Death is hard. Saying goodbye to a loved one is one of life's worst hurdles. But maybe if we had some fun with death it could be more bearable or understandable. Who hasn't thought of faking their own passing just to see the attendance and then awaken and really shock everyone? Fun is essential in sad times.

Redditor u/frenreico42 wanted to know how everyone has... or has everyone.... dreamed of ways to cause hilarity at their passing of life celebration by asking... How would you put the fun in funeral?


Oprah style....

At the end throw a bouquet of flowers to see who is next. ScotianStupid

Think bigger, throw the corpse. pototoes_

Since it's been an ongoing joke for my entire life, I actually want to be brought in late to my own funeral. crazyjake91

I am probably gonna write down something similar. "Please make sure to wheel me in about 15min late, because that's how I lived life as well." AErt2rule

'Pop goes the weasel'

Start with a closed casket. But at some point the organ begins to slowly play the music for 'Pop goes the weasel'. The music keeps getting slowly faster and faster as more and more people stare at the casket in horrific expectation. varthalon

My mom wants this but she wants a spring loaded casket full of glitter. She also wants strippers and some other random crap. And apparently I'm the one that's supposed to make this happen when she dies. mother_of_dragons011

Tased! 

Everyone gets a taser.

It depends.....

It depends on the person and family. My grandfather had a great sense of humor and loved to tell jokes. At his funeral, we celebrated his life of over 104 years. Everyone who got up to speak told a funny story or fun memory of him and a lot of laughter was had. Granadafan

Birthdays are for the dying. Funerals are for the living.

I was at a funeral of one of the aunties of my ex gf, she was from Suriname. During the whole funeral everybody was dancing and singing. At the end they told me that it was about celebrating life instead of feeling sorrow for death. lil_beanie420

Now for the details:

I would make mine a social event. Talk about me or don't talk about me. The fact that you came to see me off is good enough. My legacy has already been shared and my work here on this planet has been completed.

Now for the details:

Roasted. 

My funeral is going to also be a roast. And I want there to be some kind of accident that occurs with the corpse. PhreedomPhighter

I hope it's not your typical weenie roast. Yes, I called your weenie "typical". NicNoletree

SPLAT!!!!

Fire me out of my new corpse cannon. mykylodge

Didn't George Carlin want to be fired out of a cannon against the side of a building? SPLAT. I think it's great. It would be hard to organize though. I'm sure some safety whiner would step in as they were setting up the cannon. jerkfacebeaversucks

Just Dance....

Make my corpse into a puppet and I'll dance. Torch-Them-For-Me

Unfortunately, not every person is able to stay settled in one home their entire lives. Some people are constantly moving around.

Be it for a job, or as a lifestyle choice, the reasoning is never fully uniform. But it does cause a lot of stress, and it can be really helpful to have some guiding principles set up everywhere.

For anybody who's worked at least a few months in the food service industry, that adage that "the customer is always right" can be a total tease.

As much as adults regularly hammer home the importance of honesty with their children, parents are responsible for a significant amount of white lies and bent truth.

Remember Theranos? It was a breakthrough technology company that claimed to have devised blood tests that required very tiny amounts of blood. The hype was real: In 2015, Theranos received a $9 billion valuation and its CEO, Elizabeth Holmes, seemed prime to become a household name. Shortly afterward, she was exposed as a fraud; her trial (on charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud) has been postponed several times as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

After Redditor LineofDeath asked the online community, "What was supposed to be the next big thing but totally flopped?" people reminded us how you should never fall for the hype.
