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!”
Put On A Happy Face
This headstone boils down life into one simple and somewhat depressing phrase. We hope the deceased didn’t really believe that this sentence summarized their entire life experience, but if they did, they must not have taken their passing that hard.
On the other hand, the smiley face makes it seem like they knew there was a brighter side to life, and that the sentiment was just a clever joke. In that case, the deceased must have known how to enjoy life and will probably like other people getting a kick out of their headstone.
A Plot in the Shade
Placing your grave under a tree is both pleasing to the eye and practical. The tree offers a nice view and shade from the sun and rain. However, we are pretty sure that the family who chose this scenic location didn’t mean for the headstone and the tree to merge and become one.
Many years have obviously passed since this headstone was placed here, and nature has done its work. All we can say is that the tree is definitely still in the picture, and the grave is now one of a kind.
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.
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 body. In this case, the deceased kept themselves positive, all the way to the grave.
