Whether your life has been devoted to charity, debauchery or a fantasized existence within your video game, the inscription on your tombstone will say something uniquely different about how you choose to be remembered.
Plan ahead and be prepared. While the thought of pre-planning is morbidly uncomfortable for some, make the most of November 2 and use Plan Your Epitaph Day to conjure your lasting words.
Some of the most memorable epitaphs are those injected with humor. They give visitors license to chuckle in an otherwise somber environment.
Consider borrowing a funny quote and applying it to a notable moment or achievement. Poking fun at yourself will leave an eternal impression.
Have a flair for the written word?
Compose your own verse to decompose by. Six lines of prose laced with hilarity will be the ultimate farewell and will tickle the funny bones of those who pause at your grave site.
Humorous epitaphs poke fun at transgressions of the deceased or mock the cause of their demise and are requested, posthumously, by family members. So take control of your own memorial. If you don’t, someone else will.
Contemplating one’s immortality can be disturbing, but lighten up. Gather with friends and drink up on Plan Your Epitaph Day. After a few rounds you’re sure to come up with words to die for.
