Headstones with these kinds of messages are becoming more popular, and they can be seen across different graveyards. They may be a sign of the many terminal diseases that society is dealing with these days, or they may be attributed to more people wanting to have the last laugh.
Being sick is no picnic and can include months or even years of hard times. A little laughter can go a long way in those situations, helping to preserve a person’s spirit, if not their bodies. In this case, the deceased kept themselves positive, all the way to the grave.
Revenge from the Grave
There is no bigger question in this life than what happens after we die. Countless television shows, books, and movies have been made on the subject, but no one really knows. Or do they? This person is sure that now that they have passed on, they have all the answers.
It seems to us that this person must have been excluded a lot when they were alive; maybe they were the youngest sibling in the house. They have finally gotten their chance to have their own secret, which everybody wants to know, and they are not afraid to gloat.
Call from Above
This headstone is somehow both funny, sweet and sad. It shows a slightly cartoonish representation of part of a woman, whom we assume is Kim, talking on an enormous phone. She looks pretty happy about what she’s hearing, and why wouldn’t she be, if she is talking to the son of god?
The wordplay is meant to make light of the fact that Kim has been “called” to leave this life for the afterlife. Despite the humor, there remains a feeling that Kim’s loved ones would have preferred for her to let the call go to voicemail, at least for a few more years.
Ready to Talk
This person either has a really morbid sense of humor or is pretty sure about what happens after death and is all set to get in touch. We wonder if they have taken into account how many kids will think this is creepy and intriguing and will summon them for a chat. Maybe they should have added 'for family and friends only' at the bottom.
We have to admit that a Ouija board as a headstone is pretty fitting. It will definitely become a regular attraction for visitors and add some much-needed thrills and chills for those who enjoy being scared. Skeptics, on the other hand, will at least get a good laugh out of it.
As much as we can appreciate this person's cynical sense of humor (and his obvious existential logic), we'd rather not take them up on their offer to 'prepare'.
We'd like to think this person had good intentions though, and is simply just trying to let us know that death is an inevitable and natural part of life. But still, the only thing that goes through our head when looking at this headstone is a loud and clear: "No thanks buddy!"
