bought me a MacBook Pro for  my birthday - needless to say, things are alright at the moment. Geez, Debbie Downer. This is supposed to be a FUNNY website. Get on with it already. Sometimes thoughts arise and it can't be helped. I've thought about what I would want for my funeral and reception but only in small details. Pink tulips, gerbera daisies and Norman Greenbaum's Spirit in The Sky. Oh, and booze. Lots and lots of booze. One thing I have not thought about was my casket. Frig, this really is a downer. There's FUNNY, I PROMISE! Stick with me peeps. A casket should be a personal decision, since well, you're going to be in it a long time. Good thing I found this, because now I can cross that off my list too.


A wicker casket.


I want mine to come with a carpet of flowers too.

Speaking of wicker, there are NOT enough crafts of wicker on this site. We definitely need more, because without wicker life is really dull.

    Just don’t start thinking about what would happen to a rotting corpse in this very porous container.

    What Jenifer said. I imagine rotting salad through a colander.

    Alright, this has completely ruined any chance of me enjoying a picnic ever again. I wonder if it’s lined in red and white gingham?…

    Gawd…it looks like it just landed on all those poor flowers. Should be a picnic blanket spread out on the ground, not flowers!

    Would this make a flaming Viking-like funeral easier though? Or could this lead to some really scary horror movie, ala Wicker Man?
    I just hope it’s sturdy. How awful if the pallbearers pick it up and your corpsified self falls out the bottom!

    well THAT won’t let any bugs in, at all.

    That wicker casket will rot first before your dead body.

    I was going to be cremated, but now I realize I must have this. I NEED this. The thought the gasps at the funeral and of my dead body oozing out all over everything is simply too much to resist.

    ‘Cause I’m a sicko.
