Weird Gravestone Epitaphs

Weird Epitaphs

Dying is part of the human condition and many have taken an irreverent attitude towards death. Irish writer and wit, Oscar Wilde's last words are reputed to have been: "This wallpaper is killing me; one of us has got to go." And of course the wallpaper stayed.

Not content with simply an uttered last jab at death, some witty folks have devised some pretty weird epitaphs and gravestones. In some cases, the writer poked fun at themselves. In others, the survivors decided to make their low opinion of the deceased known for all time by writing a very unflattering epitaph.

This is a collection of weird epitaphs on gravestones from a number of New England cemetaries .
