    This female soldier was murdered and her family spent $13,000 on a SpongeBob SquarePants headstone. After the cemetery gave the family permission to install them they decided to have them removed after deciding they were inappropriate. The slain soldier was a huge fan of SpongeBob.

    I have mixed feeling on this after reading the story this morning. They tried to push that she was a dead war veteran, which is true, but she didn't die in the line of duty. Her fucked up boyfriend murdered her in the U.S. I don't think the cemetery is wrong saying that those head stones are inappropriate, because they are! 7ft. tall Sponge Bobs are just stupid! What if someone dies and their last with is to have their beloved car as their head stone? Should they park a 20 ton stone car in the middle of the cemetery? Sure, someone approved this, but I doubt they knew they would be so big and look so stupid.

    Anyone find the insanely jovial grins demonic in such a context?

    This is a tour of the remarkable headstones at the Hope Cemetery in Barre, VT. You might enjoy it better with the sound down and starting at 2:00. At the 6:00 mark is a very nice headstone of a man an woman in bed together...

    I don't think SpongeBob would be out of place in this cemetery.

    It's only inappropriate because it's so goddam funny. I honestly can't stop laughing everytime I see it in that vid. I imagine it would elicit a similar response from me if was in the graveyard and saw it for real.

    The Jeff Gordon arm tattoo makes this even more epic! :jj:

    BTW, they put TWO of them up at $13k each...if you have $26k to invest into tombstones, you have more money than brains..

    People should have whatever they want on their headstone as long as its not hurting someone else. People who complain about other people in a graveyard are idiots. It's like constantly complaining your neighbor dresses weird and has a different style than u. That stone is a neighbor to ur loved ones stone, what does it matter?

    "Spongebob, Spongebob, Spongebob"! Was the woman 28 or fucking 8? This was the wake-up call for that entire family to grow up, already.
