Coffin Has Onboard Sound System

The Catacoffin is a $35,000 coffin that features a three-speaker sound system that is controlled by a touchscreen remote that is installed in your gravestone. I am guessing that the idea is that you create a playlist and visitors to your grave get to play you songs from it when they come to pay their respects.

I find this silly on so many levels that I don’t know where to begin. Let us, for the sake of brevity, entertain the foolish notion that a decomposing corpse is able to “listen” to the aforementioned music – would that not mean that they are also conscious of the fact that they are stuck in a coffin under six or more feet of earth? As awful as that sounds, can you imagine how much worse it would be to be stuck down there listening to the same music over and over again?

For some reason the immortal words of Walter Sobchak come to mind.

Look, just because we’re bereaved doesn’t make us saps!
