I love how they offer everything from regular urns, to jewelry urns for your animals and loved ones.
I was really torn trying to decide which was the creepiest of their offerings… the Personal Urn or the Cremation Bear Urn. On one hand, you can put your own smiling head on the mantle. On the other hand, who doesn’t love a teddy bear with a surprise inside? I think that I’ll go with the personal urn, but you don’t have to get it in YOUR likeness if you don’t want to! They claim that they can create the urn “in the image of your loved one or favorite celebrity or hero.” So who would I be? I bet that Elvis is probably pretty popular. Maybe even Michael Jackson. I think that I’d go for something a little more unique. Maybe Gary Busey, or Jar-Jar Binks. Just set me at the head of the table (sorry, had to) or beside the bed. Also doubles as a door-stop and paper-weight. Please, though… buy me a decent ROOTS cap to cover up that not so subtle lobotomy line.
And if I DO manage to get hit by a dumptruck, or an angry moose, good news! I try to keep a couple of posts queued at random intervals, so the blog will keep going! In fact, I have one queued for the spring of 2010, so you’ll have to check back periodically to make sure that you don’t miss anything.
It’s my blog insurance policy.
