Death is a touchy subject for most people. Some never want to talk about it. Others immediately invoke the bible when the subject comes up, even if they’re in the presence of an atheist. Atheists even begin to wonder if they might just believe in God afterall — at least when they think about the unknown that is death. Why? Because death makes us nervous. And death makes us sad.
What about humor? These tombstones are proof that you can be funny when facing death. The folks who died had enough time to consider their options for how they wanted to be remembered by family and love ones. Apparently, they wanted to be remembered as funny. Or, they wanted to make the people who’d visit them at the cemetary laugh a little, which is a kind way of saying goodbye, actually.
There’s no right or wrong way of dying, but these tombstones definitely make us realize that death doesn’t have to be so dark. It’s okay to laugh about the end of someone’s life, at least if that’s how they wanted it.
