Mom's funeral "party"
 
Miriam "Mae Mae" Burbank's two daughters told WGNO in New Orleans that their mother was "full of life" and that they wanted her funeral to be just as lively. A "last party" if you will. So they convinced funeral directors to help stage her body with all of her favorite things: Busch beer, menthols, crossword puzzles, disco lights, and tiny New Orleans Saints helmets.

I want a celebration instead of a mourning session, but I don't need to be present! Holy crap, that's creepy!

It's New Orleans. Funerals are a bit different there.

How did they bend her enough to sit with rigamortis.

Rigor dissipates after several days. Then decomposition starts. I assume they embalmed the lady's remains well to allow for this real life version of "Weekend at Bernie's".

I hope this becomes common place. I already love that they try to out-do each other.
