Linkfest: The PBR Coffin. For Reals.

One man, in South Chicago Heights, designed himself a coffin that looks like a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, while another, in Denver, wants a city commission to prepare for an influx of space aliens.

Hard to say more when it's already the Most.

I think the most morbid part of the beer can casket story is that he had a party, filled the dang thing up with ice and beer. Wowza.
