A new burial technique
I’m curious as to how cremation came about. It had to be right after the caveman caught on to the whole fire concept.
Maybe one night, late, after their celebrating killing a dinosaur or something, one of them, giddy from the day’s events and too much food, stumbled into the fire and burned to a crisp.
Or maybe, since no-one was smart enough back then to invent a shovel, they just threw their deceased into the fire.
I cooked some steaks on a barbecue grill one time, but got a little drunk and forgot them until the next morning. It was pretty cool actually. The steaks, filets, had shrunk to half their original size and upon throwing them up against the wall, they’d explode into powder.
I like this concept more than I do cremation.
Maybe some new-age funeral home many years from now will offer new and creative ways of disposing of a corpse other than a casket or standard cremation.
I’m hoping they might offer that steak thing. That’d be pretty cool to roast me overnight, stick me in a casket the next day, and right about the time a loved one places one of my favorite possessions on my corpse, something they think I would have wanted to be buried with, I poof into powder.
That’d actually be pretty funny.
Probably not so much for the guy or girl who caused me to disintegrate.
