Today’s Pickles cartoon is so right on! Earl and Opal’s daughter is looking in a cupboard and exclaims, “Mom, you’ve got hundreds of empty Cool Whip containers in your cupboard! What are you planning to do with them?”
Opal says, “Oh, they come in handy for storing all kinds of things.”
Earl pipes up, “She’s not kidding. When I die, she’s going to put my ashes in one of them.”
I’ve seen two movies that feature Folger’s coffee cans as low-cost cremation urns. Now cartoons with Cool Whip containers! I wonder if they’re paying product placement fees?
Any other creative urns out there? My mom certainly has her own massive collection of plastic containers, but cremation is not part of my parents’ funeral plans.
