It is not a bad idea to take stock before the end of your life. This person clearly spent some time looking back and wasn’t afraid to admit that they had made some mistakes along the way. This joke isn’t just funny; it’s also relatable. We all make mistakes, and we all end up in the hole, pun certainly intended.
You have to also give them extra points for not just excelling with their financial wordplay but also literally having the headstone flush with the ground, making the entire sentence exist inside a hole.
This couple didn’t want a lot out of their afterlife, they just wanted a place to park. Apparently, Georgetown, where they lived, was plagued by parking problems, and this couple was sick of it. That is definitely something other city dwellers can relate to.
Or maybe they meant a place to park, not only literally but also figuratively. A place to leave their tired mortal shells once they were done with this life. In either case, we hope they have found the perfect parking spot and can remain there forever.
A True Psychic
We’ve all heard the saying, “it’s funny 'cause it’s true.” That is certainly the case here. No matter who we are or where we come from, eventually, we are all going to die. George W. Jr. didn’t need to be a psychic to see this one coming.
However, we may not know the whole story. Maybe George had some inside information about the time or nature of his death, and the people in his life simply dismissed it. In that case, George really did see the future, and we don’t blame him for rubbing it in everyone’s faces.
Death by Aching Feet
People often say that it hurts to be beautiful. If you consider high heel shoes the epitome of female beauty, that saying is definitely true. Add to that the frequent usage of the phrase, “my (blank) is killing me,” and you could be missing out on a genuine cry for help.
We may never know what killed this woman, whether it was her quest for perfect-looking legs or an actual hitherto unknown medical condition that affects the feet, or something completely unrelated. However, we would urge all of you to take people’s complaints more seriously before it is too late.
The Long Nap
Not only did Mrs. Russell get a beautiful engraving of roses and a heart on her headstone, but she also made sure her last message was hilariously witty.
We're assuming that Gloria had quite the sense of humor, and hope that the 74-year-old Mrs. Russell is peacefully 'resting her eyes.'
