Invest in Your Future…

….by pre-ordering your casket from Costco!

Not the burying type? Costco’s got urns! (My favorite: It’s a tie between the Ebony Love Urn and the Eternity Large Pet Keepsake Urn.)

And don’t forget: Mother’s Day is right around the corner!

Now what I'm I gonna do with the other nine? :(

Kill your relatives! Everyone's got a place to be dead!

I worked for's call center when the casket sales started. It turned out to be a fast and reliable program that generated almost no complaints, but just the same a few of us nearly needed caskets from stressing about the potential nightmare calls.

Does Costco put it on "lay-away" until the day its finally needed, or does one end up with an attractive, (albeit ominous and dark) coffee-table/conversation piece/guest bed for the next few years?
