Faulty Coffins

Blog Posted:4/14/2022 7:49:00 PM

Ya know? I was just watching tv and the commercials were about some kind of recall or something and then about another faulty product. One of those “if you used this product and got sick or died, call this number”
So I got to thinking. I have never heard of a recall on faulty caskets. I mean; how would one know if a casket they bought for their loved one was faulty or leaky? You’d have to dig em back up and check periodically?
And… have you priced those suckers? They’re awful proud of em. Therefore; when I die I want a clause in my funeral deal to where they have to dig me up every 5 years or so, to check the casket for leaks and stuff. Ya know? I want a warrantee on that box. 
Oh I dunno maybe I think too much. Did this just get weird?

Faulty Coffins. If I ever start a rock band that will be our name!!

here they are folks the Faulty Coffins. I do think too much, and yeah this did just get weird.

A BIT OF USELESS INFO TO CHEER YOU UP: Famadihana is a funerary tradition of the Malagasy people in Madagascar. Known as the turning of the bones, people bring forth the bodies of their ancestors from the family crypts and rewrap them in fresh cloth, then dance with the corpses around the tomb to live music. According to Malagasy belief, people are not made from mud, but from the bodies of the ancestors. Hence they hold their forefathers in high regard. Its origins cannot be traced beyond the 7th-century. Researchers are of the opinion that the Famadihana festival has its roots in Samhain, a festival similar to Halloween.

Kelly, your blog was great, it made me smile and reminded me of my Grandma, she prepaid her funeral, even picking out her coffin and she would say in a very proud voice, "I will have you know that my coffin is waterproof and soundproof !" Neither has ever been proven ~Constance

Just told my Nan about your new band name. She said it would go brilliantly with the song "Baggy Trousers" by the band Madness.... Quite appropriate don't ya think???? Lol

Ha ha! Love this... Good to know that my mind is not alone in the over thinking phases! ... What a funny result to go from faulty caskets to naming a band faulty coffins!! It actually sounds like a real name of a band. (Lol) :-D

Yes, quite amusing Kelly, I worked at a cemetery 2 summers in my youth as a crew-helper, oh my the stories I could tell you...just one, a lg lake was on the property, rumor was crew leaders all had seen a diaphonous lady ghost often walking the perimeter...well, one day we saw her & boss said "why don't you go up to her & try to talk"...I did...she didn't acknowledge me and just kept gliding along, really otherworldly...true story...jimbo
