Many of us have used the phrase “I’m going to kill you” when someone made us angry, but we never actually meant it literally. It’s just a figure of speech. Apparently, when Robert Clay Allison said those words, he actually meant them.
Allison didn’t exactly lead an exemplary life. He was a notorious gunfighter who spent much of his life drinking and one time shot himself in the foot. At least his headstone puts a little smile on the face of those who read it.
Such a Drama Queen
Here is one with a dramatic flair. This person must have been making an entrance at any social gathering and had the best wardrobe with statement pieces for every occasion. Otherwise, why would their headstone have its own soundtrack?
This funny headstone is located at the Swapnool graveyard in Falmouth, Cornwall. The text on it may be very short, but it has a lot of underlying meaning. On the one hand, it’s a reminder of how abruptly life can end, and on the other, it reminds us not to take it too seriously.
Hello From the Other Side
This is one of the best headstones we’ve seen because it’s funny on both sides, and it applies to both loved ones visiting the grave and its next tenant.
Catharine and Edwards sound like a couple that most of all liked playing games and competing with each other, which would explain the sarcastic remark at the bottom.
Someone Had Other Plans
Jerry and Jeannette seem like a couple that loved living in the moment and going on adventures together. One such adventure that never got to actually happen is living a telenovela script.
We are sure, however, that once Jeannette joins her late husband, the two will have a score of other adventures to experience together.
We can’t vouch for the authenticity of the story of this man’s death, but after reading his headstone, we are convinced that he was living his life to the fullest.
One thing is for sure; the man loved women. And judging by his headstone, women loved him back. Or at least that’s what he would have us all think.
