Given the line they wanted on the headstone, you can see that the world is better off without him; too bad he didn't leave sooner.

And what kind of 23 year old already has his tombstone inscription selected?

Ooh, he's an edgy rapper and those lines were from lyrics that he wrote.

vonster: How ghetto...


Pure trash. Doesn't need to be ghetto, just trash.

I'm a genealogist by hobby. I'll wander around cemeteries that have been closed for 50 years to new burials to chase down one I need for the records. Oldest I've found for the family is 1817- I have older for the family, but 200+ years of rain have washed the lettering away. All I have is proof that they should be there, and a mostly blank stone.

Nobody's going to care about your street cred, man. You're just making it plain to anyone that walks through for the next century or two (or longer for some granite types) that you're an asshole.

I don't see the problem.  People shouldn't be reading strangers' headstones.

I like the old graveyards that the Oddfellows used to work with.  It's interesting to see how many Oddfellows were also Freemasons.  Not too many seem to have been in the York Rite though.

Oddly enough I walk to work and the closest way to get there is right through a graveyard of the first Euro settlers. I really can't help but read and imbibe some of that stuff. Johann died in 1876 wow! It's harmless.
 
2013-05-10 03:18:21 PM  
You gonna remember the damn name
I give a f- if I die with no damn friends
I got my fam by my side and that's until the end.


So he cares that he dies with no friends? Doesn't everyone?

Or did he mean "I don't give a f-" and is just retarded?

Meh. Just noticed the potential discrepancy, is all. Really, I could care less.
 
2013-05-10 03:18:22 PM  
Classy family. Too bad they weren't in the car as well...

Sounds like he was a very tasteful and high class individual.

In 20 years, everyone will have cuss words on thier gravestones. It's like tattoos.

Sounds like fun.  I'm also into genealogy; there's at least two people in the tree who the family couldn't afford a stone for, and a few that I've literally walked circles around an un-manned cemetery looking for (but can't find; guessing calling the diocese is the next step).  But, unless I head the 650 miles up to Matane, Quebec it's the furthest I can go.

what's wrong with "firetruck?"
 
2013-05-10 03:40:19 PM  
I don't think it was not allowed because of the word "fark", but rather for the horrendous use of grammar elsewhere in the wanted inscription

/grammar nazis will not stand for crappy grammar, even after you died

What impresses me is, the cemetary said no, and the family said OK - we'll come up with something else. It kinda sounds like everyone behaved like adults.

This.  Reading TFA, I thought, "Wait, no one got assaulted or even sued.  Why is this on FARK?"

Because Fark is a site for weird news.

My bro-in-law picked out a casket that was painted to look like a ups package that had been rerouted a bajillionty times and was beat to hell. It had RETURN TO SENDER painted in big letter across the whole thing.

Miss that guy.

A cemetery outside of Mill Creek WV has a curious tombstone where a woman wishes for her sisters to BURN IN HELL ft or going against her wishes. I guess she got the last word.

Billy Connolly reckoned that when he died he wanted to be buried under a slab on island Loch Lomond where people could have picnics and cups of tea. He wanted a memorial stone with very fine print so people would have to get up close to read "You're standing on my balls"
