Funeral confetti

Pay your respects in style

For years confetti makers have only had one revenue stream - weddings. But there's any number of events which could benefit from a sprinkling of the stuff. The most obvious untapped market is funerals. Black and dark-purple confetti would be the stylish way to show your respects as the funeral cortege passed by. It would also be popular with goths at parties.

*Not suitable for cremations, obviously

       But who's going to throw the bouquet?

       I'm more concerned about who's going to catch the bouquet...

       Do not the confetti manufacturers also make ticker-tape for sporting/public ceremonies ? If not - they should consider it !

       Rock-tossing at my funeral please. Because there just aren't enough riots as it is.

       The Jewish custom is to put, rather than flowers, a rock on the grave site immediately after the burial, and every time you visit, so that the dead person is being postmortem "stoned to death" which relieves them from punishment in the afterworld. It also gives you somehow a "correct" feeling that this is not a live person who gets flowers that wilt, but is now one with the inanimate world for a long time.
