What’s your take on ashes?
I mean, of the human kind?
Cremains are the cremated remains of a dead body. These flecks of burned-up skin and bones are often kept in a tasteful urn and displayed discreetly on a shelf or mantel.
Except sometimes this happens:
Horrifying urn comes from Personal Solutions
Yes. That is a personalized urn, designed from a photograph provided by a well-meaning loved one. The deceased’s features are meticulously re-created to . . .
OH MY GOD AND THEN THE TOP OF THE HEAD COMES OFF!!!
Sorry, but did you SEE that thing? Surely no one actually puts that in their HOUSE where they LIVE, do they? Because I will tell you now: if I woke up in the middle of the night and saw my loved one’s creepy HEAD stuffed with ASHES (and why does the candle look like part of the head?) I’d need a second urn.
Because I would die of fright, is what I’m saying.
And, look, I speak from experience. We kept the remains of my beloved dad in a plain urn for several years before scattering his ashes sort of illegally. Would my dad have wanted his ashes kept in an urn that looked like his head? No. Would I want my dad’s head-urn in my house? No. I remember what he looks like. I have photos. Personally, I’d rather FORGET what my dad looks like than have this ghoulish scooped-out HEAD as a reminder.
I’ve told people I want to be cremated, but really, I just DON’T want to be buried. Because as everyone knows, it’s almost a given that you will be buried alive. Of course, you can be cremated alive, too, but that’s quicker. No, I don’t care what happens to my body after I die. Toss it in a ditch. Throw it in a lake. Chop it up and feed it to the wolves.
But for god’s sake, PLEASE don’t put it in a JD Head-Urn.
