I seriously predicted this nearly ten years ago

Costco, too.
Walmart doing funerals.
I've believed for years that the funeral industry was ripe for someone to come in and compete. The massively expensive strangle hold they have on a family, during a terrible time of loss is terrible.
I feel a little bit psychic today. :)
Long overdue.

I think that it is a great idea, but I didn't see any plain pine boxes.....

I thought the saem thin, Suzan. I want Walmart to give me a truly CHEAP option. Something a kid might build in woodshop in highschool.

In fact....hold the phone...birth of an idea here.....

Prisoners can build untreated pine wood boxes....$199. Woodworking is a marketable skill. The prisoners win, the state pen wins, we win.

Everybody wins. :)

Wait, let's copyright a do-it-yourself embalming kit, like the Dryell kit save you a trip to the dry cleaners, this idea would save that expensive mortician fee.

Mary Connealy said...

You mean we have to put dead bodies in the dryer with...whatever you've invented Cheryl?

Well, maybe a high capacity dryer would work.

Patent it quick and we'll get the details figured out later. :)
