What a way to go!
« on: March 29, 2012, 04:54:18 PM »
A coffin for bacon lovers.



Should this be the subject of a group buy for APS members concerned about the (hopefully) distant future?

Would it be wrong of me to say that these should be used for any Gitmo detainees that happen to expire?

Yes, because a very large number of Gitmo detainees are released without any charges. Some of our allies are (gasp) not great folks and often sell us some random guy to get paid.

Basically, it wouldn't be wrong, as long as you wouldn't mind if I bashed you over the head, sold you to DurkaDurkaStan, said you were an evil filthy terrorist or enemy combatant or telemarketer, collected a nice bounty while you tried telling the DurkaDurkaStani soldiers (in English, which they don't speak) that you're certainly not a telemarketer, and you got buried in ... I dunno, a Hi Point themed casket.

Detained != guilty of squat.

What about released detainees we catch later on because they're attacking us again? Can I put those in a bacon coffin?

Wrong. The detainees at Gitmo were all rounded up by Halliburton squads, who simply snatch any Muslim or brown-skinned person they see. They are never released; simply held indefinitely without charges. Plus, we burn their Korans.

Wow, those guys must be real lazy.  I see more of those people around Houston than they have in Gitmo, must less overseas.   =D

They're crafty - they've learned that the best way to avoid being picked up is to pretend they only speak Spanish.

I want my corpse to be saponified with lye.

And then have the resulting slurry be explosively distributed over the next/nearest congregation of leftists by a cold-gas bursting charge.
I promise not to duck.

No problem. Except "cold gas" might unfortunately be "insanely hot gas". And "leftists" might unfortunately be "hippies".

Crop duster would be more dramatic....

Would you settle for being mixed into water and shot out of a firehouse at hippies during a Occupy Whatever event?

If the main plan can't be realized. These are all relatively acceptable alternatives.

Although I've been thinking along the lines of making the whole thing more "personal". Each of my heirs get a photo and dossier of an intended target, a water balloon filled with my rendered remains, and the must successfully pelt and soak the target to inherit.
