Hipsters everywhere are now (ironically) planning their funerals

To profess his love of the beer, Bill Bramanti of Illinois had his custom-ordered coffin resemble a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon. And then threw a party.

Note to self: Order casket and have it painted to look like a giant can of Fresca. Or R2-D2.

Ugh. Don't expect me to come to your funeral.

this is the first time i've really laughed all day. excellent post.

do you think it would be too much to custom design the inside of my final resting place? i saw some lovely grey silk drapes at pottery barn with a thin pin stripe of red...

my party could include the "sewing circle" for friends who wouldn't mind helping me stitch it up.

Thanks, Denae! Glad you liked it.

Hey, it's your funeral, er, party.

I should take this opportunity to reiterate my funeral wishes to my friends and family. This is, what, your 3rd reminder? I've given you ample time to get all of your ducks in a row. There's no excuse for it not to go as planned.
