Say Hi to Elvis for Me

I don’t even know what to say about this, it speaks for itself. From afterlifetelegrams.com: For a fee of $5.00 per word (5 word minimum), our customers can have telegrams delivered to people who have passed away. This is done with the help of terminally Ill volunteers who memorize the telegrams before passing away, and then deliver the telegrams after they have passed away. (Emphasis is that of the site, not mine). The FAQ is highly illuminating.

    This is a really cool post. It’s interesting to me that the folks doing this claim to be donating the proceeds to charity. So at least on that level, it’s not (just) the preying-on-the-grieving scam it appears to be. At least not if they’re telling the truth about that.

    To me the best part is that they don’t actively seek people to carry essages, and that they currently have exactly “1″.

    As a buddy pointed out…

    “Ignoring all kinds of obvious flaws in this plan, shouldn’t they have at least two messengers, one who was a good person, and one who went around kicking puppies and pirating mp3s and building golden calfs (calves?), so you can direct your message accordingly to someone residing in either heaven or hell?”
