“Going out with a bang”:
Two Alabama game wardens have devised a smoking send-off for avid hunters and gun enthusiasts: For a small fee, the pair will turn cremated ashes into ammunition that the deceased’s loved ones can fire at will.
“Costs start at $850.”
How dull. For my sendoff, I want Chuck Yeager to fly to the edge of space in an F-104 fighter to scatter my ashes into the sunrise like so much glittering confetti, while the Broadway cast of Hair sings “Good Morning, Starshine” and the U.S. Men’s Olympic Swim Team performs a water ballet commemorating my life, before drowning themselves in grief.
You know — something dignified.
