Holiday Wrecks

You have spoken. It is so.

Starting next week, Tomb Wrecks turns festive with wrecky holiday light displays!

I will be on the hunt this weekend for xmas wrecks, and I am confident I will find plenty to keep us amused throughout the holiday season. Of course I encourage your submissions*, and I suspect I'll be posting multiple photos each day to keep up.

Happy hunting and Merry Festivus!

*Also please keep sending tombstones. :)

Those Pesky Indians

Wow, Donna V., talk about politically incorrect!

Holiday Magic

Greetings, wreck fans! Thanksgiving break was awesome, but now it's back to business... or is it? I've been toying with an idea for Tomb Wrecks for the holidays. How would you feel about a few weeks of xmas decor wrecks*? Can you live for 3 weeks without tombstones? Comment and let me know.

Here's a wreck from Lindsay W. - it appears she had it gift wrapped for us.

*How fun will it be to hunt for bad/tacky/outrageous xmas light and decor displays!?

Happy Turkey Day!

May you all have a magical french horn that blows out wishes. I think I'll ask mine for extra gravy.

Thx, Jen!

This just in from WMD - Hypno-Jesus!

I'm convinced that when you stand in front of this grave, Jesus' eyes light up and spin and you hear a creepy sci-fi ray gun sound.

Double Take

We've seen bingo flair before, but this woman was obviously serious about her bingo. So serious, apparently, that one bingo card flair just wasn't enough.

Thanks, Megan, you hit the jackpot.

Jesus Rocks

Valentine sent us this rockin' Jesus wreck, and all I could think about was Superstar. Not the Jesus Christ one, the Mary Katherine Gallagher one:

When the Bough Breaks

Nothing says rest in peace like a dangerous cliff and a broken* dead tree.

Great job, WMD! You get the award for most depressing flair EVER.

*No wonder that tree broke - the top part is strangely wider than the rest of the trunk.

I think you meant cardinal.

Thanks, Amy G. - maybe the flair guy had the bird flu.

Doggone It

Except that I won't see you in the morning.

Jen, this is the weirdest pet/person combo I have ever seen. Bravo.

Happy Veterans Day

Valentine sent us this awesome photo and we agreed that it looked very Veteran-y and therefore appropriate for today.

Oh, but there's more! J.K. Rowling fans, brace yourselves, and then check out the name on the grave.

For Your Eyes

This gentleman's last name is not Only. His last name appears below on the marker.

I'm suspicious. Either Edward didn't want an Anita - Craig situation, or someone else is buried here with Edward.

"What should this stone say?"
(shifts nervously) "It's Edward ONLY! I swear!"

Jen, perhaps you've found Hoffa.

Good Riddance

I think this tombstone needs a facelift. And a boob job. And its ears pinned back.

Thanks for the good news, Megan F!

Runs with Paintbrush


*I'm an art student, so I'm partial to the artsy folk.

Courtney A., I heart this one. Thanks for sending.

Big Fun

Ah, the holiday season is upon us. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and we all dream of pies and cookies and drowning a plate full of food in gravy...

Don't worry everyone - there's always those New Year's resolutions that involve treadmills and spin classes that will fix everything, right Jen?

Rock On

Anything you can do I can do better. Well, bigger, anyway.

You rock, Jen.

I do... not.

"Till death do us part" I guess.

Jen, thanks for showing us that photos on tombstones are never a good idea.

Yes, THE woman. My favorite part is that she's not dead yet - so she designed this herself. Of course. She's the woman.

Courtney A, today you're THE fan.

Do You Believe

Allow me to share that this marker belongs to a man. This girly, eye-lashey unicorn is on a 44-year-old man's tombstone.

That would explain the expression on the unicorn's face.
"Yeah, I like unicorns. Big whoop. Wanna fight about it?"

Thanks, Stephen F. - maybe now you can find us a troll or a yeti.
