Obviously Part 2

Oh, really?  There's a coffin here?  Thanks for the heads up.

See Part 1 here.

That is one stuffed grave.

James Harold got the worst end of the deal - I think his dates are the 1909 - 1973, oops, 1970.

Possible Wreck

This one is up for debate.  I say the hands are backwards, therefore, wreck.  Jason says the hands are tilted, therefore, normal.

The Finish Line

I bet all of his "new friends" had coolers full of beer and a satellite dish tuned to Nascar.  Check out the sponsor included on the car - seems strange to me that only one made it on there.  I mean, have you seen how much crap they plaster all over those cars*?

Also, I really want to switch those stones around to say "love always".   Personal choice.

*I haven't.

Eternity (?)

I'm hoping someone out there can explain this one to me.

Is this some sort of obscure Battlestargate Treklactica* reference?

*If you understand this, you're a nerd.  Just saying.

Sticky Situation

It's as though someone turned a scrapbook page* into a tombstone.

*A bad one.

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Oh Lord

I kind of thought it would be fancier.

Maybe some neon lights. And a McDonald's.

Take Two

Okay, folks. I posted this wreck on Thursday and got yelled at. A lot. So I removed it.

But I like it. So it's back. Enjoy. (Or not).

Not Quite Right

I love the mystery of this wreck.

Did they mean "not quite centered" literally?
Or did they want something not quite centered on the stone?

Also the flair is fantastic. We have timeless birds paired with a 1990s computer on a 2007 headstone, plus luggage bound for heaven*.

*Despite paying the extra bag fees, it will no doubt be rerouted to Duluth.

Handle with care.

(I know we don't normally do funny names, but this one cracked me up. HA!)

More "Nicknames"

"Pooky" is definitely my favorite. Mostly because it's used in the movie Caddyshack*.

*It's in the boat scene. Shame on you for not knowing that.

Country Goodness

Saddle up, pardner*! This here is one rootin' tootin' fine** tombstone!

*Also partner.

**Except for the giant pickle sticking out from under the hat.

Ooh pretty

Occasionally here on Tomb Wrecks we like to feature "good" tombstones. We do see numerous tree trunk stones (Woodmen of the World), but this one is rather unique.

Is that enough nicey nice? Good. Because tomorrow it's back to bashing headstones (um, figuratively, of course).

I Want Music Notes!

Apparently they're like sprinkles*.

*This is a Cake Wrecks reference. If you don't get it, please go here immediately.

If a buddy tells you he can make you a great deal on a set of tombstones, please politely decline.

The funny thing is that these are all neighbors in the cemetery.

Oh Baby

Folks, this tombstone is ginormous. Like so big I'm pretty confident I could park my car on it.

And what's with the exceptional detail? No name, no flowers, no flair, just vast amounts of concrete.

Perhaps this is for a baby elephant. Perhaps someone mixed up way too much concrete and didn't want it to go to waste. Perhaps that tree is going to eventually win this battle.

Pardon the Interruption

I apologize for the delay in wreck posting. There was an issue with Blogger and I couldn't get in to create additional wrecky goodness. Please accept this bonus photo as my gift to you all.

Jason and I were tomb hunting a few weeks back and as we strolled through the cemetery, I couldn't shake the feeling that we were being watched. I looked up across the fence and to my delight, I laid my eyes upon this:
I guess he really is always watching. Somehow I thought he'd be taller.

He's Outta Here

I think this is the equivalent to pointing to the stands when you're at bat in baseball, except this guy is calling "heaven" instead of "home run".

A Classic Returns

A+. A man with a sense of humor and a taste for tacky motorcycle flair.

It's even better than the last one.

Good (Period).

Or, "This is a dead man".

I like that there's no period. It leaves it open, like someone might come in later and add things to that statement...

"This is a good man, but one time he ate all of the cereal and then left the empty box in the cupboard."

Here it is folks, after all that tomb hunting over the long weekend, I'm sharing the first featured reader submission wreck. That's right, after finding a boat load of wrecky goodness, I've chosen to not share any of them today. Some may call me lazy, others may call me stupid; I call this wreck fantastic.

Thanks to Ryan R., a man who does not need killing.
