Six feet under ...

So in the graveyard here, there's this tomb which looks a bit like a shed, except a grand shed. It was the benches that drew me to it first, made of marble with little plants all round. There's the family name and the list of people buried there on one side of the entrance, St Francis's poem on the other side. Everything looks totally normal...



Until you go round the back, and there's a satellite dish!



I just can't think what it's doing there. Maybe they were buried with a remote control so they could catch up on every episode of every sitcom they hadn't got round to watching. Or they're keeping a high-tech eye on living relatives. Or it's the only way they can get the grandkids to visit.

Presumably, you can't subscribe to any particular channel in the afterlife with payments being a bit tricky so you must be stuck with watching all the repeats on the free channels. Unless there is some special deal going ...I'm beginning to think about those ads for planning your own funeral in a totally new light!

This is fabulous! I'm assuming you're still in the great American midwest and found it there. Where else could it possibly be?
