The Good Funeral Guide Blog

Hippie trippie

Tuesday, 1 February 2011

I hope I am acknowledged to be a generous source of great business ideas. From time to time I come up with a corker and then, in a spirit either of magnanimity or downright sloth, offer it gratis to loyal readers of this blog.

The idea pictured above is just another such generous offer. First option goes to Clare and Michelle at Volkswagen Funerals. Second option goes to the high-revvin Paul ‘Faster Pastor’ Sinclair at Motorcycle Funerals. After that it’s anybody’s — yours if you fancy it.

If it does good, a bung this way would not be out of order neither would it offend me in the least.

    A matchig V-dub coffin that DRIVES down a ramp out of the back of a V-dub hearse and up the aisle – now that would be a winner. It would solve the problem of having to pay bearers, too.

    No bung whatever, GM. My middle name is Altruist. I’m not sure that I’m entirely comfortable about you spilling secrets of your rackety past on this blog. No, on second thoughts I find myself wholly charmed and delighted! (I once had a Mog splittie. You could see the road race by through the holes in the floor.)

    H’m. How big was the bung?
    As an ex-hippie splittie-owner in 1970, I like the idea….

    Okay, that’s it, folks, offer closed. Clare has run with it. Look out for her at a crem near you soon!

    Hey now there’s an idea funeral transport for the lover of scootering, or for 60’s / 70’s Mods.

    I tell you what a coffin in the shape of a splittie would go down very well with the V Dub community, I’m going down the shed to draw up some plans.
    Thanks Charles I owe you a pint!

    Jason (the man on the bike) could have worn a matching helmet.
