    I am thinking that this woman has issues that Jail will not take care of. I also wonder how bad that beer was.

    The dude was buried with BEER & CIGARETTES! That cracks me up.

    For me it would have to be a very aged, fine Scotch and a good Cuban cigar.

    Who gets burried with beer an cigarrettes? Not that I encourage grave looting... but that's just ridiculous.

    It would have been easier to get the beer and cigs from the 7-11.

    Burial? Psh. I want to be set aflame on a raft pushed out to sea. There will be no beer. There will be no cigarettes. There WILL be hot, sacrificial bitches, yo.

    And wine.

    This sounds like some redneck joke. Lived with a woman while both were married to other people. Died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Buried with beer and cigarettes. Remains dug up by ex-lover to spite family. Come on.

    Having attended quite a few military funerals (played bugle in the VFW color guard for a couple years), I can tell you the practice of being buried with beer and/or cigarettes is common. The idea isn't really so strange if you think about it - the practice of burying the deceased with their personal effects, or even items intended for the afterlife, is one of the oldest earmarks of civilization. We're talking fire pits, stone tools and ritual burials here.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    We buried my grandfather who was in WWII with a few bottles of wine that he made each year, a 6-pack of Bud (which he drove a beer truck for), and a pack of camel cigarettes.

    So it's not that ridiculous Skel....
