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....

You may have heard of the phrase "retail therapy" before, which is the act of buying things for personal enjoyment.

Well, there's some truth to that.

The University of Michigan actually studied the affects of shopping on our sadness levels. Purchasing something you enjoy can actually decrease sadness 40 times better than not purchasing something.

There are tons of other benefits like dopamine increases, anxiety reduction and improved mood. We wanted to know what people are buying to give them that rush of happy hormones and increase their joy.

When we think of a "hero" we might think of someone in a cape who's saving civilians from terror. Or maybe we think of the essential workers we've called heroes throughout the pandemic.

Heroism is simply defined as "great bravery," according to Oxford Languages.

If being a hero is about showing courage, bravery and strength, heroic feats happen all around us every day with ordinary people.

They say good things come in small packages—as a lifelong member of the "Never hit 5 feet tall" club it's a phrase I've had thrown at me often.

It's right up there with "small but mighty" and "people mcnugget."

It's popular because there's a fair bit of truth to it, though.

When it comes to some things, smaller is just flat out better.

Everyone has their "type" when it comes to sexual attraction.

It could be a woman's scent, a man's fashion sense, or a confident attitude that really gets a heart fluttering at 100 m.p.h.
However, what someone thinks is "hot" or "sexy" may be a total turn-off for others.
