I think of funerals as a final chance for a big surprise to wow people! How do you want your funeral to go? Because you can't spell funeral without fun!

#1

Okay, so, GIANT KAHOOT about my life, whoever wins gets everything I haven't left to anyone, and the loser has to make a speech about how much of an amazing person I was while being recorded. (for the laughs, of course) And then while my coffin is being lowered into the ground, stayin alive starts playing. It will also include a gigantic food fight in my honor.

Near the end of my funeral, i want all the music to cut out. Then i want the crank on my coffin to turn slowly, while Pop goes the weasel plays getting faster so the people attending my funeral to get on edge awaiting something terrifying, and when the song is done, i want my corpse to jump out. Making everybody scream!

I told my wife to do whatever brings her solace without breaking the bank. However, I'd like to end on an up note, and I'm torn between a drag performance and a pie fight.

I want a budget friendly and low key funeral. Instead of people buying flowers I would rather they donate the money to a charity of their choice or keep the money themselves. Depending on cost I would like be cremated by water (aquamation) which is more environmentally friendly. But it is still new to Australia so could be costly, otherwise I will just go for regular cremation and my partner or kids can do whatever they want with my ashes. I won’t care, I will be dead lol.

A friend of mine plans to wait until he's on the brink of death, rent a self-driving Tesla with all his remaining money, and then crawl into the backseat and die while the car drives around the city with his rotting corpse until his money runs out and he reaches his destination as a pile of fetid remains.
He's kind of a bastard that way.

I have 2 plans
1. Open caskest and be buried next to my dad if he passes before me, also if I'm married by then I want to be buried in my wedding grown.
2. Be cremated and some of my ashes spread in places I love, like black mountain in ramona ca or at a waterfall in the desert, and in places my ancestors were from(Ireland, there's a castle with my same last name there, Scotland, Belgium, and Switzerland. If there's any left I want it to be buried next to my dad(if he is passed before me).
Either way ill have some sort of memorial or funeral and there will be music I grew up with(mostly celtic folk and sea shanties) and some others. I want it to celebrate what I loved and how I lived, not mourning my death

#25

Winter woods, vintage globe string lights in the trees, sunset. Black tie event. Dark, bloodred carpet. Candles everywhere. My video will plays with Sleeping At Last's Saturn in the background. Hot cocoa and brandy is served. A celtic band plays. Everyone releases lanterns into the sky. Four sexy pallbearers in vests and bowties carry my coffin to the sea. Enya says old pagan blessing in Gaelic over my body, naked except for a white cambric sheet and an assortnent of crystals, and I'm pushed off from shore. Flaming arrows are fired into my coffin-boat and as A Whiter Shade Of Pale blasts over speakers. My friends, family, and those I tricked into liking me watch my receding body burn into the dark horizon as I become one with the stars. Then everybody departs along a lane lit only by candles.

When I shuffle off this thing we call life, my partner has agreed to my wish that (once I'm definitely and irrevocably dead) and my closest friends and family have been informed and have had time to come and see my remains should they wish (possibly, in one or two cases to give me a prod, just to make sure) I get carted off to the crematorium without any ceremony, burnt to a crisp, then everyone is to congregate in a half way decent pub or hotel and have a few beers (or more) to talk bollocks and laugh about the stupid stuff I've done over my lifetime ...... with my ashes on the bar.

Still can't beat a funeral I went to years ago of a pub landlord who had insisted that he was propped up, in his open coffin in his best suit with a cigarette in his mouth and a whiskey in his hand (they used wire - don't ask), in the back bar of his pub. By the time of the burial, just across the road, everyone was drunk, he was dropped, twice on the way there, and the vicar had a fit of the giggles halfway through the interment ..... excellent day.
