Not only did Mrs. Russell get a beautiful engraving of roses and a heart on her headstone, but she also made sure her last message was hilariously witty.
We’re assuming that Gloria had quite the sense of humor, and hope that the 74-year-old Mrs. Russell is peacefully ‘resting her eyes.’
It is not a bad idea to take stock before the end of your life. This person clearly spent some time looking back and wasn’t afraid to admit that they had made some mistakes along the way. This joke isn’t just funny; it’s also relatable. We all make mistakes, and we all end up in the hole, pun certainly intended.
You have to also give them extra points for not just excelling with their financial wordplay but also literally having the headstone flush with the ground, making the entire sentence exist inside a hole.
Death by Aching Feet
People often say that it hurts to be beautiful. If you consider high heel shoes the epitome of female beauty, that saying is definitely true. Add to that the frequent usage of the phrase, “my (blank) is killing me,” and you could be missing out on a genuine cry for help.
We may never know what killed this woman, whether it was her quest for perfect-looking legs or an actual hitherto unknown medical condition that affects the feet, or something completely unrelated. However, we would urge all of you to take people’s complaints more seriously before it is too late.
What an Attitude
When a young person, who has never had the chance to live to adulthood, passes away, it is absolutely heartbreaking. This grave belongs to a 16-year-old, which is terribly sad, but at least the message on the grave embodies their age in a fitting and humorous manner.
It’s not exactly clear if this quote, modeled after the movie The Sixth Sense’s “I See Dead People”, was something that this individual might have liked to say, or if it refers to the people standing around this headstone. Either way, the irony is not lost on us, and neither is the teenage wit.
Everyone has seen those couples walking around with matching T-Shirts. Each shirt references the other person and features either overly romantic messages (“King” and “Queen”) or humorous digs (“The Boss” and “The Real Boss”). The mushy ones are usually met with uncomfortable eye-rolling, and the funny ones tend to get laughs.
This deceased duo decided that what’s good enough for their clothing is good enough for their grave. They were clearly on the same page and enjoyed the same humor, which is one of the most important things in a relationship. The joke was also complete from day one since they died on the same day.
