THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY
Yesterday, I asked...
"Bill Bramanti of South Chicago Heights, IL will be going in style. He bought a custom-designed casket shaped like a what?"
62% said "Race Car"
- Doesn't make much sense. Why be in such a hurry?
No one said "Fire Cracker" or "Proctor-Silex Food Chopper"
38% got it right with "Beer Can"
According to The Associated Press, Bill Bramanti will love Pabst Blue Ribbon eternally, and he's got the custom-made beer-can casket to prove it. "I actually fit, because I got in here," said Bramanti of South Chicago Heights. He threw a party Saturday for friends and filled his silver coffin — designed in Pabst's colors of red, white and blue — with ice and his favorite brew. Bramanti ordered the casket from Panozzo Bros. Funeral Home in Chicago Heights, and Scott Sign Co. of Chicago Heights designed the beer can.
Dude's got the name of his construction company on the side, too! There's good advertising. Gotta love a construction worker who loves to drink. I wonder if he plans on being buried in it, or just crumpled up and chucked alongside the road.
I love the concept here. It's not very green, but it's fun. And I do believe FUNerals should be fun. And I love that he's already using it. I guess PBR is appropriate because of how much it already tastes like formaldehyde. Me? Make my coffin look like a Tofurky box.Don't forget the gravy.
