    Having a boring night at the funeral home tonight and was wondering what you guys thought would be an ultimate "we told you so!" to Howard. I would say the AGT ratings drop would be a good one. anyone else?

    If I remember correctly its just an old custom we still do today back from when they used to bury multiple people in one plot. Correct me if I'm wrong. History of funerals class was about 10 years ago lol

    In 5th grade we hung out with this kid whos uncle owned a parlor . It was across town.we were in there one day and the uncle showed us around the place he opened a casket and slapped the dead guy really hard my brother freaked. I just didnt know what the fuck happened . never went back.I just remember the creepy look of satisfaction he gave us .

    When we were in highschool our friend would steal formaldehyde from him we would dip joints in it

    The ultimate told you so? How bout a thread on the Internet by a funeral home worker being more entertaining than anything he's produced in the last five years?

    That's really messed up. We treat the deceased with total respect and dignity. Keep in mind we all will be there some day and so will our loved ones. I wouldn't want anyone doing something like that to a loved one. And as for smoking formaldehyde- we don't even use straight formaldehyde anymore. Its formalin which contains formaldehyde in certain concentrations which we mix depending on the strength we need. Each case is different. Just breathing formaldehyde fumes alone more than 1 part per million over a period of time is now finally acknowledged by the FDA to be a cancer causing agent. I can't even imagine what would happen if it was inhaled in a smoke.

    When my Grandma died, my Mom insisted on going to the funeral home to do Grandma's makeup and hair so it was done the way Grandma liked. I went along for support and was fascinated at the behind-the-scenes procedures. A family friend owned the funeral home, so we likely had a little more access than we should have had and his tour was really interesting. It takes a special person to deal with families in grief.

    My sincerest of apologies. As Howard would now say, you are doing Gods work.

    As part of the training in desairology, we all learn how to style men and women's hair and do makeup(restorative art). The family members tend to give us photographs to use as a guide. We have a girl who comes in and does the hair. I personally have never fixed a woman's hair at the funeral home. Not since school actually. This girl does a better job at women's hair styles than any of us men at the funeral home anyway. Lol

    To really bring this back to Howard related, have you checked out the two dudes packages? And have you considered a cadaver sword fight? :dontknow:

    Yeah, even in death we want our hair looking good! My Grandma was frail and suffered from Parkinson's & rheumatoid arthritis so she was pretty much housebound. Grandpa wasn't about to tackle that task, so my Mom had faithfully washed/set my Grandma's hair every Friday for over 20 years. For my Mom, it was a final act of love to make sure she looked perfect.
