Judging by her headstone, dear Penny J. must have led a life of both humor and charity work. Why else would she have such clever lines written as her famous last words?
Thank God these words weren’t written on the walls of a pyramid, or grave robbers would have interpreted it as an invitation to dig in.
For those who don't know, Samuel Whittemore was an American farmer and soldier that became the oldest known fighter in the American Revolutionary War. And now we know why - the guy was the colonial version of Sylvester Stallone. Not only did this man manage to kill three soldiers at the age of 80, but he survived an insane beating and lived for 18 more years!
Now, if that's not something to write on your headstone, we don't know what is.
Good Old Fred
We hope the only reason that was written on Fred's headstone was for rhyming purposes and not because that's what actually happened. It's hard to imagine a more infuriating death than having a big rock fall on your head. Then again, a great big rock did technically fall on his head.
To his credit, though, Fred probably was quite good - why else would someone worry about keeping their visitors entertained with a funny little limerick until the end of time?
Living a sustainable life takes a lot, and you don’t need Greta Thunberg to tell you that. As it turns out, you can leave a sustainable message on your headstone as well.
This person’s second option for the headstone inscription must have been "reduce, reuse, recycle" but they opted for a more humorist approach.
Jeremy Beadle was a very well-known name in English television. The presenter and producer kept entertaining the living even after his death.
His beautiful headstone is a nod to his love of books, and the tongue-in-cheek words are a nod to his love of humor, and his curated collection of amusing facts.
