Crazy Coffins

Vic Fearn and Company have created some unusual coffins for their clientele, some of which may be seen on their oddly designed Crazy Coffins website.

The list includes kites, corkscrews, a ballet shoe, an electric guitar, a football boot, a sports bag and a replica of a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.
Among the other designs waiting for their owner is a wooden egg, commissioned by a woman in Wales who wants to be buried upright in the foetal position. [Link]


How inspiring! I especially like the coffin that looks like a croquet sports bag. Croquet is a cut-throat game, after all, and one popular version is called "Poison" where your ball "kills" other balls in play.



I agree—that was my favorite, too. As soon as the lawn dries out, we'll be getting the croquet set out of storage, and I'll be encouraging my younger nieces not to chase each other with stakes and mallets.
