THE MODEST URN: For Those Relatives You Don’t Want To Spend A Lot Of Money On

Death comes for all of us (unless of course the Methuselah Foundation is able to actually extend life) and with that prospect comes the need to put our affairs in order so that our family doesn’t have to deal with all the bullshit (or fight over who gets the Star Wars collectibles).

But being dead also costs a ton of money, and who wants to have to tap into the life insurance so that your slowly decaying body can rest on a bed of satin or be kept inside a fancy container that will eventually be put into a closet and forgotten.

For those of us who just don’t care about what happens to our bodies after we jump off this mortal coil, there’s the Modest Urn, a receptacle that will hold our burnt meat (and probably the remains of a few other people, it’s tough to clean ash out of the corners of the furnace let’s face it) but doesn’t make a big deal out of it.

The urn measures 5″ by 4″, comes with a bunch of stickers and a eulogy so that your family doesn’t have to come up with anything to honor your memory, and is modestly priced at $9.50, leaving your family with enough money to go on that vacation to Disney World that you always promised them but were too cheap to actually do.

See, being dead isn’t so bad now is it?

(There’s also an urn for pets…but just don’t get them mixed up…although that would be kind of funny)
