       When I first saw this idea, I thought it was going to be about flowers.

       What in the H E Double Hockey Sticks is this?

       Leave the dead alone. This idea just gives me one more reason to be cremated and have my ashes dumped out on the muck pile.

       Would the lights be pre-arranged in a certain fashion to fit a single occasion, or would the lighting be programmable somehow, so that one wreath could be set to fit a wide variety of occasions?

       come on boys, ease off - you're bullying poor anne now. Give her the chance to come back and explain more. Or to delete the idea.   

       like whether they're going to produce subliminal messages - the overall lighting layout says 'sadly missed' but the LEDs surrounding every bulb say 'good bloody riddance this guy really made my life a living hell' at a high refresh rate.

       And the wobbly stick should change the verb tense every 24 hours so that people would look at it every day.

       Good question, UnaBubba. I was wondering that myself.   

       It occurs to me that I'd really like to attend a HalfBaked Funeral, if the above are truly indicative of our last requests ...

       What if the batteries die?

       Then you will need an additional wreath to memorialize the batteries.

       This is baked anyway...near where I live there's a cemetary that every xmas has a small tree with battery lights, and every Thanksgiving has a full dinner.   

       Weird.

       Does the food actually get eaten? By something other than the neighborhood cats/dogs?
Susen, Apr 11 2001
  

       Don't know about wreaths, but I've thought that a white LED to illuminate a grave at night might be an easier alternative to using candles for that purpose. A decent battery could probably operate such a thing (dimly) for a year.

       Susen: I doubt it, but never cared to look that close. Once or twice I could see, but this has been going on for fifteen years.

       Id rather have a mini light bar from a patrol car built into the headstone that operated at random...i reckon it would cut down on the vandalism.....
