There are lots of sober graves that will have you wondering about what kind of person is stretched out beneath your feet. Usually, we get little more than a name, birth date, death date, and some affiliations. Karl Bratz, however, wanted people to know he was the generous sort.
He decreed that a large beer barrel would be part of his final resting place, including the inscription “Have a drink on me.” A touch more literal than how it’s usually understood, but people seem to have taken to it since we can see gifts of wine bottles in the shot.
Arguing in the Great Beyond
Just because a long-wedded couple is no longer together in life doesn't mean the relationship has ended. While it's possible that this was planned beforehand, it's just as likely that one of them passed away (for some reason, it feels like the mister went first) and left a funny note.
Then the second to go (likely the wife) added her own spin on the joke. They might have bickered, but surely they loved each other, otherwise, they wouldn't have played along so well. Just because you bicker with someone, that doesn't mean you can't also love them.
I Wonder What He Liked Maybe
There are plenty of unique gravestones and headstones out there, and here's a premium example. Champion billiards player Walter Lindrum in the Melbourne General Cemetery comes with a fake pool table, a couple of balls, and even a pool cue.
You can't use them to play, unfortunately, even though we think Lindrum would have enjoyed such a thing – there's just no way to keep the balls or cue from being stolen, damaged, or worn out by the weather. Still, it's a unique gravestone that sticks in your mind, just like a pool cue would if thrown hard enough.
Never Stop the Hustle
Just because you're in the afterlife doesn't mean you can't earn fast cash. It makes perfect sense for a professed psychic to be able to give you a hand even after she's passed on, though it doesn't tell us where we're supposed to put the bills. Do you think she takes Paypal?
Honestly, five dollars for a palm reading isn't a bad deal, but that's likely because Rita can't update her prices for inflation. And how does she tell you the details of your life based on arbitrary lines on your palm? In a dream? Do you get an email?
Hitting Them Hard
At the end of a long life, a lot of us will have no choice but to look back at some of the mistakes we've made. This man has done a similar thing – despite, as the included information tells us, that he is still alive.
He made a headstone calling two of his wives the meanest women in the world while he was still alive. What chutzpah. If he dies under suspicious circumstances, we know exactly who to investigate. There's even a little bit of rhyming thrown in there, too. This man's an artist and likes to live dangerously.
