…Have you ever wondered how is your tombstone message going to look like?
Whether we like it or not, we can’t live forever. We only have one life, and just as many inspirational quotes say, we have to make the best of it, because it’s short.
Given the fact that everyone is born and everyone dies at one point, we can say that the things that happen in the middle are the only things that make us different and unique.
I don’t know about you, but there are many people out there who are all about immortality. They want people to know who they were and what their beliefs were.
With that being said, they take advantage of their tombstones and they chose to say one last thing to the whole world.
Given the fact that someone’s entire existence can be reduced to only two dates and a name, it’s no wonder that cemeteries can be seen as one of the most gloomy places ever.
I don’t want to upset you, but I want to show you that there were some people who decided to say goodbye by leaving some uncommon messages that give us a hint about who they were.
Without further ado, here are the 10 funniest tombstone messages!

Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA is the home to many famous people but while going through one day I saw a tombstone in this very historical place that read, “ I told them my foot was killing me.” I kid you not.
There is one in the cemetery in WInterset, Iowa that says, ‘I told you guys I wasn’t feeling well.’
The truth is he wanted “There goes the F%$^ing neighborhood” but they wouldn’t let him.

Here are the Five Rules for Men to Follow for a Happy Life that Russell J. Larsen had inscribed on his headstone in Logan , Utah.
He died not knowing that he would win the ‘Coolest Headstone’ contest.FIVE RULES FOR MEN TO FOLLOW FOR A HAPPY LIFE:
1. It’s important to have a woman who helps at home, cooks from time to time, cleans up, and has a job.
2. It’s important to have a woman who can make you laugh.
3. It’s important to have a woman who you can trust, and doesn’t lie to you.
4. It’s important to have a woman who is good in bed, and likes to be with you.
5. It’s very, very important that these four women do not know each other or you could end up dead like me.
Must be a large headstone or, very small font!
There are many funny ones in the Boot Hill Cemetery near Tucson. My favorite is:
Here lies (don’t remember the name), hanged by mistake
He was right and
We was wrong
But we strung him up
And now he’s gone.
He was accused of cattle rustling but was innocent.
One I liked was,
Here lies Ezekiel Aikle
This is in Nova Scotia
Another for Lord Castlereagh who was disliked and Foreign Secretary and Leader of the House of Commons,
Posterity will ne’er survey
A nobler grave than this.
Here lie the bones Castlereagh
Stop, traveler, and piss.
I think that is about what others promised Trump if he did not honor Senator McCain by lowering the flag to half staff.
On Oberlin, Ohio, there is the grave of Peter Pindar Pease. “Old Pete isn’t here, it’s only his pod; He’s shelled out his peas and gone to his God.”

Palm coast fl. A lady at our church has “what are you saving it for” on her columbarium marker (headstone)
On the steps leading to a grave in Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY, these words were written. “I know that I am going to heaven, because I just lived thru Hell”…
With the very best of intentions, the family of a woman who was a wonderful seamstress had this epitaph engraved on her tombstone: “Sewer of Dreams”. It didn’t dawn on them that “sewer” could be interpreted two ways until they saw engraved—too late!
One of the funniest l have ever heard:
Oh stranger as you’re passing by
As you are now so once was l
As l am now soon you will be
Prepare for death and follow me
BUT – the stranger stopped, read, and answered
To follow you I’m not content
Until l know which way you went
I like “There are fates worse than Death” Or “There is No Death” ??from Longfellows poem
RIP Noah Scape 1829 – 1880
Always felt trapped.
My father always joked that on his marker it should read “Shot by a jealous husband…”
