This is different kind of Lay Away program!

I posted this in my yahoo 360 Blog, which I haven't been using, so decided to put it here.

Look Closely: I just want to know, who would put a tombstone on lay away. Just thinking about the words "Lay Away" gives me the creeps. Are they gonna "Lay Away" my body as well if I ever died and No one could afford my tombstone. "Here lays Charles, he couldn't afford his tombstone so we had to put his body in a freezer and use it as collateral" I can only imagine what the future will hold, maybe they'll cremate people and place there ashes inside of the tombstones and place them in grave yards. Am I getting carried away? Can you say Futurerama!

Hmm I've never thought about such a thing "lay away"
Now, no lay aways for you. I expect you'll get a nice big temple built in your honor!

I promised I would never go there... but this one has prompted me to go there.

I have seen a case - a for real, honest-to-deity lawsuit - where a guy was sued because he quit paying off his mother's funeral and burial. No kidding. At first I didn't believe it. I laughed and said, "What are they gonna do - dig her up and repo the casket?"

They put a lien on the guy's house and froze his bank accounts instead. Lay away, indeed.
