A New Year's gift from...the undertaker?!

Popessa is preparing the ubercompilation of bests and worsts from 2007. While the listings become clay in her powerful hands, I offer these two seasonal gifts, maybe small "bests" in their own way, from a most unusual source...

Item: A funeral home near here is trying hard to put itself temporarily out of business, help death take a New Year's hiatus, as it were. The owner is offering free rides home on New Year's eve to anyone who calls the funeral home and declares him or herself unfit to drive a motor vehicle--no questions asked. That's what you call philanthropy!

Item: The truck belonging to the Batesville casket company spotted on I-84 near Pendleton, Oregon. It was festively decorated for the season, with Christmas trees and brightly colored wreaths painted on both sides. Its message, aside from the usual contact information: "Please drive safely: Heaven can wait!"

Happy 2008 to all!
