The Cheap Bastard and Death

June 4, 2012

The Cheap Bastard doesn’t have a lot of time to post deals today because he’s battening down the hatches in advance of a four-child play
date at his house in just a few hours.

He does have a question for you, however. His alter ego, freelance writer David Volk, is working on a book that will be a collection of stories about funerals, death rites and rituals gone horribly, terribly wrong. All of the stories will be true and most will be funny.

Two agents have expressed interest in seeing his book proposal. There’s just one problem. He needs more funny stories. That’s where you come in. If you know of any funny stories that happened during a person’s final hospital stay, time in hospice, at the funeral, during the reception, graveside or anything please drop him a line at david at

He already has stories about near fist fights breaking out in a funeral home bathroom during a funeral, a funeral procession getting lost because one of the car drivers didn’t like tunnels, a cell phone falling into a grave during a graveside service and even a dog dieing and coming back to life. And he’s looking for stories from all cultures, countries and the like.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Heck, if he uses your story, he’ll even mention you in the book.
