"Mom, when I die please prop me up in the corner, posed and dressed like an aloof douchebag."

His brother Carlos told the El Nuevo Dia newspaper the victim had long said he wanted to be upright for his own wake: “He wanted to be happy, standing.”

And at 24? Sounds like he knew he was going to die. Hey, sweet bling. Good riddance.

Can't help but notice the Yankees hat, (despite his attempt at camouflage) and must concur with Mr. Poe's glib farewell.

Wow, that is creepy.

I have kissed goodbye the lifeless bodies of my favorite uncle and my recently departed grandfather. It is not as scary as it sounds. Love is love.

If you go first, Schmader, I will totally give your corpse a farewell kiss.

Are animatronic corpses next?

I would ONLY want something strange like this for myself if I could also have a not so "I'm lying in a coffin" face as well. That part creeps me out.

Also, it doesnt look like he's having much fun. But yah, nice bling.

I'm sorry, but is that corpse grabbing its crotch?

Kerri, for me, forget the kiss. I would take it as a great compliment if you'd just take a bite out of me.

Mark, for you, of course. I already planned on nibbling on whatever finger that big ol' gold ring of yours is on....
