Caskets

It’s not very dignified, but constructing a casket from inflatable rubber—instead of the usual solid oak or other durable types of wood—takes a load off of the pallbearers who have to schlep from the hearse to the burial site (and makes it look like the deceased is heading to some swingin’ beach party in the sky). In the short run, an inflatable casket is convenient and nifty, until the time comes to actually bury it. And rubber cannot support the crushing weight of six feet of shoveled earth. To wit, squashed grandma.
