Transcript of Epitaphs

EPITAPHS Epitaphs are often inspired by the deceased person's life and accomplishments. The most famous epitaph is simply, "rest in peace." An epitaph is the short phrase or poem that is inscribed on a gravestone marker in memory of the person who is buried there. Epitaphs are usually serious and sad, but someitmes they can be funny. Here lies Kelly (A)
Oh he was quite the knave (B)
He's staying out of trouble now (C)
A resting in his grave. (B) Most of these funny cemetery tombstone epitaphs came from graveyards in the old West, where it was often left to acquaintances or even strangers to choose the words on a tombstone, and where a sense of humor was a survivor tool. Here are some funny epitaphs from real tombstones: It was a Cough
That carried him Off.
It was a Coffin
They Carried him Off In. Stranger, tread
This ground with gravity.
Dentist Brown
Is filling his last cavity. Here lies Lester Moore.
Four slugs
From a forty-four.
No Les
No More. Here lays Butch.
We planted him raw.
He was quick on the trigger
But slow on the draw. Here lies the body
Of Margaret Bent
She kicked up her heels
And away she went. He got a fish-bone
In his throat
And then he sang
An angel note. Here lies the body
of John Round.
Lost at sea
and never found.
