This F Minus cartoon shows a coffin on a couch with the speaker saying, “He died as he had lived.”
It’s interesting to note the box on the couch is a coffin rather than a casket. Do you know the difference?
A coffin is a six-sided box, narrower at the feet and angled in from the shoulders to the top of the head. It’s a style more prevalent in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and European countries. In the United States, the Philippines, and North America, the four-sided casket, often with a two-part hinged lid, is the preferred style.
