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!

Why would a gravestone say, "GRAVESTONE IN THURMONT, MD" on it? This is bullshit. If there really is such a gravestone, why not show it instead of this photoshopped one?

Sad, not funny. Sad that his/her soul is not going to heaven. :(

DancingToMyself

And how would you know what her's soul is capable to do?! Your arguments are similar to kid's arguments about Santa - is he real? Sure, honey, of course he's real. Nothing would bother me if you (majority of religious people) are polite and peaceful with your religion. But, nooo. The majority are keyboard warriors, their faithful is very much questionable, but all of them has strong opinions about everything what is "written in Bible". Which comes very convenient for almost every situation in life. So you're not even capable to decide if this is funny or "sad" (yeah, right), because you are one of those types of religious people who aren't showing any respect for non-religious people. You bullying others with your beliefs, and that actually IS sad. :(
