Nice headline, subby

Something tells me this is an attention-whoreish family.

Wonder how Kara will feel about her gravestone to be when she's 70+ years old?

No doubt the remaining sister will die of embarrassment.

Um, she's dead; so, I guess she'd feel nothing.

I'm with the cemetery on this one. I don't want Spongebob's holes attracting jellyfish on windy days.

I don't think she'll be in much of a position to mind. On the other hand, I wonder how she would have felt on the day before she died, if she knew that her family was going to erect a memorial to her in the image of Spongebob Squarepants. Most fans do have limits, and while I cannot claim to know for certain that this would have been beyond hers, I'd speculate that the likelihood is very, very high.

Dammit!  I checked it like 5 times, too.  Can't believe I missed that.  First headline approved and it's got a freaking typo in it. Lame!  Should be "on" obviously. No way to edit it now, I suppose, is there?

""As an historic cemetery, we must constantly balance the needs of families who have just suffered a loss with the thousands of families who have entrusted us in the past," said Gary Freytag, Spring Grove president and CEO. "

His use of "an historic" caused me to read this in a Cockney accent.

$26 thousand for headstones, I bet the USO could have used some of that money.

Phew... they did. Thanks!  Glad my mistake isn't on permanent display anymore... except here in the comments.  D'oh!

A giant standing Spongebob? Just say no. An etching on a marker I couldn't object to since it wouldn't screw with the appearance of the area unless you looked for it.

FORT CARSON, Colo. - The Army has filed murder charges against a Fort Carson soldier accused of killing his soldier-girlfriend during a Valentine's Day attack at a Colorado Springs motel.

Sgt. Montrell Mayo is accused of striking Cpl. Kimberly Walker then cutting her with a broken drinking glass and choking her, according to a charge sheet released by Fort Carson Friday.

Fort Carson officials said Mayo is charged with premeditated murder and murder in the death of the 28-year-old Walker, who was stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas.

Friends said Walker was Mayo's girlfriend and she had traveled to Colorado to see him for a Valentine's Day rendezvous, according to an arrest warrant.

Colorado Springs police said officers were called to the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Circle Drive about 6:30 a.m. on Valentine's Day to do a welfare check. When they arrived, they found Walker's body in the room they were checking.

Police said 24-year-old Mayo fled Colorado, but soon surrendered to police in his home town of Greenville, N.C. Mayo is being held at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center.

If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of life without parole, forfeiture of pay and a dishonorable discharge.


Interesting. If the police feel like it, they can do a welfare check on your hotel room.

and

I'm sure that in the near future, all the discharges the killer gets will be quite dishonorable.

They said someone called them, probably the hotel. It's unlikely that they can just come in at whim.

Spongebob Squarepants marker stone is fine with me. Much more realistic than fat cherub babies and depictions of what an angel may look like.

Maybe they're worried about jellyfish migration.

They offered to buy her a new stone but are they paying for the old ones? 13,000 each?
 
2013-10-21 12:35:27 PM
$26,000 well spent.
 
2013-10-21 01:15:50 PM
But if they really, really want to go through with this, then they should send the cemetery some Spengbab headstones. The undertakers will be positively begging for Spongebob after the first few of those.

I'm not so old that I don't know who Spongebob Squarepants is, but I'm old enough to have never actually seen the show, so all I got from the headline is the same feeling I used to get when I visited 9gag.

I have lots of family buried at Spring Grove Cemetery.  At first, I thought..What a great monument, and how messed up it is for the cemetery to reject it. Especially after the family consulted with a cemetery employee before the purchase, but then after reading the cemetery's letter that said they apologize and they will pay for a new marker that fits their guidelines, I have to take the cemeteries side.

It seems the cemetery employee made a mistake by not giving accurate info about their guidelines to the family, and the cemetery is paying for that mistake, and gave a sincere apology.

The family should put the Spongebob monuments on their own property.  They are very cool monuments.

Way back in '76, while preparing for Philmont,  some of my boy scout troop did a couple shakedowns by hiking from Greenhills to Springrove Cemetery for overnights. At the time there were hundreds of acres of Pristine woods just waiting for the time when they would bury people there. Not something you would expect to find surrounded by neighborhoods on the brink of becoming demilitatized zones.

How about a nice pineapple instead? You can imagine that SpongeBob SquarePants is inside the pineapple, like the elephant inside the python that the aviator draws at the beginning of The Little Prince.

Pineapples will give the cemetery a nice Second Empire air if they are tastefully done.

In Scotland there is an aristocratic folly in the shape of a pineapple. You can rent it for a vacation if you want to be able to say you have lived in a bonny pineapple, over the Ocean, rather than under the sea.

I would be raising holy hell if those were going to next to mine for all eternity.  I keep thinking of those "regrettable" tattoos that some people choose.  If they want SpongeBob, fine, they need to dig up Karen and bury her away from other people.

There's a fine line between classy and tacky.

A headstone with an etching of SpongeBob on it would be fine but two 7' statues of SpongeBob is just tacky.
Perhaps if a small child had died, a normal sized headstone statue of SpongeBob would have even been acceptable but not particularly for a grown woman murdered by her boyfriend.

If the cemetery gets bullied into allowing these, it would set a precedent for even tackier headstones in the future.

Yeah, I want a giant statue of Obama bin Laden or George W Hitlar on my gravesite.
