Hey, let's start burying people in giant socks

Woolen coffins are the latest thing in deathwear.

I'd be happy with a pine box, or a nice cotton shroud. Heck, I wouldn't *care*, being dead and all.

All of this is just another way to fleece marks of their money.

JeffS, would that be old growth pine? That cotton better be fair trade, or "they" will....well, I don't know, but it won't be nice.

Paco, put me down for cashmere. Okay, a nice soft microfiber if the cashmere isn't available. I still get a choice of colors, right?

Choice of colour?
Certainly, although complaints will only be entertained at the time of burial. (Insert Congress complaint here.)

Heck, Deb, they can build my box out of old pallets, for all I care!

I'm ordering my box here:

Have always had a simpler view of Life, and if the National Cemetery here in Jax will have it, I think it's perfect.
