Drive-Thru Mortuary

Drive-by open-casket viewings premiered in Pensacola, Florida, 30 years ago, but have only recently become a national trend.


I haven’t been to one (and don’t plan to), but I imagine it’s something like: 

“Hi, and welcome to McDeath. We put the fun in funerals!

“Right, uh, I’d like to see my cousin Ernie.”

“I’m sorry, he was cremated.”

“Oh, well, can I see the ashes?”

“Sure. Would you like fries with that?”

  1. An insightful commentary on the value our world places on life and relationships. Am reminded of the contrasting view that goes like this, “Greater love has no man than that he lay down his life for his friends.”

  5. I recently saw one of these on a TV show. Never knew about these. Their windows in the drice thru were bullet proof. Bad area of town. Insane! I like your sense of humor though 😂

  8. For those who can’t make it to the drive thru is there delivery? Will drones fly by your house or work so you can pay your respects without leaving the comfort of your current location?

  9. Okay, because I have a demented sense of humor this is a little bit funny, but also super messed up.
