This person, or their family, decided to mark their final resting place with the statue of a man who is lying down, holding a head in their hands. The man and the head are looking at each other, and we are left with a whole lot of questions.
They could have at least left some kind of inscription that would explain what was going on. Now we are left wondering whose head is that, where’s the rest of him, and what exactly they were thinking when they chose this. Or maybe that’s the point?
What an Attitude
When a young person, who has never had the chance to live to adulthood, passes away, it is absolutely heartbreaking. This grave belongs to a 16-year-old, which is terribly sad, but at least the message on the grave embodies their age in a fitting and humorous manner.
It’s not exactly clear if this quote, modeled after the movie The Sixth Sense’s “I See Dead People”, was something that this individual might have liked to say, or if it refers to the people standing around this headstone. Either way, the irony is not lost on us, and neither is the teenage wit.
Everyone has seen those couples walking around with matching T-Shirts. Each shirt references the other person and features either overly romantic messages (“King” and “Queen”) or humorous digs (“The Boss” and “The Real Boss”). The mushy ones are usually met with uncomfortable eye-rolling, and the funny ones tend to get laughs.
This deceased duo decided that what’s good enough for their clothing is good enough for their grave. They were clearly on the same page and enjoyed the same humor, which is one of the most important things in a relationship. The joke was also complete from day one since they died on the same day.
A lot of people feel connected to their computers, but it takes some real computer freaks to want their PC, with monitor and keyboard, on top of them for eternity. We have to admit that having their picture on the monitor is a nice touch, but where is the mouse?
Unfortunately for this tech-savvy couple, technology has moved on since they passed away. Instead of having a headstone that is timeless, their grave ends up looking really dated. In a couple of decades, kids walking by may not even know what that weird thing on the grave is.
Unable to Rise to the Occasion
It’s safe to assume that this family did some baking in the past, but it still couldn’t have been easy to grow up with a last name like "Yeast." The amount of bread jokes that poor John must have put up with in his life boggles the mind.
However, sometimes when we near the end of our lives, we make peace with things that used to annoy us. It’s nice that the Yeast family has taken back ownership of their name and has beaten all the graveyard comedians to the punch.
