Fabulous: 'Gay Coffins' With Homoerotic Artwork

There are a couple of obvious jokes that can be made but I'll skip them and just offer the story.
Funeral directors in Germany are bidding for the pink pound - by launching coffins specially designed for gay customers.

The caskets feature homoerotic artwork on the outside and come with a series of tastefully luxurious plush designer interiors, say makers Mike Konigsfeld and Tom Brandl in Cologne, Germany.

The designers - who have lived together for more than 10 years - say the images of muscular young men in classical poses are the perfect way to send off a loved one.

"Naturally there were some people who threw their hands up in horror when we had them on display in the window but they are tasteful and beautiful - like our customers," explained Mike.

Funeral directors in the US are real money hungry alqways looking for ways to upsell or cross sell funeral add-on like upgrading caskets ect. Another option is to embalming is cremation to cut the costs.
