    Dangit, I thought it was “Coffin soda“. Now I’m disappointed.

    @Roy Trumbull – The ending of that story is so very awesome.

    So, when you die, can this convert back into a coffin thereby sparing your survivors the expense?

    Thank heavens for Habitat Sofa-coffins!

    The Young Ones caught a South African vampire in one of these. About 5:15 in…

    While it looks very cool (and in purple! ♥), I require furniture that I sit on to be functionally loungable. That looks like it’d be comfortable for about two minutes. Maybe five if I had a sweatshirt on.

    Makes me want to start LARP’ing the vampire thing…kinda.

    A piece of black humor by Carroll M. Capps (AKA C.C. MacApp). Through a computer error the advertising manager for a casket company gets 100 times his normal budget and makes death the new cool thing.

    This innovation will save a lot of trouble for your next of kin if you happen to die while watching T.V. in your living room.
