Crems on wheels

The handsome chariot pictured above is a mobile crematorium. It is reckoned to have been developed for FEMA in case of disaster.

Would it not serve just as well for scattered rural populations in Wales and Scotland?

Bloomin’ materialists!

Where’s the parallel commitment to emergency ritualists?

Despite the risk of disease and dismay, would it not have been preferable to bury the Belsen dead with ceremony rather than simply with bulldozers?

I like the suggestion, Kathryn – a sort of dicky seat for the attached ritualist?

Looks like something designed for swift air-carriage for victims of ebola or other such fatal conditions…. you take the crem to the victim, not t’other way round!

Much in what you say, Vale. A travelling shaman.

Mountains to Mohammed.co.uk, innit?

Would a mobile cryomator be an ice crem van?

Only if it recycled its clients as ice cream, Jonathan. But… if it used its cold to keep ice cream on ice, that would be altogether different. In the same way that the mobile cremator could re-use its heat… Sorry, I’m stopping there.

Just as well to stop there, old boy, it reads ‘crem’, not ‘cream’ – should have gone to Specsavers! But I love the thought of serving ice cream after the funeral at cryomatoria that’s made of dead bodies. Then we could worry, ‘do you get the right icecreamains?’

Gosh, going blind. Faculties shutting down left and right. Glad to have been a midwife to another corking pun.

I don’t think those two gas bottles at the front will last long?
