I've always wondered how The Ramones got signed up for recording the title song to Pet Semetery. That's always been one of my favorite Ramones songs.

If there were only some way to get Joey, Dee Dee and Johnny back, no matter what the consequences...

On topic, as someone who has the ashes of my last cat and my first greyhound (passed this May) I am not really surprised. There is an emotional bond between a pet and a person. Honouring them after they pass is the next logical step. I don't think I would bury my deceased pet though. Well not until either me or wifey go.

I don't get burial for humans or pets.

I can understand cremation for either, though.

That leaves dumping her in the Thames.

Hmmm. Interesting way to phrase that.

but you still can't take Grandma to the taxidermist

What if she just wanted to get her pussy stuffed? Wait, that came out wrong

I make various glass items as a hobby (aka flameworking) and putting a bit of the deceased ashes into a glass pendant is becoming quite popular.

As for me, the ashes of my cats will go with me when I'm cremated.

This shiat is ridiculous. When I die all I want is to be buried in a plain pine box out in the wilderness and let nature take its course.

/a sky burial would also be acceptable as well. Link

How many RC helicopters would we need to turn her into heli-granny?

Can I still mummify grandma at home or is that illegal as well?.

There are many references to The Ramones' songs in the book.
