I have been doing Funeral magic as Weepin' Willie for years and actually have a promotional DVD that teaches amazing magic suitable for birthdays, wakes, and funerals that can be done with things found around the typical home or embalming room.

My favorite effect is to place a 'pull my finger' sign on the cadaver's chest and hide a remote controlled fart machine in the coffin.

If you like this type humor you'll love my books Weepin' Willie and Return to Hayville.

What is your favorite funeral humor?

I have designed wrapping paper for funeral gifts.

Hokey, but no more so than typical Hallmark...

"Here Lies a Gift For You"

"R.I.P. This Package Open"

"The Late Gift"

Autopsy paper is sewn closed.

Organ donors have nothing inside the package but cotton fill.

Cremations are a snap.

When you drive a hearse, it kind of comes with the territory:

"Better to have your first ride not be your last ride."

I keep a child-sized skeleton below deck. At times, I strap it into my daughter's car seat. This exchange happened in a McDonald's Drive-thru with the manager on a day when service wasn't exactly up to the 90-second standard:

"You really ought to feed that kid!"
"She was fine when I placed my order!"
***I got a laugh, but no discout or free sundae.

My favorite:

"How can you drive a hearse."
"It's not a hearse, it's a First Call Car." [Sometimes I substitute Service Vehicle.]
***It is usually after the "Oh," that I explain what a First Call Car/Service Vehicle does, or spell it out with the nickname "Morgue Wagon."

No disrespect intended toward either the dead or undead Smile

Michael, I've got to use some of those ideas in my next book... lol
Handa: Love the kid skeleton idea.

notice to all: There were no dead people disrespected, abused, or made love to in this discussion.

Dennfox, good choice. I tried that same one once and it was a real killer. However, I goofed and the dead guy revealed the wrong card and the trick failed. Never trust the dead..... they're not reliable.

Another of my favorite pranks is to bury the cell phone with the cadaver so the spouse can call it once in a while to hear the message and have some sense of contact. Only, I actually remove the cell phone before burial and late one night a week later ring the spouse from that number and hang up. I get paid extra to dig up and rebury the dead spouse everytime.Not only is the spouse hysterical but it is hysterically funny.
