People's last words stick with us for a long time, but memory fades and stone doesn't. Unless you get cremated, and your ashes end up in an ugly urn, your remains get a grave and a headstone, and together with it - the last opportunity for a funny epitaph to entertain those who drop by for a visit.

The people below were not famous for their life, but rather because of their undying sense of humor, engraved into their funny gravestones. From cute puns and dad jokes from the afterlife to warnings about the great beyond, these funny tombstones show that death is not always so serious.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of some of the funniest epitaphs on tombstones, proving that a sense of humor can live forever. From a delicious fudge recipe to an unapologetic joke about religion, these people are the non-living examples of the right attitude. Scroll down to check out the deadly funny gravestones!

Now if that tombstone only came with a hot plate and was on a hinge so you could lay it down, because I bet granite works as well as marble does, you could make a batch right there with Kay to guide you. Spiritually at least, she'd be there for you if you need her guidance.
