    It is truly amazing what kind of things you can find on the internet. The only question now is what are the karmic repercussions of pre-purchasing a coffin?

    Ha! What will they think of next? I’m waiting for the day I can just buy a whole funeral home package half off through the internet.

    You’re really setting yourself up as the crazy neighbor when people find out you’re storing a coffin in the basement.
    It’d be fun to bring out at parties though, as a conversation piece.

    it would be cool to have in your spare bedroom and when someone comes to stay the night show them to the casket…
