Customized Canopic Jars

Now in Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and Goofy designs!
  [vote for,

A great way to keep your departed loved ones in a fun way would be to divide their main organs (or ashes if you are pricky) in various canopic jars just like the egyptians did. What a most entertaining way to lessen the morbid impact of having the toasted (or non toasted but securedly sealed) remains of a friend displayed on your living room inside a Bart or Homer jar? Of course you could go for the classic four: 1. Lungs - Hapi (baboon) 2. Stomach - Duamutefla (dog) 3. Liver - Imseti (human) 4. Intestines - Qebehsenuef (falcon) but you could add as much jars/vicera as needed!

       I think you could make a decent living selling novelty funerary urns, without worrying about the whole mummification thing. No, wait, waugsqueke just suggested that very thing.

       Too bad they liquefied the brain believing that the only function it has is producing snot.

       For some people I know, they were right.

       For most HalfBakers I guess the "classic" jars wouls actually be Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey, Happy, Bashful and Doc .........
