Sorry to start the article with an air of foreboding, but we all know that we will die eventually. In fact, in this world full of uncertainties, there are two things we are sure of – death and taxes. Our end is commemorated through eulogies from our families and friends, but these hilarious headstones are more lasting.
Headstones summarize our whole lives, which is why whoever is writing them (if you have not done so yourself) should do a pretty good job of summarizing our entire lives in a phrase. Yes, some headstones would be an accurate reflection of our lives, but some pretty hilarious headstones intertwine humor and reflect the person’s personality and character. Let us look at some of the hilarious headstones made, and at the end of the article, let us know which ones are your favorite!
Walk Like an Egyptian
Egyptians are known to dream big, and after death, they commemorate their lives not just with a headstone but with a pyramid. Their grand lives are reflected in the hieroglyphics meticulously painted or carved on the pyramid’s walls, and even up today, archaeologists are still trying to unearth pyramids and figure out what life was like back then. This headstone has grand dreams like our Egyptian ancestors and wanted to have a pyramid to reflect his grand life but had no choice but to settle for a pyramid-looking (ish) headstone.
Here is a Chair to Remember Me By
Many people have attachments to things while they are living. Some people have attachments to their designer bags, others cannot live without their favorite blanket, while others love a particular piece of furniture like a chair. For this unique headstone, there are so many questions… Did the person die in this chair? Is that the person’s favorite chair? Did that person want to have that chair before he or she died? Regardless of the answers, it is still a unique (and considerate) headstone for others to remember that person by.
