Default Idea for my Funeral...

Let's start by saying I'm only 40 and in no immediate danger. I did loose my Father 2 years ago and it got me too thinking about my own funeral.

Cremation is a must for me, can't stand the idea of slow decay but either option is boring and quite overdone.

I heard an add on the radio for a company that prints politicians faces on clay pigeons. You can get BO, Pelosi, Palin, whoever you want and I thought, hey, why not have your Ashes pressed into clay pigeons so your buddies and kids could have a good time sending you off in style?

Picture it, nice day, favorite gun club or shooting area, a thrower, a dozen shooting positions, and your closest friends and Familly scattering your ashes in style!

Now to find someone who makes clays and see if I can Pre arrange the order!

That's my idea, what are yours?

Tack

I like your idea about the clay pigeons, sounds pretty cool.

I want to be packed into a cannon, naked, and shot into Mt. Vesuvius

I read where this guy who was integral to the design and development of disc golf had his ashes pressed into commemorative putters & sold to raise money for a foundation. It made me wonder about dildos and whether or not they would be willing to market one called "The GraveRobber".


I believe i have seen ads for shotgun shells loaded with ashes of the recently passed.

And what if you wind up pressed into the "toy" that Janet Reno buys.

I think we've got us a cottage industry.

Load me up! Give them to my wife and daughters. Any man mistreat them and I'll be in their azz instead of on it.

Oookay.
I only asked my brother-in-law and a sister to bury me with my first hi-power service competition rifle, an M1A. There's no doubt but that they'd steal it and so it isn't in their future anymore however.

I 'spose I should make the balance of arrangements for everyone's sake, eh?
