Now I'm really intrigued! "Don't be ripped off by the Grim Reaper"...Doesn't He offer the same deal to everyone? Freedom from the flesh, transportation to the afterlife, etc? Supposing He has first and second class seating? What if you don't get your complimentary bag of peanuts? Where do you lodge your complaints?

These intense questions should be pondered at length...:lickout:...of course, I didn't say WHAT length...

Silly mundaners... :jump:

Ah yes..."Over The Hill" merchandise......we used to sell it @ the Hallmark I work in.  I picked up a few black roses......I also have a cake topper of Azrael standing behind a gravestone with His scythe in skeletal hand pointing to the sign on the stone saying, " I'm only here for the cake."  THAT piece I got @ ebay.  Over The Hill stuff is all done in black.  Funny line of stuff.

Love,

Death is one of those unique experiences that can only be experienced once. Do not take it lightly (if you do then j00 5uck!!! ;) )

NEWSFLASH !!!!! ¬†I just read in my Funeral Directors magazine that Hallmark sells a line of "funeral stationery" ....¬†I feel better to say I work for Hallmark now. ¬†Kinda proud of those guys. ¬†I told my boss and he was shocked. ¬†Just thought that might be of interest to you. ¬†I myself am THRILLED !!!! ¬†I know I know I'm a french fry short of a Happy Meal.  ;)

Love,

Hey, Darky, can *anyone* buy the stationery?  Or just those 'in the industry'?   I remember in the 'old days' that white paper with a black border was used for funerary correspondence, is this along the same lines?

:asthanos:  <---  i'll send birthday cards written on it!

I saw a birthday card the other day with a Reaper holding a cake loaded with lit candles. The message read: You cannot run, nor can you hide. Haw! :laugh: I also saw, in a photography magazine, a fashionably tricked-out woman lifting another out of a fashionably tricked-out coffin, apparently to kiss her....hmmm. I bet they used it for a perfume ad. And here's one guaranteed to date me--anyone remember the ad for the "Vampire Gimlet" from the '70s? It had a proto-Goth woman at a window, and the header ran, "Hurry Sundown." :hippy:

down the darker and darker stairs where blue is darkened on blueness
even where Persephone goes, just now, from the frosted September
to the sightless realm where darkness was awake upon the dark

I can't get enough of death.
I love the obituaries they always seem to get my attention

The only reason I read the Obits is because I always seem to find some of the people who pissed me off when I was in Elementary School.
Then I just laugh about it.
