Ashes To Ashes, Bust To Bust

Hey, Obama voters! You can now honor the first black president by placing your loved one’s ashes into a Barack Obama bust. I wish I was kidding.

What can be more fitting than placing a dead person’s ashes into a likeness of the president who killed the United States economy?

After all, the American dollar isn’t worth more than a pile of ashes, so . . .

I don’t know what is more creepy; the fact that personalized bust urns are now available, or that people – lots of people – will actually buy the Obama urn.

Cremation Solutions, a Vermont-based memorial products service is taking the idea of a traditional urn and turning it on its head, using state-of-the-art facial recognition software and 3D printers to produce human faces as realistic monuments.

The company says it can design the urn to look like anyone – all it needs are photos that show the front and side of the face the customer wishes to use. The heads stand on a marble plaque and come complete with a nameplate. Each urn is built to order, and customers have the chance to approve the design before each one is sent out.

Maybe we can put the remains of Obama’s presidency into it after November?

    Personality cults have always creeped me out, but this one takes the cake. I mean, the guy’s entire personality can be summed up in two words: arrogance and egocentrism.

    If I had done that to my husband, he would be rolling over in his urn even as I write this.

    Here is my point of confusion. If you didn’t get a Barack Obama urn would you or your family be called a racist because you won’t put your ashes inside a black man’s head?

    I’m starting to see the potential in this. Remember those
    coin banks from the 30′s, 40′s and 50′s? No not the blackface ones. Get a bust with a moveable jaw put a pushbutton on top and you feed the coins by placing them in the mouth then pushing the button and the bank eats it. I loved mine as a kid. These could also be installed in dog parks also so as they lift their leg they can take revenge on those who used to eat them. Placed atop
    gravestone monuments with motion sensors in the eyes
    that would play an audio message when somebody walked by, hearing…” I didn’t get here on my own!”, could become a classic favorite.

    I kinda like the idea of putting Obama’s ashes into his head. Can we take up a collection or sum’pn do do it before November?

    I though it was a Barak Obama piggy bank. Doesn’t matter how much coin you put in, you’ll never get it back.
