Coffin And Splutterin'

Going Out In Style (Literally)

An Italian firm of undertakers has unveiled its 2008 calendar - featuring glamour models draped over its range of coffins. The calendar shows women in sexy underwear posing with coffins which can be ordered from the Cofanifunebri undertakers in Rome. Owner Maurizio Matteucci said: "It is good marketing but it is also but also a way to play down such a serious subject and to smile. Coffins are consumer goods like any other things.’’

FOOTNOTE: Stiff competition.

David..........how ironic this is!

Just this afternoon, in Omaha, Nebraska, there was a horrible shooting incident in a shopping mall.

A 19 year old young man shot many , many random shoppers.......8 of them died. Then he killed himself.

His mother found a suicide in his bedroom that said, "I want to go out in styl."

Isn't that sad??

When I opened your blog and saw that heading.......I couldn't believe it!!

Hope all is well with you.

Almost as exciting as a subscription to the magazine, "Embalmers Monthly"!

Oh yes, there really IS such a mag! I've got a cousin who's a coroner, and subscribes to it. Strange reading for all of us "civilians"! But he admits---he still prefers Field & Stream...!

I think that is sick. Sex selling death give me a break.We do need to change our fear of death and accept it as a natural part of things but I don't think this is the way to do it.
