A couple people at work tipped me off to a new product that CostCo is selling through its web site: caskets. Priced from $924.99 to $4,699.99, these caskets come in a variety of styles. The names are a little disconcerting—Michael ($1,499.99), Charles ($4,699.99), Mother ($924.99)—but at least they don’t have one with my name on it. For a while longer I can continue laboring under the illusion that I won’t die.
The best thing about these coffins, though, is that they’re in the Hardware & Outdoor Living section of the web site. How is that for unintended irony?
