Coming across cemeteries may bring on a wave of grief, sadness, or other unpleasant feelings. But thanks to some jokesters, it doesn’t always have to be a sad occasion.

While most people are laid to rest with granite or concrete headstones honoring their lives and loved ones, some people decide to take a humorous route with what will be engraved.

No one really wants to think about dying or planning their funeral arrangements, but there are some who don’t look at death in a negative way. Instead, they keep their funny bone all the way to the end.

There are quite a few people who thought long and hard about what they wanted to be written on their tombstones, and the results are absolutely hilarious.

In doing so, relatives and friends who visit to pay tribute to their loved ones may just be able to crack a smile instead of crying.

Keep scrolling to see these funny tombstones, and don’t forget to SHARE.
