This woman must have been either perpetually tired or a big fan of naps to have this message written on her headstone. Maybe she liked to say this whenever one of her family members tried to interrupt her precious sleep time, and they decided to immortalize the sentiment on her grave.
People often say, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead,” and death is sometimes referred to as “The Big Sleep.” Seems like Joan was happy to finally have some uninterrupted shuteye, and anyone who tried to interfere with that was simply not welcome.
Call from Above
This headstone is somehow funny, sweet, and sad. It shows a slightly cartoonish representation of part of a woman, whom we assume is Kim, talking on an enormous phone. She looks pretty happy about what she’s hearing, and why wouldn’t she be, if she is talking to the son of God?
The wordplay is meant to make light of the fact that Kim has been “called” to leave this life for the afterlife. Despite the humor, there remains a feeling that Kim’s loved ones would have preferred for her to let the call go to voicemail, at least for a few more years.
Revenge From the Grave
There is no bigger question in this life than what happens after we die. Countless television shows, books, and movies have been made on the subject, but no one really knows. Or do they? This person is sure that now that they have passed on, they have all the answers.
It seems to us that this person must have been excluded a lot when they were alive; maybe they were the youngest sibling in the house. They have finally gotten their chance to have their own secret, which everybody wants to know, and they are not afraid to gloat.
Funny in Both Life and Death
For those of you who haven’t heard of him, Leslie Nielsen was a well-known Canadian actor and comedian who appeared in movie parodies like "The Naked Gun" series and "Airplane!" He also starred in the television show "Police Squad!" He was famous on set and off for his practical jokes and often carried a hand-controlled fart machine around.
Nielsen passed away in his sleep in 2010 after battling pneumonia. He was laid to rest in Evergreen Cemetery in Fort Lauderdale. He left one final joke on his headstone for people to remember him by, simply stating, “Let ‘er rip.”
He Won't Be Right Back
Who can forget the legendary American TV show host, Mervyn Griffin? One of the most iconic American TV personalities of the 60s and 70s, Merv Griffin was known for his catchphrases and trademark mannerisms. And one of them, which is kind of obvious for a TV show host, was, "We will be right back after this message."
This is why his headstone couldn't be more fitting - even in death, Merv managed to make people laugh while pulling on their heartstrings. Also, it's quite hilarious that they decided to underline the word 'NOT,' just in case anybody had any doubts.
