That talking tombstone is a shocker. Who in their right mind would buy something like that?

Talking tombstone is perfect for the Don Rickles-like old crab. Have a huge red button labeled "GO AHEAD, PUSH MY BUTTON" then once pressed, the deceases unloads all sort of insults at the visitor. "Your ugly and your mother dresses you funny!" "Next time, wear a skirt." "Stop stepping on me."

By the way, Gene Simmons once licensed a KISS Kasket that doubles as a cooler until you need it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KISS_Kasket
