2. “There goes the neighborhood” aka the cemetery 

Rodney Dangerfield was born on November 22nd, 1921 and he was an American producer, screenwriter, actor, stand-up comedian, musician, and author.

As an actor, he is best known for his role as Al Czervik in the movie called “Caddyshack”. Given the fact that during his life his career was very big and popular, his stand-up fans know him for starting many of his numbers by saying “I don’t get no respect”.

This is considered to be one of his best quotes, which made a lot of people laugh out loud.

He was very appreciated for his sense of humor, so he couldn’t leave the world on October 5th, 2004, without leaving a funny tombstone message behind: “There goes the neighborhood”.

…We can say that he was devoted to his self-deprecating style until his last day and beyond!

  1. 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.

    1. My favorite!
      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!

  2. 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.

  3. One I liked was,
    Here lies Ezekiel Aikle
    Age 102
    The good
    Die young
    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.

  4. 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.”
