The Dead Bug Funeral Kit

Boing Boing made me laugh today with this post.

The Buggy Book of Eulogies contains 15 eulogies and 15 buggy illustrations for your Ant, Bee, Beetle, Butterfly, Caterpillar, Cockroach, Cricket, Doodlebug, Fly, Grasshopper, Ladybug, Lightning Bug, Praying Mantis, Spider or Stickbug. The poems are eulogies told by children who have lost their pet bugs to fate. Each book is handmade one at a time. The Kits are assembled by hand as well.

The Burial Scroll comes tied with a ribbon and deposited in the Casket. The Burial Scroll gives instructions for conducting burial ceremonies. Mourners may bury their loved ones outside in the garden or inside the tin box itself, filled with soil and planted with the grass seed provided.

I, of course, abhor any kind of insect. But it might make me feel better if after I squashed them I gave them a tidy funeral. You can order one from here. Alas, I wish I were this clever.
Of course, I will be labeled a vicious killer. I can live with that unless one of you yahoos want to come over here and deal with the evil cave crickets. ***shudder***
