DEATH IN DISNEYLAND 

DEATH IN DISNEYLAND

From theme parks to theme funerals, America is indeed a glorious land of abundantly bizarre opportunity. The Mississippi Press recently reported on St. Louis' Wade Funeral Home where, "[In a] room dubbed 'Big Mama's Kitchen,' loved ones layed cards barely an arm's length from [the open casket]. Guests sipped iced tea and Kool-Aid near a stove with a platter of real fried chicken, and a couple of fake pies. A Wonder Bread loaf sat atop a refrigerator, and dishes were in a drainer near the sink." Other funeral options include a room with a basketball goal for sports fans, and for ex-anglers there is a well-stocked pond with a sign reading, "Fishing season is closed."
