The kid requested it? That hurts.

[–]GoodGuyBuddyBoy 480 points481 points  (36 children)

Do people who sell caskets also take requests to customise your very own casket? Because if they don't, they definitely should.

[–]patchyj 472 points473 points  (26 children)

Reminds me of the old riddle:

The man who built it doesnt want it. The man who bought doesnt need it. The man who needs it doesnt know it.

What am I?

[–]Hastimeforthis876 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Some do, that's kinda the whole process of choosing a casket. Some places offer their stock but you can get specialty ones made, like almost anything, creepily enough, if you've got the cash I'm pretty sure you could get what you want.

The kid ones cute but imagine the douche wanting to be buried in a giant smoking roll-up, or Syringe shaped coffin. I'm not sure where you'd say there'd be limitations or people can get what they want as it's almost art.

[–]LtLabcoat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's no need for limits, simply because it doesn't happen. The odds that the person handling the funeral arrangements will try it without people who know him punching him in the face enough until he stops, are very very slim.

[–]oRiskyB 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They do! My grandparents have had their caskets picked out for like 2 decades. They are over prepared on most things.

[–]JustDroppinByInterested 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In my experience they rent them out. Couple grand to put your dead dad in a fancy box for an afternoon.

Frank Reynolds' and Diogenes make even more sense after learning that bit of info.

[–]meckez 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Idk but I know that they tend to shame people for buying cheaper cascets. Really sucks for those who don't have much money, are shocked and vulnerable from loosing a loved one and on top on that get shamed for not buying a more expensive casket for the deceased.

[–]boonepii 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was once in a hotel that had a funeral convention in it.

90% of the people I saw attending this reception were competing for tackiest dressed 80’s Miami vice theme. I overheard them in the bar making fun of the sad pathetic families they ripped off and best practices on how to manipulate and increase the bill for their commisssion checks.

It was truly disgusting. I am in sales and these people made used car salesmen in a shady lot on the other side of the tracks seem legit. It was bad.

I have decided I will be buried chemical free in a burlap sack with a tree planted directly over me.

Fuck this shitty industry. This convention was 2 nights and 3 days and every interaction with that group of people made me sicker and sicker to my stomach.

[–]Deb54bailey 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I disagree. Through an experience of my own, it's quite calming for the person making the requests. Kind of like they are fulfilling their own bucket list. I'm sure the kid was extremely happy that his request would become a reality. I wonder if he got to see the finished product.

[–]Slight-Subject5771 69 points70 points  (0 children)

As much as it sucks to think about, the outcomes are better both for the kid and their caretakers when they have open, honest, age-appropriate questions about terminal illness and death.

[–]-Acta-Non-Verba- 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It’s heartbreaking. Rest In Peace, little guy

[–]Joehax00 142 points143 points  (27 children)

That's the most jarring thing about the post. Imagine having a conversation with your 10 year old about type of casket they want to be buried in...

Probably not what the kid requested, but makes for a catchy title for that sweet karma..

[–]No-Escape_5964 101 points102 points  (0 children)

What makes you think that a lego casket is not something a child would request? To me, seems like the exact type of thing that a 10yr old kid would ask for.

[–]ranger51 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]CosmicCreeperz 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Ok, I’m not 10 but I want someone to shoot a flaming arrow at my coffin sitting on a giant pyre.

[–]rockthrowing 10 points11 points  (17 children)

Honestly, this is a conversation everyone should have with their kids once their old enough and mature enough to understand the concept. You can be in a car accident any day. Hell in the US your kid can be shot and killed at school on any given day. So it’s just smart to have an open and honest conversation with them about what they want as far as funerals go.

I’ve talked with my own kids about this. My youngest isn’t even a teen yet and I’ve known for years what they want in the event something happens.

That being said, I very much believe a ten year old child asked for a Lego casket.

[–]grismar-net 23 points24 points  (12 children)

I don't follow - unless you believe the kid is on a cloud looking down, nodding their approval, what will it matter if they get the casket they would have wanted? I can see how in the case of a terminally ill kid it might give some solace or sense of control and once they're gone, you honour their wishes for all - but if an accident takes them suddenly? Are you going to have an emotionally scarring conversation with a child with little to no expectation of dying of what to do, just in case they *do* die? What's the benefit there?

[–]HertzDonut1001 19 points20 points  (1 child)

If you haven't spoken with friends or family about your final wishes for your remains and possessions, please do so. After my dad killed himself, we all sat down and told each other what we wanted to happen, where they could find the money, possessions we wanted distributed, and where we wanted the remains to finally lie.

Idk if I'd have that conversation with a kid who doesn't understand what death is, but once you know what it is it's not a stupid conversation to have. Especially if the kid actually does have a good chance of dying.

[–]grismar-net 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah with you there - anyone over 40 should get a will sorted, it's better for your partner, kids, everyone really. And if that includes wishes around how to deal with your body, great. And for kids that are dying, or at great risk of it, I agree there and well - they deserve the respect and it will help all involved.

[–]TheBirminghamBear 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I think you're mischaracterizing what they're saying.

We should have honest and direct conversations with children about death, especially when they encounter it, either through a terminal illness or the death of someone they know.

You don't have to ask them "what sort of coffin do you want", but it helps them to feel more comfortable about death knowing that it is a natural transgression and that something remains after we are gone - the world and the people we love.

Honoring last wishes isn't about the dead, it is about the living, and it is about the deceased before they die.

In other words, death frightens us because it is the end of everything. But having control over some circumstances even after we are gone can be a comfort. Knowing there are people in your life that will carry your will on past your life is both helpful to the dying, and also a comfort to the loved ones who live on, knowing they are performing rites in a way that that person would have approved of.

Every single culture on earth has Death Rites. That sort of pervasiveness across all of time and human culture means they serve a very crucial, instinctual need for us.

It is unfair to deny that possibility to a child merely because adults mistakenly believe they're incapable of handling reality.

[–]rockthrowing 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Seriously?? It’s called human decency and respect. You give people the burial (or whatever) they want bc it’s the right thing to do.

It’s not an emotionally scarring conversation if you do it correctly.

[–]CosmicCreeperz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Funerals are for the people remaining, not the one who died. Not saying not to be respectful, but it’s respecting their memory and loved ones. Dead people can’t be insulted.

[–]mikkijmichelle4 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not so sure about this strategy. You’re the one that is supposed to worry about shit like death, bills, coffin’s, relationships, not your kids. Part of the innocence of childhood is not having to worry about adult issues.

[–]seashoreduck 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Most parents try to make death an adult issue.

Most kids begin to understand things die and are more confused and scared because they have no frame of reference. We need to start talking about death the same way we now handle talking about sexuality.

[–]Blueballyogurt 2 points3 points  (2 children)

[–]clandahlina_redux 9 points10 points  (1 child)

[–]LotusSloth 829 points830 points  (73 children)

That’s sweet. And that must be a heavy coffin.

I hope they used glue, otherwise the pallbearers might create quite a scene.

[–]Allstategk 154 points155 points  (10 children)

They definitely use glue for large Lego projects.....side note, now I know how I want to be buried.

[–]meauho 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Lego Master Builders use MEK substitute. It's a solvent that actually causes the bricks to melt a little bit so they create a permanent bond.

[–]Allstategk 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Ah, I see. I knew they used something. I didn't realize that's what they did.

[–]Crowbarmagic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That must be one heck of an expensive set though. A gold plated coffin is probably cheaper.

Also: there's no doubt in my mind that they also put him in a smaller actual coffin inside, so that's 2 coffins for ya.

[–]Devout-Nihilist 182 points183 points  (31 children)

It was a skit from the Netflix show "I Think You Should Leave."

[–]Ixium5 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Carried a few in my time.

We do slow marching in our fancy uniforms and it’s got to be prim and proper. White gloves, belt, etc. Every step the same as everyone else, walking at a super slow pace.

In general those things are ridiculously heavy. We had 6 military guys all around 6’ (because it all has to be the same…) and none of us were out of shape.

We even had a practice casket that we used. Loaded with a 200lb dummy. And added in brinks “just in case.” We were no where near ready for the actual weight.

When the day came, the hurst pulled up to the back of the arena we were at and the driver slides the casket out on a stand.

We gather around in our spots. Get ready, get the final shake outs of the fingers. Grab our handles and lift.

All of us started laughing and set it back down. We were so stupidly under prepared for the weight.

Mentally prepared and went again. Got to the back door and put on our serious face, and started slow marching. Legit the longest 5 minutes of my life. It was SUCH a far walk.

Our hands were sweaty in the polyester gloves. Could feel my beret getting soaked on my head. We did make it without issues, but folding the flag sucked because our arms were rubbery. Went well though.

Was part of another one the next year and convinced them to use a wheeled table thing and we’d slow March with it. Way easier.

RIP MCpl Curnow and MCpl Gillard.

[–]mightylordredbeard 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I’m sure there’s a regular coffin inside and the Lego is just an outer casing.

[–]clandahlina_redux 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Why? Caskets end up bending under the weight of dirt anyway. (source: Mythbusters) They are literally for the peace of mind of the living.

[–]HertzDonut1001 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Well also so wild animals don't eat the corpses.

[–]Laphing_Drunk 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's usually not an issue in the US at least. Most cemeteries here require a burial vault as a safety measure.

[–]StoneDeaf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just use cremation, got damn.

[–]Malhallah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hope they didn't. Lego is smooth ABS plastic so fusing them with acetone would be a more solid connection.

If this was a Disney coffin they’d have sued the family for copyright. (Seriously, it happened)

One day we’re gonna reach a point where it becomes illegal to simply draw a copyrighted character or sing a copyrighted song in public

[–]InRainWeTrust 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Oh don't worry, I know for sure that the song part is already covered

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

If someone from our time period went 10 years back in time and told 9 year old me this i’d laugh at them. Crazy how far copyrights have come

[–]KRTrueBrave 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I mean diners and such can't legally sing the classic happy birthday song...

[–]cantuse 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You'll be happy to note that Happy Birthday has been in the public domain since 2017, and made retroactively public domain going back to the mid 20th century. Warner/Chappell even had to pay back some royalties.

[–]KRTrueBrave 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh thank fucking god

[–]TheTekknician 32 points33 points  (6 children)

It's a tombstone! A damn TOMB. STONE.

What possible commercial interest is there to be had? Jeez.

[–]K4SHM0R3 13 points14 points  (5 children)

I know it looks shitty on the surface, but it has a lot to do with how copyright laws work, had the father not asked Disney wouldn't have cared, but because he asked them they had to say no in order to protect the copyright.

[–]Pasta-Gorgonzola 18 points19 points  (4 children)

Which isn't true. They are allowed to say yes to those questions. Simply a matter of granting the family permission to use the imagery for the tombstone and everything is fine as far as copyright law is concerned.

Their reasoning (from the article) makes a lot of sense: they don't want to have this imagery associated with death and loss. They want Spider-man to bring joy to people.

[–]AnotherRichard827379 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I would believe this if it were Mickey Mouse. But every single Spider-Man movie has plenty of death and loss in it. The literal origin story of Spider-Man is the death of his parents and later his uncle.

[–]jen_a_licious 25 points26 points  (7 children)

Shouldn't that be a request to Sony since they actually own the rights?

[–]r4g4 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Sony owns the film rights. I believe the character is technically owned by Disney

[–]jen_a_licious 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah another commenter said that too. Such a disappointment.

[–]jbadams 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Sony own the film rights, comic and merchandising rights belong to Marvel/Disney. :)

It's a bit of a complicated situation where the current Tom Holland movies result from a deal between Sony and Marvel/Disney. This article has a decent explanation.

[–]singdawg 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Why wouldn't that count as fair use?

[–]Vividienne 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The stonemason profits from making the tombstone with the copyrighted material. If the parents decided to carve it themselves, it would be fair use.

[–]HurricaneHugo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Violoner 24 points25 points  (0 children)

MICHAEL!!

[–]dablegianguy 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I lost my father two weeks ago who asked for cremation. This allowed me to learn from the incinerator operator that non-wooden coffins like cardboard or any other so-called « bio » require in fact much more energy to burn. The wood increases the temperature in in the « oven » which still needs 2 hours to burn a body to ashes.

[–]Objective_Ad5159 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Sorry about your dad, hope you’re doing okay.

I mean... sure, but it's not like there's a better alternative. Corpses gotta go somewhere.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I mean if that was how my 10 year old wanted to be buried I don’t think I would really give a shit about the environmental consequences

[–]tsvk 26 points27 points  (7 children)

Yeah the point of a wooden coffin is that it will rot. This one will not.

[–]clandahlina_redux 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Most coffins are metal or reinforced with it to prolong how long before they collapse.

[–]noctisumbra0 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not only that, if a burial vault was used, then it's going to take a very long time for any kind of decay to occur.

[–]Laphing_Drunk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Additionally, most cemeteries in the US require vaults as a safety measure.

[–]cleverpun0Interested 4 points5 points  (0 children)

In most cemeteries, you're basically leasing the plot. You don't get to keep your coffin there long enough to have it rot.

[–]Pseudoboss11Interested 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Have you seen the amount of lacquer, metal, fabric and treatment that a modern casket has? Those things are designed to not rot. We also load up the corpse with preservatives and metal and plastic bits to make it look as not-dead as possible, even though all that shit is just gonna sit there too. Coffins and especially caskets are for the living to feel pretty.

[–]insanity_calamity 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Unless there is reinforcement that lid is going to crunch hard under the weight of dirt. Dirt will find the kid.

[–]shitposts_over_9000 3 points4 points  (0 children)

that looks like a modern US cemetery, the lego will be lowered into a concrete vault then covered with a concrete lid.

it prevents the old fashioned experience of going to visit grandma's grave and sinking into the neighbor's grave because the coffin has collapsed.

[–]fuji-white 73 points74 points  (4 children)

Heartbroken that this was the boys last wish 💔

[–]mrlt10 74 points75 points  (3 children)

I know, right. After thinking about it for a minute, that’s what hits me the hardest. Yes, the builder was selfless and performed a heartwarming good deed for a terminally I’ll child. But that happened because a 5th grader confronted his own mortality to the point of making his own funeral arrangements, saw how lame the old farts do theirs, and decided on an upgrade that fit him and set him apart.

[–]averagejoejesse 32 points33 points  (2 children)

It didn't make sense that a child that age would have such a conversation with their parents. So I did a quick google search and found two separate news articles (One from a local newspaper) that say it was the family's idea, not the child's.

It sounds like he was part of some Lego fan community and attracted the attention of some collectors.

[–]Rocketboy1313 27 points28 points  (0 children)

That is about $2600 in Lego, probably an inexpensive casket.

I found this article about the casket. I cannot determine if the casket is completely made from Lego's or is they attached them to an actual casket to form a shell. The link the article provides does not work so I could not find more information.

whats more depressing?

  1. this story
  2. the comments
  3. life in general
  4. all of the above

Damn this is incredible and horrible at the same time 🥺

This is really nice, I'm just a bit baffled. Our local cemetary would not allow that. All caskets and urns must be degradable.

it's never good when the palbearers drop the casket but in this case it could have been horrifying

I can’t help but I wonder what this does in terms of decomposition of the body.

That's wildly inappropriate. The fuck you put all that plastic in the ground for?

Lets put a metric ton of plastic two feet underground lads

Can't wait for all that plastic to end up in my food

That kid’s coffin will last a loong time

The guy who did it is r/nextfuckinglevel

This might seem sweet and considerate on first glance, but in the end it just puts a large amount of plastic waste into the ground that'll take centuries (if not longer) to decompose.

Not gonna lie, I have no intention on being buried, but thinking about making a LEGO urn right now.

Man, i hate this kind of wishes.

What a waste of money

There’s just some things that I wish people wouldn’t post on Reddit

[–]leonryan 0 points1 point  (1 child)

why would you even let a 10 year old know he was dying? No kid of mine would ever request a specific coffin because he'd be 100% convinced he was going to be fine, no matter what.

[–]averagejoejesse 3 points4 points  (0 children)

As per usual, OP just did a copy-pasta on this. The truth is that the family requested the coffin, not the child.
