Extremely rare odd burial trifecta in effect.

I think it's the "posing with the corpse" aspect.

That is actually a fairly old practice. Fark even had a link to early photographs of dead folks posed with their families only last month.
 
2014-02-01 09:45:43 AM
Aww. That's sweet.  I hope my family does the same with my corpse, only in a bar.  I'll take care of the pickling to save them some trouble.

Damn Puerto Ricans, stealing the idea of an Irish Wake from my people!

And no booze! They aren't even doing it right!

Brown people, right? Stay classy, Subby.

I don't think Subby is racist. I think Subby just has open contempt for people who grieve differently than he does, which is just a slightly different kind of sick.

then everyone there can kinda just leave one by one and leave your corpse there to pick up the tab.

"ok buddy it's closing time and your friends left you with a 1200 dollar tab.......buddy?"
 
2014-02-01 09:50:52 AM
Like others are saying, it was his dying wish.  I don't see a problem here.

Is the standing eight count in effect?
 
2014-02-01 09:51:54 AM
I see that it has already been pointed out that this is an old school practice.
I also see the motorcycle/boxer comparison has been made.

So..... I guess it's time for an early nap.

I would die of shame if my friends ran up only a $1200 bar tab at my funeral.

Oh, do most Puerto Ricans prop up dead people in a boxing ring?  What a fascinating culture.
 
2014-02-01 10:00:40 AM
And we've found the opponent for George Zimmerman's upcoming boxing match!  He's already wearing a hood, and he's already been shot dead.  Fatass might be able to take him.

I've already expressed my wish to be waked, showing me fapping the shower.  Everybody nodded, but, I have to wonder.

When you're one of the perpetually offended, stuff like that is meaningless.  In fact, bring it up, it makes you even more of a racist.

I want to be positioned on a toilet so it looks like someone just opened the bathroom door and I'm yelling to close it.

I want to be remembered as a I lived.

Yes the country that drains bodies of fluids and puts them in $2000 metal boxes has something to say about strange.

I don't believe it's a deliberate attempt at racism, so put the outrage away Francis.

As for posing with the corpse. It's been done for years. Post mortem photography was all the rage in the 19th century. Personally, I think it's gruesome, but most people's tolerance of death and seeing death is probably higher than mine.

...link to an article (tastefully done) on the British website The Daily Mail. Still, may not be safe for work. View with caution.
 
2014-02-01 10:17:59 AM
This used to be very common in our country and still is in others (as someone stated in an above comment with link). Unclutch your pearls, subby.

Why do some of you think this is some kind of cultural/Puerto Rican/brown people thing as opposed to just something a random guy allegedly wanted as he lay dying?

One of my drinking buddies is counting down the days right now, cancer from Agent Orange. He's made some things clear about his funeral: Open bar, no crying (even his wife), friends posing for pictures. He wants people to have good memories about saying their goodbyes to him, not just remembering the good times when he was alive.

Propping up dead ones was a Irish tradition for centuries.  It was common to prop the dead person up in a corner of the room while family members had one last celebration with them.

The "race" is Hispanic. The nationality is Puerto Rican. Or Cuban. Or Guatemalan. Or Mexican. Take your pick.

The children one's are heartbreaking,  I read about how allot of women at the time would distance themselves from their sick child because they didn't want the emotional damage when the child passed on.

They would get fall down drunk and sing unintelligible gibberish and round out the night with a fight.

I dunno, smittard basically used an example of one person's dying wish and extrapolated it to the entire culture.  So what, then, bigot?  That works.  Smittard is bigot then.

Is that better, Sir Pedant-a-lot?
