Funny Quotes for Your Epitaph
A. First person quotes
Don’t make me come out there!
I have nothing further to say.
Joke’s over… let me out NOW!
Wife, Friend, Love, Psycho
Damn it’s dark in here
I knew this would happen
Are you happy now?
I made some good deals
And I made some bad ones.
I really went in the hole with this one.
Now I know something you don’t!
I told you I was sick
Reincarnating… I’ll be right back
I’ll be back
Don’t laugh… you’re next
I came here without being consulted
And I leave without my consent
I’d rather be shopping
I’d rather be hunting
Follow me at your own risk
It was fun while it lasted
I’ve achieved Step One to becoming a zombie
2. Second person quotes
You have a whole eternity to think inside the box
Are you happy now?
It does my heart a world of good
To see you in a box of wood
You’ve achieved Step One to becoming a zombie
You have reached your final destination
D. Third person quotes
The shell is here but the nut is gone.
Here rests [name], second-fastest draw in [city or state]
He Loved Bacon.
Oh, and his wife and kids too.
Another One Bites the Dust
He had some faults and many merits
He died of drinking ardent spirits
On the 22nd of June
[Name] went out of tune
Raised Four Beautiful Daughters
With Only One Bathroom
Still There Was Love
Died From Not Forwarding That Email To Ten People
Return to Sender
Shopped Till She Dropped
She lived each day as if it were her last… especially this one
Laid to rest
No mouring please
At his request
He lived, he loved, he laughed, he left.
Bonus: If your last text message went on your headstone, what would it say?
Not too long ago the Twitterverse had some fun with this question: If your last text message went on your headstone, what would it say?
The question appears to be first pondered by comic artist Dan McDaid, who tweeted:
Bad news: the last text you sent is what’s going on your headstone— Dan McDaid (@danmcdaid)
He immediately responded to his own tweet: Mine is “…I’ll be up shortly”, which is optimistic to say the least
Fans quickly responded with macabre glee, and the trend spread. Here are some of the best from thousands of responses.
BTW, mine was (and I seriously did not plan this)… “Looking forward to when you guys come visit!!”
