can you say "m0r0n"?
2001-12-29 3:29:16 PM  
Damn, same thing keeps happening to me, except it's with pictures of Pamela Anderson.
2001-12-29 3:38:40 PM  
Sister or no sister, I would be pissed if someone gave me someones remains for Christmas -- and then not tell me about it.
2001-12-29 3:41:54 PM  
Merry Freakin Christmas! What is that all about? Can you say inappropriate?
2001-12-29 3:42:31 PM  
This person's last name is Money? Weird.
2001-12-29 3:59:32 PM  
That's why my family split up my brothers ashes in clear Absolute vodka bottles..seriously..He wanted it that way...
2001-12-29 4:00:19 PM  
I didn't know Walmart sold urns of dead people's ashes.
2001-12-29 4:00:36 PM  
Wow... the ashes of my sisters corpse... just what I wanted. Merry Christmas. You have made the plastic baby jesus smile.
2001-12-29 4:08:58 PM  
WHen I get ashes, the first thing I do is head to Wal-mart for a refund.
Who the hell sends ashes and doesn't label them or give fair warning. Coulda given the woman a heart attack.

Sick bastard. Musta really loved his sister.

I didn't know Walmart sold urns of dead people's ashes.

I didn't know trashy Walmart sold urns.
2001-12-29 4:20:35 PM  
this is a repeat from the other day
2001-12-29 4:21:23 PM  
The problem I have with this story is what is says about Wal-mart shoppers. I would have loved to watch these two pick though the trash at the landfill. Have you found your sister yet? No? Keep looking....
2001-12-29 4:24:07 PM  
2001-12-29 4:26:37 PM  
Show me DUH Money...

How did this get in the news? Was there a reporter just hanging out at the dump? Why would the brother or sister (dumb and dumber) call the news about it? Hmmm, I smell a rat.
2001-12-29 4:37:37 PM  
"That instant coffee you sent tasted terrible!"
2001-12-29 4:54:31 PM  
Way to respect the dead: buy urns from Wal-Mart.

I bet it was plastic and had smiling ducks on it.
2001-12-29 4:55:19 PM  
Nice present.

Fitting end to the story.

And I thought MY family was bad at Christmas.
2001-12-29 4:55:51 PM  
Don't forget: The urn was being returned because it had a broken handle...
2001-12-29 4:56:37 PM  
These jerkwads are probably going to turn around and try to sue Wal-Mart because they threw her sister away (har, it sounds funny just typing it)

Dumpster Diving for fun & profit!
2001-12-29 5:05:47 PM  
The urn came from a WalMart????

Hey ... those things are damned heavy! About 7 pounds or so. And she didn't open it?

Who makes up this stuff anyway?
2001-12-29 5:06:14 PM  
Why does it need a handle? Not like you're going to be carrying it around with you everywhere...
2001-12-29 5:23:36 PM  
at least she didn't open it up and mix up some 'hot chocolate'.....

I was just pointing out that the urn was a broken piece of garbage from Walmart.
2001-12-29 5:40:08 PM  
A broken piece of garbage that now contained her dead sisters ashes...but I blame the stupid dickhead brother for not telling her...soooo farken stupid..what a great chrissy present as well!!!!!!!!!!
2001-12-29 5:53:09 PM  
"No, no, you didn't! Your sister was in there," the Herald quoted him as telling Money.

The Herald's reporter was with him the whole time or what? how did he quote him on that?
2001-12-29 6:21:41 PM  
I always thought those freaks who run out to the store to return Christmas presents on the day after Christmas had a few screws loose. It's like they have to rush out immediately, with all of the other lemmings.
2001-12-29 6:31:23 PM  
Methinks this story belongs on the ash heap of history.

(ducks and runs)
2001-12-29 7:20:09 PM  
Sad observation...she knew it was from Wal-Mart.
2001-12-29 7:57:24 PM  
This is the feel good story of the year!
2001-12-29 8:23:14 PM  
Yeah, I read the thread and I know it has been said but, I can't help myself, so here goes.........

Who in the hell would buy an Urn from farking Walmart and put his sisters Ashes in and then mail it to his sister for Christmas and not tell her???????????


this reaks of stupidity!

I think the brother wanted to casually get rid of his sisters ashes, he probably hated the biatch!
2001-12-29 8:32:34 PM  
I did a GIS search and the only Urns Wally-mart sells is plant urns!

It was probably more like a crappy jewelry box or something!
2001-12-29 8:34:23 PM  
That is funniest thing I've read in a while. It would make a great story if there was a hayseed version of "Tales From The Crypt".
2001-12-29 8:59:51 PM  
I remember the woman from this story! A few months ago she made the news by returning childrens' clothes to Wal-Mart, unaware her daughter was still wearing them.
2001-12-29 9:32:06 PM  
i'd return my family members to walmart for a refund anyday!
2001-12-29 9:37:13 PM  
I would love to have a picture of the search at the dump.
2001-12-29 10:15:07 PM  
I looked Hytes, just not feeling too resourceful tonight....
2001-12-29 10:26:22 PM  
The important thing, JOHNDX, is that you took the bait, as I knew you would. It was my sideways "good evenin'". I have come to appreciate that very resourcefulness of which you speak. You ok?
2001-12-29 10:48:37 PM  
Not really, that troll on the other thread pissed me off, I'm afraid it pretty much set the mood for my whole damn night, no not really just kiddin' I'm fine thanks.....:)

An Indian, a black man and a Polack share an apartment.
The rent is due soon and all three are unemployed, so they all go out to look for a job.
That evening, they met to discuss their day.
The Indian says to his roommates, "Me pissed me no find no job."
The black man then says, "shiat man, I ain't hooked up no job either!"
The Polack chimes in, "Hey, I found a job!
The owner said all I had to do was show up on time at 8A.M. and I could go to work!"
Knowing that the Indian woke really early and watched the sun rise, the Polack asked the Indian to wake him at 6:30 so he could get to work on time and then went to bed.
The black man liked to play practical jokes and talked the Indian into helping him play one on the Polack.
While the Polack slept the other two painted his face black.
The Indian woke the Polack at 6:30 who then got dressed and went straight to his new job.
When he got there, he told the owner he was ready to go to work.
The owner said he didn't know what he was talking about.
The Polack reminded him of his promise to put him to work if he showed up on time.
The owner said that the guy he hired was white.
The Polack replied, "I am white".
The owner said, "No you're not, you are black, go look in the mirror!"
The Polack went to the bathroom, looked in the mirror and exclaimed, "That stupid damn Indian woke up the wrong guy!"
2001-12-29 11:40:56 PM  
Man! I don't had me pretty nervous with the set-up and all. Turned out to be a cute little joke though. Actually, tho, if there's anyone out there lookin' for trouble....
2001-12-29 11:50:42 PM  
Fark kinda blows some weekends, everyone else has a life I guess??

This is my last night at work until after the New Year, so.....Happy New Year all.

And a Happy one to you, John. I'm heading to bed early tonight. Sorry for the troll woes, and hope your night gets better. I don't know how to post links yet, but I do know that, if you're not aware of it already, will bring some wholesome joy. Take care.

His cremated sister's last words:

"What a dump."
2001-12-30 12:57:58 AM  
Its stories like this that give white trash a bad name.
2001-12-30 2:07:12 AM  
"Just the thought of having her in the dump was awful."

Yeah what about the thought of having her in an "urn" from Walmart. If my next of kin ever thought of putting me in an "urn" from Walmart I would die....again.
