The Many Advantages Of A $US400k Phone-Equipped Gold Coffin

At first blush, you might look at this $US381,000 gold coffin that comes with a mobile phone and think: what a hopelessly tacky waste of money. You'd be so wrong. Here's just a few benefits:

• Get back at ne'er-do-well next of kin by blowing $US381,000 of their inheritance money on a coffin.

• Make outgoing calls in case of accidental burial.

• Gold gives your pallbearers a much better workout than mahogany, or a pile of ashes.

• GPS-equipped phone makes tracking down grave robbers a cinch.

• Be the envy of your fellow undead during the inevitable zombie uprising.

See? Now don't everyone rush out to get one. I'm sure there are plenty enough to go around. [France24 via Born Rich]
