Funerals, cemeteries, and funeral homes are just plain weird. Really, anything having to do with death is bizarre. When there is a death, there’s sadness, humor, peace, bitterness, pragmatism, expensive fees, cheapskates, tradition, alternative contemplation, memories, and individuality. As unique as each person is, so is their death. And as unique as each person’s family is, so is their funeral. Here are some bizarre funeral pics we’ve discovered in our time in the funeral industry.
