    How does it fit into the “Health & Wellness” category?

    @olisam: Maybe they mean for your corpse to look healthy? Pretty funny!

    @Crymson_77: I notice no reviews. Hrmmm….

    Say what? Steel casket? That’s going to smell pretty bad until the steel finally rusts away!

    I get it….these are leftover Halloween props. Right?

    The most troubling thing about this is the 1-6 week delivery.

    Assuming you were weird enough to buy a coffin on the internet, what do you do with the corpse for six weeks?

    So weird…where would you even store this, assuming this is a preemptive purchase??
    “Um, hey Jim, why is there a casket in your basement?”

    Hmmm, this post is a day late, methinks.

    I have never understand the desire to be buried in a metal casket. It makes me shudder, not to mention the crazy expense. Cremate me and use me for garden fertilizer! (after I’m dead, that is)

    only 18 gauge? i’ll pass.

    @Canadian Impostor: Most online coffin sellers guarantee overnight delivery.

    People used to buy or build their caskets well before their death and keep it in the barn or a back room that they later wall up and freak the hell out of later buyers, who then get their stories made semi-famous on If Walls Can Talk.

    @kantwait:
    I dunno, that’s not that odd to me. Of course that’s because my friend’s uncle, once he hit 70, started sleeping in his casket in the attic. Said he wanted to get used to it and they wouldn’t have to stuff him in if he died in his sleep.

    Jim always was on the strange side…
