Mark Morford at the SF Chronicle points out something in his latest column that is rather surprising and creepy: selected Costco locations are selling coffins.
The thing I don't quite understand is what one would do with a coffin if you're not going to be buried in the thing right away. Sure, you'd like to save money and be prepared, but where do you put a coffin for a year or two or three before you actually use it? Do you use it for storing all those Beanie Babies you're ordering off of ebay? Stand it up in the corner and use it as a walk-in closet?
