It was only a matter of time. You can get plastic surgery when you're a spoilt teen, an image conscious middle ager and a shrivelled old hag. So why not have some when you're dead?
Undertakers say more and more people are asking to be tucked and smoothed out for their funeral to look good for their friends and family.

"People used to say, 'Just throw me in a pine box and bury me in the back yard'," said Mark Duffey, head of Everest Funeral in the US.

"But that's all changing. Now people want to be remembered. A funeral is their last major event and they want to look good for it.

"I've even had people say, 'I want you to get rid of my wrinkles and make me look younger'."

And deprive the deceased of the opportunity to show off their eternal perma-grin? Puritan. :mad:

I think that staring at dead people is even ruder than staring at live people. Get your Perma-Grin at 50 when you are still alive. It will look pretty much the same either way. :p

Just have them spread out a roll of fondant skin colored sheet frosting that they use on cakes these days over the face. Shape the eyes and nose and tuck it in behind the head !:rolleyes:

If you've got a talented undertaker, you shouldn't need a surgeon. They can cover up gunshots to the head, so they can make anyone look pretty decent.

That's nothing. We already have plastic surgery for the brain-dead.

Considering that an embalmed body has all of its orifices stuffed with cotton so they don't "leak" during the funeral, and that the mouth is basically "nailed" shut using something very similar to a nail gun fired through the bottom of the chin, what dignity is there in looking good anymore?

A little 'pre-burn'before the main event ?I usually stay away from the on-going scuffle that you two have going...but that was funny. :p
