Now that is going in style!

That is wonderful. I want the same thing, but at one of our local Mormon churches. Technically, I'm still a member. I just won't share the guest list with the bishop.

Is it bad that the drag queens in some of those pics look better than the average busted hooker roundup photos posted in the local papers?

I farking hope not. Quiet as possible for me please.
 
2013-09-07 07:03:21 PM  
Nah, but the waiters will all wear jockstraps. And nothing else.
 
2013-09-07 07:03:28 PM  
Mine will be attended by the Sisters of No Mercy.

I hope not.

I'm pretty sure that my reaction to my funeral will be the same whether they throw a parade or put me through a wood chipper.....

Hell yeah! As a Houstonian I'd have an art car parade with all the flame shooting gear that was banned a few years ago. And a second line that ended at a catered bash with the city's best food and an open bar. fark mourning. What's the point when you can celebrate those who came before and the fact we are still here to remember them.

If my sister's funeral had been true to her character it would have been a luau with Poison and Stryper for entertainment instead of a thousand police officers mourning her loss while silently thinking. "Thank God it wasn't me."
 
2013-09-07 07:25:53 PM  
Probably not, but I plan on directing my loved ones to hold a wake rather than a funeral.
 
2013-09-07 07:30:02 PM  
I don't even want a service. You don't have to show other people you cared about me. Keep living, crank up a tune for me, and enjoy a good meal.

Oh, and do something nice for someone you don't know. I'd rather that than everyone having to take time off of work and all that nonsense.

Fine, but my mourners must wear cocktail attire and rainbow flag pins (even my godforsaken family) and have livers able to drink sailors and Marines under the table.

/The entire Fark community should be able to manage that

why not go through the wood chipper then they can throw you at the parade?

Burial at sea. We, as a race of man, rose from the waters so send me back.

Then everyone should go have a nice meal and sit together and talk and laugh about some of my more boneheaded foibles over my lifespan.
And that will be good enough for me. I don't want money wasted on what nature can attend to, the disposal of my carcass.
 
2013-09-07 08:04:02 PM  
I sure as fluck hope not
 
2013-09-07 08:05:52 PM  
WTF do I care?

It'll probably be a phone booth with plenty of space available

Stick a sausage up my ass, and let the dogs drag me away.

2013-09-07 08:27:08 PM  
Politicians? Cops? Religious people? Exactly how awful was this guy?
 
2013-09-07 08:27:26 PM  
No. I don't want to be anywhere near these perverted degenerates.

/Waits for bites.
 
2013-09-07 08:36:10 PM  
THAT is the way to be remembered.

Honorably, by everyone.

Fred Phelps and his ilk wasn't around for the event? Or they were there but the media did the right thing and ignored them?

If they were, they were so tame compared to the rest of the show, no one noticed they were even there...

They would have passed out from the amount of fabulous I think. Either that, or this is completely off Phelps' radar.

My grandma had a similar saying, but she said ham bone instead of sausage. A few weeks before her death, when she was still with it, she told me to make sure I got a paper to see who had ham on sale. She had a fairly evil sense of humor some times.

Done. I've already had a whole bottle of wine and I'm still sober enough to think that moving to a whiskey soda is a good idea.

/bring on the drinking!

You're not referring to roundup photos are you sweet heart?

Looks like fun, but I would prefer drag kings. :) Faaaaaabulous!

Or they were afraid of getting their asses kicked by dudes in drag. This guy was so beloved, alot of people would have risked jail. And lawsuits.

I'm having a viking funeral, except with a go-kart instead of a boat, and more pudding than vikings are probably used to.
 
2013-09-08 07:15:07 AM  
That is, without a doubt, the most beautiful funeral I've ever seen.

That was pretty amazing.

I want to be buried in a tomb. With traps and stuff like in Indiana Jones. And have a 21 gun salute with RPGs! Of course this will all never happen because I'm immortal!

CSB -

I have a friend in SF who performed as a reverse drag queen, i.e. a woman pretending to be a drag queen. Through her connections I got to attend one of the imperial coronations (2005 I think) which was pretty amazing. What topped it off was the next morning in Colma/Daly City there was an annual pre-death funeral service for Jose that apparently had been going on for years. There was a brass band, jugglers, knife performers and all kinds of silliness.ensued, capped off with a lengthy speech by Jose.

And the icing on the cake was that Jose adopted the name "Empress Norton I" and actually bought the plot next to where the real Emperor Norton I is buried.

I always heard that referred to as "bio-drag."
