I've heard about the avarice of the funeral industry before, especially their ability to charge exorbitant prices by getting some states to enact protectionist laws and essentially grant monopolies to the closed funeral system.

I love the concept of an 'entry level burial vault'. If the corpse performs well, can it expect to be promoted to a higher level of vault?

I want my casket to have my college mascot on it. Go geoducks!!!!! (Pronounced "gooeyduck," it's a giant clam from Washington State)

Or Edvard Munch's "The Scream"...

Naw, cremation for sure. Put my ashes in a cardboard box, and drop me in a bird sanctuary somewhere.
