From the ‘R’ and (especially the) ‘S’ files of this forum is the Lindner coffin calendar. It’s been around for a few years now falling under the category of ‘bizarre news’. The idea of having pretty girls in a calendar to help hawk a product is, of course, nothing new, but the Polish coffin maker is the first to so overtly use it for the funeral business. Not surprisingly the Catholic Church has condemned it stating that human death should be treated with solemnity and not mixed up with sex. Lindner, however, keeps publishing. The calendar is, after all, receiving international attention (all proceeds from it go to charity) and I doubt it’s hurting their bottom line.

The question here is: Do you think the calendar is offensive or, at the very least, in poor taste? If not, would you find such a calendar useful when selecting the last bed that you or your loved one will ever sleep in? OR, do you find this subject has too much of a necropheliac vibe for you to even contemplate?

1) No I don't find it offensive
2) I personally don't find it poor taste, but I can see how some might.
3) No, it would not help in deciding which box I want to buried in.
4) No bad vibe here, sex in a coffin could be fun. Hopefully it just isn't my last time.

LOL! Well since it has a Christmas theme I'm sure the Catholics will go along with it.

This is the only offensive thing in the entire story. Human death and how people feel about it is extremely personal, for that reason, an institution saying how others should treat it is offensive.

Fer Fuck's sake, 2/3 of human life is sex and death.

(the other third is pizza and beer)

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

Name a coffin manufacturer. Name one. Unless you have recently purchased one or work around the industry you can't.

Actually, I used to see a lot of trucks from the Batesville Casket Company on the road when I live in Cincinnati.
