Some of them are especially hilarious. I just found a little book titled "Grave Humor" that presents some of the funniest epitaphs you've ever seen. Many of the examples are more visual then verbal humor, but some of them are quite amusing, especially with the comments posted by the author.

1. Epitaph:
George W. Jr.
May 31, 1927
"I knew this would happen."

Comment: Ever the optimist.

2. Epitaph:
Mary E. Stetter
Oct. 4 1888 June 5, 1968
She is Asleep Not Dead.

Comment:

WAIT!
Somebody let me outta here!

3. Epitaph:

Mable Day
1908 --1996
"Gone to Walmart."

Comment:

So is Mable in heaven or hell?

4. Epitaph:
Roger M. Rothstein
Pardon Me For Not Rising

Comment:
"Ever the gentleman.

5. Epitaph:

Bill Kugle

Jan. 20, 1925 --Dec. 27, 1992
"I never voted for Republicans
And had little to do with them."

Comment:

"I,m Nancy Pelosi and
I approve this message."

    I'd like "Not finished ye..."

    But I wouldn't like a headstone, so it's best I take the opportunity to broadcast in advance ;-)

      "All things considered, I'd rather be in Philadelphia.

      ---W.C. Fields

      Quoted from memory so may not be exact.

        >>>Quoted from memory so may not be exact.<<<

        Not only inexact, but actually non-existent. I checked and found that this famous quote is not on Fields' tombstone. It is based on a joke he once made about "All things considered, I'd rather be living in Philadelphia, when he was still alive. But the only information on is stone is his name and the dates of his birth and his death.

        Another good story spoiled by too much information. <G>
