Classy
 
2004-01-29 09:59:00 AM  
I figured since it got green-lighted, it MUST have a picture.

No dice.

Well, when you go, you might as well give people a laugh when they come to visit your carcass.
 
2004-01-29 10:28:46 AM  
...and there's a problem with that?

Ran out of space on the tombstone.

This guy has class out the ass.
 
2004-01-29 11:48:06 AM  
And a new set of teeth. Classic.
 
2004-01-29 11:48:10 AM  
Lee said he also would buy a new set of teeth and some good walking shoes

That's right buddy, live it up!!
 
2004-01-29 11:48:11 AM  
New teeth too? Class act. Mmm hmm.
 
2004-01-29 11:49:36 AM  
...and a partridge in a pear tree
 
2004-01-29 11:49:43 AM  
Ah, lottery winners... What would Fark.com do without you?
 
2004-01-29 11:50:51 AM  
I don't get it. Picture please...
 
2004-01-29 11:51:02 AM

2004-01-29 11:51:31 AM  
I bet he had a mullet too.
 
2004-01-29 11:52:07 AM  
All that money still can't buy this dumbass some class

you can take the lotto winner out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of the lotto winner
 
2004-01-29 11:52:17 AM  
If it didnt say picture of the back of a naked woman, you would care about seeing a pic
 
2004-01-29 11:53:06 AM  
I didn't know they had redneck truckdrivers in Canada, but apparently they do.
 
2004-01-29 11:54:17 AM  
Honestly, I cant imagine which memorial park would be willing to let him install an atrocity like that.

most don't want any headstones at this point.
 
2004-01-29 11:54:59 AM  
So, is he gonna be carrying a hundred grand in his unlocked car as well?
 
2004-01-29 11:55:24 AM  
It makes you wonder how much of the "classic" art archaeologists have found was considered tacky by our ancestors.

"I say, Farkophenous has really gone bonkers with all these armless statues of topless women. I wish he hadn't won the Lotterius Maximus jackpot..."
 
2004-01-29 11:55:24 AM  
great tag! Color me amused. mang.
 
2004-01-29 11:57:12 AM

Obituaries :

Phil Lee died to day at the age of 87. He was well-known among locals, pehaps most so for a now-infamous incident in which a glass of champagne he was drinking at a local casino of the Watchakee Indiana Reservation caused a nearby slot machine to spark, which in turn startled an exotic dancer on the stage in front of which he was ....

bah ! this has become tiresome ...
 
2004-01-29 11:58:45 AM  
going to try to break the casino?

a fool and his money....
 
2004-01-29 11:58:46 AM  
One might think he would buy some new lungs...

why couldn't these elements be used in a classy manner? sounds alot more interesting than some chubby cherubs or some such nonsense.
 
2004-01-29 12:00:24 PM  
sounds like a photoshop contest
 
2004-01-29 12:00:47 PM  
Yeah, with 100K he could even buy some GOLD PLATED lungs.

This doesnt top my ideas of having a tombstone of myself doing the John Travolta pose from "Saturday Night Fever" with a button that when pressed plays "Stayin' Alive" and lights up a disco ball or the idea of having the Mothership from Parliment desend upon the funeral and George Clinton coming out to take my body away to be converted to funkawattic energy on the planet Funktron.

My head hurts, I am so confused, What?

Awesome. Absolutely. Farking. Awesome. Someone buy this man a drink.

"a champagne glass, a royal flush, a slot machine, a nude woman facing backwards and a stick of dynamite with a lit fuse."

Why would he have the Kennedy family coat-of-arms put on his tombstone?
 
2004-01-29 12:08:01 PM  
If I won the lotto I would buy a small third world country, enslave their inhabitants and eat their young. Come on you all would, or is this just me?
 
2004-01-29 12:08:12 PM  
why don't rich people ever win the lottery?
/rigged
 
2004-01-29 12:08:25 PM  
*shrug* his headstone, his business.

if its his wish to have that "atrocity" at his final resting place, then so be it.
 
2004-01-29 12:09:14 PM  
God bless him.

That dude in WVA had a successful construction company. He was already a millionaire I understand.
 
2004-01-29 12:10:15 PM  
yeah - that might be true...but i don't know how he was a millionaire...he basically leaves his money out with cookies and milk...

I'll take pepperoni on mine...
/got nothin'
 
2004-01-29 12:12:24 PM  
I dont care whats on mine, so long as it has a delivery date in the year 2099
 
2004-01-29 12:12:54 PM  

To the people who scream out this guy has no class:


Hey, he'll be dead when this tombstone is laid at his head (at least, I assume he'll be dead). what does he care ? And realize that at any given time, a yokel could go to your grave and dig up your remains for a satanic ritual.


Personally, I'm surprised he left out the dead hooker that was to be buried in the same coffin as well.

 
2004-01-29 12:13:13 PM  
Rest in puss.
