Markets in Everything: Screw-in-the-Ground Casket

"Screwed" all the way to the end...

I suggest a self-tapping screw thread -- so that the two screwers don't work themselves into an early grave.

The intro for the Beverly Hillbillies came to mind.

That looks like more work than two people could do, but an attachment for a tractor would make quick work of this. It would also be much easier to exhume bodies than it is now

Loved ones at the grave side, instead of throwing a symbolic handful of dirt on the casket, could operate the tractor control to produce half a turn, or some equally appropriate gesture.

Oh , please, help me! After following the link and reading the whole article, I am, like Xavier, ROFLMAO. I keep bursting into fits of uncontrollable laughter.

From the article:

" A clear plastic Easy Inter Burial Container, where the body is additionally encased in clear resin and is standing erect for all to view during installation, creates a very impressive image. "

Yes, my last memory of my father is an image of him twirling himself rapidly into the ground.

The perfect coffin for a dishonest politician!

I've heard the saying "He's so crooked when he dies the undertaker could screw him into the ground".

And for handling these caskets, use a power utility truck with an auger drill to bore a pilot hole, then attach the casket to the drive (e.g. like a square-drive socket wrench) and spin it right into the ground.

Just think of the space this technology would save over the traditional horizontal casket.

But wait! There's more... you can top it off with a cylindrical monument that can double as a flower urn.

This is the kind of thinking that makes America the world's most innovative and properous nation.

Just in time for the Murtha interment and the perfect vessel for the political class!

One has to wonder if you can purchase it with thread-orientation to match your political values. Dems can have a wide selection of left-handed screw caskets.

And our Muslim friends can be oriented to face Mecca.
