Have you ever run across a funny epitaph?

Asked by NomoreY_A (5498points) May 15th, 2017

Not being morbid, but have you ever seen something like, “I Told You I Was Sick”? Or, “RIP Three Finger Stan. Brought a knife to a gunfight, an ignorant man”

My Mom often said “I’m never making tacos again!” when she would get burned by popping grease. We considered making that her epitaph (she often joked it should be).

I don’t think it was actually used, but Dorothy Parker of the Algonquin Round Table fame wanted hers to say, “Pardon my dust.”

There is the old Western headstone:
“Here lies Lester Moore
Four slugs from a .44
No less,
No more.”

Here lies Little Willie.
Little Willie was a chemist,
Little Willie is no more.
What Willie thought was H2O
Was really H2SO4!*

*H2SO4 = Sulfuric acid.

It was.
