Get Your Free XXL Coffin

Saw this in the local Craigslist free section today:
XXL Coffin

I purchased this casket from Costco several years back, it fit great then, but I swear those twinkies ain't losing any calories, so neither am I. Now the darned thing won't fit anymore. I didn't get the expanded warranty and now they won't exchange it. Oh well, my gain your....gain.

So I guess this guy buys a coffin, puts it in his basement, and goes down there every once in a while to check that it still fits.

Those coffins are special order and sometimes they are on back order so he probably wanted to be sure he was ready .The reason I know this is because my Dad was a really tall & big guy and we had to delay his funeral for a few days while they located a casket !

My dad was a big guy too. Luckily, the funeral home that handled the arrangements didn't have trouble fitting him into a casket.
I purr therefore I am.

Hey, keep that ad!!! If I eat another huge Rueben and a praline like I did today, I might be needing it myself.
