Funniest tombstone sayings and epitaphs

Most people’s passing is an incredibly tragic affair with weeping widows and long lost relatives saying how much they’re going to miss their uncle / cousin / grand parent or whoever. For some people, their passing is celebrated with a laugh and their headstone reflects this. This one that simply says “I told you I was sick” is a classic that those with a great sense of humour have been using for many many years.

Rodney Dangerfield was another comedian who wanted to make people laugh after his death. This guy was probably best known for his role in the 1980s movie Chaddyshack. His “There goes the neighbourhood” epitaph is particularly well suited to the movie actor.

Mel Blanc was known as the man of the 1000 voices. His work in animation still gets aired today as he was heavily involved with Loony Tunes (well you can tell that can’t you from the tombstone’s “That’s all folks!” text).

Merv Griffin was a media mogul who also hosted “The Merv Griffin Show”. During the course of the show’s run he interviewed more than 35,000 guests. He was also a creative force behind game shows “Wheel of Fortune” and Jeopardy” which were always full of the man’s excellent tongue in cheek humour. His tombstone’s “I will not be right back after this message” is an obvious reference to his TV work but it also reflects his great sense of humour.
