Death be not proud... or tasteful
My Lord. The latest eBay hijinks (they're almost passÃƒÂ© at this point, no?) has James Curry auctioning off the opportunity to put a logo or message on his coffin and to program a song at the funeral. I'm not sure why anyone might be interested, but okay.
Constantine von Hoffman informs us that this isn't really all that groundbreaking:
"Collegiate Memorials of Forsyth, Ga., has been selling college-themed caskets since 2000. The caskets, available in wood or steel, bear the school colors and insignia for 46 schools across the country and 18 sororities and fraternities."von Hoffman asks the obvious next question:
"given the ridiculously high cost of funerals how long until some for-profit-companies start underwriting the expenses?... I can see a NASCAR fanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s coffin covered in the logos of his favorite driver and the companies that supported him. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s such a natural fit for Harley owners I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe that someone isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t already selling coffins big enough for both rider and ride to be buried in."(CMO Blogs)
