Fred the Baker Rip

In this vault are a few crumbs of crusty old Fred
He got stuck in an oven and got baked with the bread
A very popular man, his friends didn't think twice 
When offered a keepsake, their very own slice.

Here lie a dentist and his wife.
Long in the tooth they left this life.

Two gold crowns and a dental drill!

Makes one wonder how she's handling claustrophobia

Before there was a thing called "Man"

The Maker had a better plan.

He filled he sea with little fish

Of every kind that He might wish.

Then He made the dinosaur

To rule the land from shore to shore.

Next came the monks, orang-otan.

Gorillas, and an ape called "Man".

Man is half God, and beast one half.

He writes his own grim epitaph.

The Maker thinks, "Next time the plants?

Not yet, until I've tried the ants".

Unlucky Jim

Beneath lie the remains of unlucky Jim
A great white shark made a meal of him
Fell off his surf board and hit by a wave
Half inside ‘Jaws’ and half in this grave.

Here lies the remains of the great Lucille Ball
The best fiery redhead comedian of them all
Even after she kicked drunk Desi Arnez to the curb
Her vitameatavegamin TV episode was superb

Andrew John Greenwidge Rip

Buried deep in this vault is Andrew John Greenwidge
Fell into and drowned in a giant tank of raw sewage
The mourners to his funeral brought bunches of roses 
And throughout the service held tightly their noses .

Epitaph of a Run-Away Bride

Here lies a woman of hedonist fame,
her Je ne sais quoi had no restrain.
Any man who proposed
found her not so disposed
and never could find her again!

Machiavelli  s'been stewing 
teardrops in the Soup

Stooping to new lows 
stirring chickens in the coop

Seems some folks will do anything 
for what they think is fame
Swiss cheese stories for glory
Lordy! Whaddah' shame!

Reminds me of two classic movies...
"Freddie Lives" and the other is 
"The Crying Game"...
but this one's very unbelievable, it ain't scary,
and it's much
MUCH more lame!~

Here lies my wallet.
On my desk he sleeps.
His malnourished stomach’s
been empty for weeks.

No family survived him.
There is only me, 
With no way to pay off
his burial fee.

Bye May

Here Lays May
Who was on her way
To a little old bar,
She was hit by a car.
