Just when you thought reality TV producers, specifically TLC, didn’t have any more people to exploit, they’ve come up with a solution – go after the dead ones.
The cable channel is about to kick off a new series the day after Christmas called Best Funeral Ever.
The show features a funeral home in Texas that does “home-going”-style funerals, which celebrate the life of the deceased instead of mourning them.
The theme-based funerals feature everything from bowling caskets down a lane at a bowling alley to a funeral for a boxer held in the middle of a boxing ring.
Is it me or is this a BAD IDEA?!! It may be super entertaining television, but is it not a little macabre?
I get the celebration of life thing and the "after I die i want you to ________ with my dead body" philosophy, but can't we even die with dignity anymore? Besides if I kicked tomorrow and no one mourned, or for that matter had a great time because of my passing without me... I'm gonna be MAD!
