Man shows up at his OWN funeral - November 8th 2009, 12:19 PM

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're having a groovy day!!

A man 'dies'. His body is identified by friends and relatives.

That 'dead man' ends up going to his OWN funeral.

Thats awful!!
First off, the poor family of the guy. They'd probably been mourning for him and I can't imagine the pain they were going through, then he turned up?!
Secondly: Surely they'd realise that wasn't him? I know people's bodies can be quite horribly deformed in a car accident but surely they'd use DNA to identify him if the family weren't sure?

OMG that's awful I feel sorry for his friends/family. I agree with Tegan, you'd think they'd at least check if it was his body o_____O

I agree completely

I'm sure I read somewhere that people who were seriously ill and knew when they were going to die got to have their funeral before they died so they could go to it...bit odd though..

And I don't understand at all how you could NOT know your son.
What about the poor guy who really died?

I'll agree that's pretty awful, but I think I agree more than I totally want to do that!
Show up at my own funeral... I'd be priceless. To see who actually shows up, who's crying, who's laughing, then to just say "HEY WHERES so and so" and have everyone freak out.
lol Ah I'm evil.



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

That was actually pretty funny, except for the thought: how badly must the body have been messed up for people to wrongly identify him? Then again, if they thought it was him, grief might have convinced them.

Re: Man shows up at his OWN funeral - November 9th 2009, 07:09 PM

See, I'd probably try to be as dramatic as possible. Maybe wear a hoody with a long coat, something that will hide my features, and then walk up to the body and dramatically cast away the coat and shout something like
"I have risen from the cold embrace of the grave to slake my undead thrist up thoust mortal souls, mwhahahaha" and then have someone who's in on it to youtube the amount of people kacking themselves xD.

Bwhahaha xD

Re: Man shows up at his OWN funeral - November 10th 2009, 07:09 PM

I'd sneak up behind someone who didn't seem at all bothered by my death, and 'haunt' them. Like, whisper in their ear, appear then disappear, and so on. I'd do it to a few at most but not everyone or they'd catch on. Though I might get caught. oh well.
I like the dramic entrance idea too.

Or just casually walk in and say "So God says hi, he and Satan were playing poker together. Jesus wants to know why everyone is so rude and unethical after he died for you?"
Or something along the lines of that. lol (sorry to any over-sensitive Christians/religious people of any sort. I tend to make jokes. get over it. I could have easily done worse there. lol)



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

That's actually extremely funny.

Jumping out windows?

I saw this on Yahoo. They said he was really badly disfigured so his family didn't spend long looking and made the identification based on the similar clothing the guy was wearing to that the man had been wearing.
Much as I feel sorry for them for grieving and not needing to, at least it was short lived and they still have him around

I wonder how the guy feels knowing that his own family didn't recognize him! Also, what about the family of the person who died? They inquire about their missing son only to be informed that he has died and is being baried by the wrong people under the wrong name! How disrespectful would that have been? I guess it's a good thing they realized it when they did though.

Kind of disturbing for everyone though :/ Family should be grateful that in effect they CAN says all those things they meant to say to him...

'eh? How can you not recognise your own family member? I mean, I know that some crashes can leave people badly recognisable but you think they'd be able to do something to check that this guy was in fact their family member. But I'd hate to be mourning them when they suddenly walked in, you'd receive the shock of your life then.
