20 Very Strange, Very Creative Coffins

Death is sad, dying is a goal we all meet but not necessarily one we aspire to (or expire t0, a har har har). The reality is, we’re all going to die. The loss we experience when we lose someone is an incomparable feeling but for those of us who accept that we will “hang our shoes up,” as my grandma would say, it’s nice to have a sense of humor about it.

We don’t all get to go out 120 years old, with our loved ones surrounding us but that doesn’t mean we can’t plan ahead for a funeral that actually honors who we are instead of having a whole bunch of distant cousins say nice stuff about us that doesn’t feel sincere or applicable. The best way to do this is to buy your coffin ahead of time and make sure it is the weirdest effing one you can find. A sandwich? Why not? A gatorade bottle? OK. A giant cigarette pointing out the irony of dying from smoking-related cancer? Sure, you’re so funny Uncle Miguel. RIP Uncle Miguel. 🙁

Anyway, the point is, funerals should be a celebration of someone’s life, they don’t have to be sad. The people who picked out these coffins understood who they were and that their family and friends would be in on the joke.
