That has the highest WTF quotient of any link I've seen this year. Too bad it has to go in 2014's WTF of the Year awards, this being December.

W.T.F?

Well they are differentiating themselves in the market place but I still prefer cremation.
 
2013-12-01 10:17:01 AM  
I wouldn't mind burying myself -- 6 inches deep or course.
and how the hell do they get the casket lid shut??
 
2013-12-01 10:34:04 AM  
Made me a little stiff.
 
2013-12-01 10:37:29 AM  
I want one.
 
2013-12-01 10:38:57 AM  
Looks like partial rigor mortis has set in over here.
 
2013-12-01 10:42:48 AM  
What on earth is a sexual protest?  Actually, don't tell me.

That is a farking creepy and farking brilliant idea.

/Where do I get one?

If you've ever met undertakers, they're like soldiers and surgeons - they get used to death. They can't show it, but off-duty, they have the same sick sense of humour about death because they just can't be those men all the time. If they didn't laugh about it, they'd go mad. They buy coffins like a baker buys flour - it's a product for their job, and no-one has a problem with flour mills putting scanty birds on a calendar for bakers.

So my dad was on the treadmill one day and he was pushing it pretty hard, his breathing got going pretty heavy.  A local Funeral Home director, friend of the family and the fellow who buried two of my grandparents, walked by and handed my dad his card saying, "Sounds like you might need this soon."

The June 2013 is a HUGE WTF.

I honestly don't see what the big deal is, coffins are inanimate objects, same as a car calender...
 
2013-12-01 12:49:23 PM  
Freakin' hot!  So expensive though, according to this page: http://www.kalendarzlindner.pl/purchase/

By my math, that makes it US$51.37 for the calendar including shipping.  Does that sound about right?

2013-12-01 01:23:21 PM  
If people are offended by this, they really need to stay away from every Internet goth cheesecake site, old photoshoots of Vampira and Elvira, and every party store around Halloween. They should also avoid Rob Zombie videos, but that's just good general advice for everyone.

Who says that Death can't be sexy?

Death is a part of Life.
Do not fear the Reaper.

Oh dear, people are mad at us and creating all kinds of publicity for our products. How will we ever survive the shame and guilt?

/Just pull that dumptruck full of money in over there pal, I'll be with you as soon as I mail out some more of these calendars

Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: What on earth is a sexual protest?  Actually, don't tell me.


Came here to say this. Like when PETA would rather go naked than wear fur or... what?

I dunno. I thought the photography was kind of creative. The coffins also seem really nice, with some lovely engraved details.

Headline probably needs "mildly NSFW" added as there are some (tasteful) nerps.
 
2013-12-01 02:10:38 PM  
Makes me want to buy one of their caskets. Great marketing idea.

tbh, I'm surprised it only took 5 years for anyone to see this, much less be offended by it.
 
2013-12-01 02:51:47 PM  
I have a two-part question: what is a "sexual protest" and how do I get one at my place?
 
2013-12-01 02:56:50 PM  
I'm not so offended by associating caskets with nudity, as I am by the practice of using women's bodies as accessories in selling something.

[insert Stephen Fry quote about being offended]

Yeah, but it's the perfect Christmas gift for someone I know.
 
2013-12-01 03:24:39 PM  
Why all the guns? Are they advocating specific cause of death?

/swords are sexier
 
2013-12-01 03:49:00 PM  
Yeah, fark that. (turns page) And that. (turns page) And definitely that...
 
2013-12-01 03:55:03 PM  
I don't see the problem.  Death is natural; sex is natural.  We use sex to sell products dealing with other bodily functions/processes, e.g., eating/drinking.

My grandma just got a "Thinking of You this Holiday Season" card from the local funeral home. The director is in her bridge club.

If your business depends on dead people calling you, consider changing your marketing plan.

I seen worse, like a hydraulic fluid company giving away a calendar with scantily clad women pouring fake (god I hope so) oil over themselves.

I hate "calendars" that are just a huge picture with a series of tiny numbers underneath, in a row. That's not a calendar. That's a poster with numbers on the bottom. There's no room to write anything, and no days of the week listed. It's useless as a calendar.
