Witty Tombstones

Harry Edsel Smith of New York – 1903 – 1942. ‘Looked up an elevator shaft to see if the car was coming down. It was!’

In a Thurmont, Maryland cemetery: ‘Here lies an Atheist, all dressed up and no place to go.’

On the grave of  Ezekial Aikle in a cemetery in Nova Scotia: ‘Here lies Ezekial Aikle age 102. Only the good die young.’

In a London cemetery: ‘Here lies Ann Mann, who lived an old maid but died an old Mann.’

In an English cemetery: Anna Wallace: ‘The children of Israel wanted bread and the Lord sent them manna. Clark Wallace wanted a wife and the devil sent him Anna.’

In a New Mexican cemetery: ‘Here lies Johnny Yeast. Pardon me for not rising.’

A cemetery in Pennsylvania: ‘Here lies the body of Jonathan Blake. Stepped on the gas instead of the brake.’

In a Nevada cemetery: ‘Here lays the Kid. We planted him raw. He was quick on the trigger. But slow on the draw.’

My epitaph is: ‘Be Back Soon.’ What will yours be?
