  1. First! yay for me

  2. I’d hit it ♥

  3. is that another photo of someone in a casket in there with her? family tradition, perhaps..

  4. The funerals I’ve been to always had photographers. I found it unsettling.

  5. Grandma got run over by a reindeer :(

  6. i hope she haunts her granddaughter for putting this on facebook

  7. It gets better… they freakin tagged her!

  8. Even in death, old ladies have to have tartan blankets. It’s the LAW.

  9. This really makes me want to delete my facebook account

  10. Thesaurapist 13(F)

    OK, I think that’s the whole life-set now – being born, first poop, giving birth, and a post-mortem shot.
    Did we forget anything?
    Oh yeah, conception – but obviously posting pictures of *that* onto the internet would be a bit tasteless . . .

  11. This is just wrong

  12. I dont think its that weird….but I wouldn’t post it on FB

  13. BONER ALERT

  14. Oh my :S

  15. omg. no.

    who is gonna sow her crops on farmville?

  16. What’s she got her glasses on for? Surely it’ll be dark when the lid’s closed?

  17. i laughed at the fact that they posted this on facebook.

    im a semi-bad person.

    and my condolences.

    that being sad… someone gave her a lovely pearl necklace.

  18. Um, is that a picture of someone else in a casket with her?

  19. Eww, I think it is a picture of a baby.

  20. WTF?!

    That so wrong!!!

  21. I am 100% convinced that society has lost it’s fucking mind. Is NOTHING sacred anymore???

  22. it could be a picture of a relative that died when she was a girl (memento mori).

  23. this is effed up

  24. It is common for people to take pics of loved ones who have passed away. Helps them cope afterward. and reminds them of peace.

  25. Her eyes look like they’re open.

  26. old people are always so much more fun to fuck when they are stiff with rigomortis.

    *unzips pants*

  27. #25
    I feel peace splooging in a sock but I wouldn’t book-post its pic. Thats why I have a website

  28. Lamebook now has an entry of a newborn, first shit, teenage angst and now death. What next, the Pearly Gates?

  29. When I first saw this, I was upset, shocked and indignant.
    Now, I’m just LMAO @ harold and Bry.
    Lamebook is making me lose faith in my own humanity. ;)

  30. I totally know Hayley and thought it was crazy when I saw she had put this up.

  31. That is disgusting, why would someone want a picture of their dead grandmother, like seriously, that person had problems, and they tagged her, ew…omg….and that looks like a picture of a child in a casket, in with her, like WTF???

  32. 22, I’m alive!

  33. Apparently it’s common in some families to do this. Dates back to the Victorian era. I came across this post about it a few months ago on mental_floss: http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs//archives/14682 (warning – if you found the above photo disturbing, you will probably find the images in this post slightly moreso).

  34. I should NOT be laughing at some of these comments.

  35. but I is.

  36. I like turtles.

  37. Why’s her nan not been tagged?

  38. Yeah, this is fairly common and normal to some people. Not me.

  39. hahah, my sister took a picture of my great grandma in her casket a few years ago

  40. Ah so she’s a Scot, I believe (the tartan).
    And I’m so curious about the picture of another casket in her casket.
    Can anyone explain?

  41. I hope they have some pics of when she was alive.

  42. That picture in the casket with her… is that an old picture of a baby in a casket????

  43. This isn’t all that odd, (the concept of taking a photo like the one above etc etc) but fuck, does it really need to be on FB? Really?

  44. The Victorians used to take pictures of their dead all the time- Memento Mori it was called. Even more odd is they would prop them up to try to make them look more lifelike. And then they would show off the picture to friends and family.

  45. Lol she is tagged in the photo as “granny1″.

  46. Hey, I think I am going to TAG my grandmother too! I might even make it my profile picture! Then I will get lots of comments and feel really popular!

  47. liz, not to be confused with boz

    Writing comments about coitus with the deceased is not funny, nor is it appropriate at all. I dont care how disgusting your sense of humor is, thats just rude and tasteless.
    But, im sure you dont really care about presenting yourself as tasteful- if you put something about unzipping your pants at a funeral anyway. Grow up.

  48. “But, im sure you dont really care about presenting yourself as tasteful- if you put something about unzipping your pants at a funeral anyway”

    Wow liz, you must have an IQ of 300 to have worked that out all by yourself.

  49. my aunt recently gave me a picture of my cousin (ie her son) who died earlier this year in his casket. i freaked out and don’t really want it (although i kept it) … i see why people do it but yeah, fuck man, keep some things private. if you want certain people to see it, i guess send it to them.

  50. liz, not to be confused with boz

    I dont see how that is relevant..
    people commenting about having sex with a dead person is probably one of the most offensive things ive seen in a while.. it just strikes a nerve with me..
    At my papas funeral, my granny took pictures, just because even though he is passed away, hes still her husband. Even though it was a sad time in her life, it happened. Maybe having those photos helped her grieve. I agree the picture probably shouldnt be on fb, but the comment definitely should be deleted. trashy.

  51. Was your papa stiff?

  52. liz, not to be confused with boz

    that really wasnt funny at all.. I know you want attention but make fun of your own dead family members.
    and see a psychiatrist.

  53. I’m dating a psychiatrist. She’s REALLY fucked up.

    But seriously; was he?

  54. Stiff as a board.

  55. You know, maybe I’ve just been expecting the worse in these posts, but when I saw “NSFW” and that the picture was going to be of a dead person, I honestly expected to click through and have it be revealed that someone was pretending to comically give the corpse oral. I really thought the blurred out lower portion was going to be revealed to be another person pretending to go down.

  56. Pretending?

  57. But look at the caption “My grandma in her casket…”. In context, this could actually be someone else’s funeral. We’ll call that someone “Aunt Mabel”. So what Hayley is really saying is “My grandma in Aunt Mabel’s casket…”.

    So it might not be a picture of a dead person, just a fucked up coffin testing grandma.

  58. I’m sure the picture in the casket with her is probably of her own child that passed away before her, it looks like at a very young age. Very sad if you think about it.

  59. #59 – It doesn’t look like she’s losing much sleep over it.

  60. She might be watching in heaven saying “Im ready for my picture mr. director”

  61. I see dead people…

    On Facebook like regular people.

  62. ::Jawdrop::. Period.

  63. I would like to type in capitals right now but I will not. This is very disturbing. Or maybe something else is I do not know and I really do not care. But this is fucked up. FUCK YOU Lamebook. Really, FUCK YOU. Here I am, coming home from a night out, eating a fucking sandwich. Thinking hey, why not update Lamebook, see if something fun has come up. Maybe even something thats NSfW, those pages are mostly fun. Well heeey! There was one! And it was even NSFW! But wait, was it only not safe for my working environment? No, this was way beyond. This was on limits of disrespectfullness and shitkukfittaness I do not care. I can not speak english anymore. There will be no more “stupid likes turtles”. Lamebook I hate you. Fuck you. I ate a freaking good sandwich and you showed me a friggin corpse with barely NO warning. FUCK YOU FITTJÄVEL. Thats way beyond making fun of anything. Thats a corpse. Fun for you maybe that someone submitted it. fuckyou

  64. Sincerly yours, stupid likes turtles.

  65. Why would you do that?

    I mean show some respect, I know when I die I don’t want a picture of me dead posted on facebook!

    People seriously don’t keep anything sacred anymore; who ever posted it seriously needs to learn that somethings are just not for facebook!

  66. You people need to relax about death. They say in life, no one gets out alive. Now, back to the pearl necklace…that was nothing, you can’t see the dirty sanchez.

  67. #16 made my fucking day.

    And really 64? You couldn’t guess from the subset that was clearly not blurred out. Also, there was a double warning from the Lamebook people – not really their fault if you chose to ignore it or the fact that have indiscriminive choices.

  68. Saying that though, I’m fairly numb to almost everything on the internet anymore – but I do understand how one could be so disgusted.

  69. #64 chill out dude, no one is asking you to go down on her.

  70. When people took pictures of the dead in Victorian times, it was typically because that was one of the few (if not the only) pictures that were taken during their lifetime (er, or time above ground, I guess), especially if it was of an infant. While I could see wanting to take a picture of something like this, the same reasons don’t really apply, and there’s really no reason to put it on facebook.

  71. AND, although it really should go without saying, the “haha, look, sex with dead people is funny” jokes are just tasteless. They’re right up there with that porno based on Jaycee Dugard that’s being made.

    Seriously people, some things just shouldn’t be joked about.

  72. Horseshit, #72. Nothing should be off limits from jokes.

  73. Why in the hell would people make fun of an elderly lady who died? It just blows my mind. It’s one thing for this person to post this, it’s a whole other thing when people start making “pearl necklace” jokes about someone’s dead grandma. Grow a spine. I really hope you wouldn’t talk like that about your own family members.

  74. #69
    #70
    Feeling slightly better now, ate my sandwiches dispite the picture. In another condition I do not think I would have found it that repulsing.
    Still no good posting it though, and I do not thing they did give a fair “double warning” what so ever.
    And #68-69, no I could not. I normally do not take a gooood look at the blurry pictures. I click on the title to see what fun hides behind all the blur. Because the blur usually covers something fun. Not this time. Turtles.

  75. Respect death? Ohhh fuck off!!! To everyone who is acting like a crying little bitch about how this post has fucked up your day, you can FUCK OFF! Its lame and thats that this site is about hence the reason its called Lamebook.com – when you’re dead you’re dead – the dead dont care what you do to them and i dont care what you do to the dead – your body is a vessel end of story!

  76. #75
    Dude, below the blurred out picture? The tag of the photo says “My Grandma in her casket at her funeral”. Not blurred.

  77. Adam fuck you, you are a person with less value than all others. And also you have the AMAZING (yeah really amazing with capitals!!) ability to NOT understand things! I realy hope that will come handy for you in your future! Allthough I am sure it has already had its marks on your personal life. Puss

  78. #77
    Call me a hypocrite, but no I did not read that. Nope, did not. “Blurred picture”, that was all that passed my mind.

    Good night all, see you all in another board some day perhaps.
    Puss

  79. Yeah, I get what you mean, ooooh, blurry… exciting. But if there’s anything this site’s taught me it’s: be careful about blurred pictures.

  80. It’s still very common at Polish Catholic funerals to take photos at the viewing…..

  81. I love that its a mobile upload.
    “Hang on let me get my iPhone out for this!”

    I wonder if she twitpic’d too?

  82. funeraldirectorchica

    @ #27 –> good attempt at humor, but a dead body is relieved of rigor mortis by the time they are viewed. And considering she is being viewed, she is obviously embalmed, in which case there is no rigor mortis at all. good try though ! =)

    && it is common for certain religions to take pictures at the funeral. Although they obviously should not be posted on FB. . . thats just strange.

  83. @funeraldirectorchica – did they used to paint portraits prior to there being cameras?

  84. #79 yes, you are a hypocrite for not reading that and then blaming lamebook for your poor eyes. When excited about blurriness, were you hopping for a chick pissing her pants or baby’s first poop?

  85. I don’t see a problem with the fact she has taken this photograph.

    I do find it slightly strange she has posted it on her fb and tagged her late grandmother, but she obviously didn’t think it strange (to each their own and all that malarkey), and I’m certain she didn’t think one of her facebook friends would be so callous as to screenshot it and put it on lamebook!

  86. Alison
    You seem to be missing the whole point of lamebook altogether..

  87. Pixeling the eyes? Really? This picture was taken from public domain, so her family can’t say a word…so is grandma gonna sue for invasion of privacy?

  88. ugh, no, it’s not public domain, however there’s nothing legally wrong with posting it. It’s just kinda morbid and disrespectful.

  89. The fact that someone tagged the grandmother seems a bit disturbing to me.

  90. Yay? zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  91. I hate when people take pictures at funerals.
    morons.

  92. Who let the caped crusaders in?

    I want to know if, when Hayley’s friends got an update that “Hayley has uploaded 1 photo,” if anyone “liked” it.

  93. (They're coming to get you) Barbara

    BBBRRRAAAAAAIIINNNZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!

  94. wow qwertzxcv, calm down man… we’ll all die sooner or later; not worth getting all worked up over.

  95. Hey, quertzxcv – lamebook didn’t post it on facebook.

  96. You may also have noticed, q, that the caption under the picture said “my grandma in her casket at the funeral” right above where it said “warning: some might find image disturving.” How much more of a warning were you looking for?

  97. qwertzxcv took this shit to another level. this is better than TV.

  98. el_monty: how?

  99. Qwert is a lot like that flexo dude. Trolls I tell you!

  100. this is totally fucking wrong, why the hell would you put this on facebook! why would you want a picture of the dead body of your nan online.. i really dont get shit like this… fuckingg helllll.

  101. For The Win

  102. Oh my god! Why would you EVER take a picture of your dead grandmother??? I’ve been to many open casket funerals and seen people go up there and cry, pray, talk, etc… Never in my life have I seen someone snapping pictures of the person inside the casket!

    And ok, so you take a picture (for your scrapbook?? wtf???). WHO POSTS THAT ON FACEBOOK??? GROSS!!!

  103. I find nothing disturbing or shocking about this pic. Death is just a natural part of life, why shouldn’t it be posted on facebook?

    I’m just surprised when people react to images of death like this.

  104. if grandma was alive I’m sure she’d be oh so pleased that you posted a picture of her all dead and stuff on facebook….oh wait, none of that made sense.

  105. Hellz, my cervical fluids are also a natural part of life but I’m not going to post photos of it.

  106. This is a GREAT ad for organ donation and cremation..Just think..Better for the environment,help save a life AND you don’t end up being ridiculed by idiots..and by idiots I also mean you’re OWN thoughtless family who in their “infinite wisdom” put you on display for all the world to see.

  107. lucy lu, you are an asshoe

  108. #104
    I totally agree, this is not some gory picture. She is peaceful and looks cared for. I think people are not exposed to death enough. It has become this huge dramatic thing instead of the natural process that it is. Making comments about sex with the dead is just as silly as being angry about those same comments. I don’t find it lame that this was posted on facebook, I think it’s a nice change to the other crap people post on their fb pages.

  109. how is this image disturbing? i was expecting something nasty.

    like, a bloated disfigured, discolored body.

  110. This is such a strange custom. My father’s family took pictures of my grandmother (only a few could make the wake) but then they mailed us copies of all the pictures. My parents still have them because they feel strange about throwing them out.

  111. Ok, so THIS you put behind a cut, but pictures of FECES you display proudly? WTF, Lamebook? Get a clue.

  112. ha my family gave my grandma a casket and paid funeral for her birthday last year while she was still alive

  113. ‘mobile uploads’-
    so not only was this picture taken…it was taken with a cell phone.
    this is a funeral, not a god damn jonas brother’s concert.

  114. Tired Of The Stupid

    The photo didn’t disturb me. The comments about wanting to fuck, have oral sex and etc.. did.

    I know your doing your very best to look cool by saying the most extreme thing possible but grow up for fucks sake. Especially those of you who say the exact same thing someone else already said. I counted numerous “want to fuck her” comments. Pathetic, can’t even think of your own comment.

  115. Wow #64 grow up! It’s only a dead body – it can’t hurt you! Stop going on about your damn sandwich – Lamebook gave plenty of warning for all the pussies out there. I can’t believe how many people are scared of bodies – I see them nearly everyday, it’s not scary at all.

  116. Oh man, no chance for Grams to remove the tag from an unflattering picture.

  117. NSFW? More like NSFL–Not Safe For Life. >.<

  118. #99
    Alison:
    You might find this cruel, but the fact is, we are here to laugh at the weird, lame and/or stupid things people say and post on FB, not to be understanding of their criteria to do so (“to each their own”? No. Try: WTF?). And Lamebook exists only because there are people who post that (relatively private, in theory) stuff here. Is that too callous for you to enjoy it? If so, then you’re probably on the wrong site

  119. Not that fucked up, calm down people. This is just someone commemorating her grandmother. Best Gore has properly fucked up dead people. So get off your conservative high horse and relax.
    Mary-Jane is a wonderful relaxant

  120. What I can’t believe is that they actually TAGGED her in it.

  121. Am I the only one who finds it slightly amusing the previous post is ‘bodily dysfunctions’?
    Really?

  122. LOL necroman at #58 and jane at #56 – some of the funniest comments ever. I didn’t get shocked by this post at all. Seriously, that bloody baby from a few pages back was 10 times more disturbing..

  123. Amen Ms. Terri/#93

    This would be far more amusing with that trusty little thumbs-up graphic. Especially if Mr Martha was responsible for the ‘like’.

  124. That’s creepy.

  125. @104

    So is breastfeeding. But I’d prefer not to see your dinner plate nipples on facebook, thank you.

  126. I’m lovin’ how they tagged her too.

  127. WTF that’s my fucking grandma what the hell are you people doing with this picture????? WE put it on fb for the family who couldn’t be at the funeral to see and you guys somehow get hold of it an laugh at it!??! What the fuck is wrong with you assholes, that woman is dead! She was a loving mother and wife and grandmother and we should be respecting her for that. RIP Gran X

  128. Ahah either troll or douche, wait, they’re the same thing…
    Go home, the point of this site is to laugh at people like you :D .

  129. because when im at a funeral i think, i know, i’ll take a photo of this moment and share it with the world. yeah good times.

  130. im not sure what to say to this
    tweet @deathcab4booty seems appropriate

  131. Finn it’s not fucking funny ok douchebag how would you feel if it was your gran on lame book huh?

  132. Sam. Despite the fact that you’re lying and love attention online…

    Even if it is your “gran” it’s still funny. She’s tagged. How unbelievably hilarious is that? She had a facebook (it’s still active) and someone had the nerve to tag her…as though she’d get the notice and be happy someone tagged her…

    The world we’ve created is the best. I get more and more laughs per day as time rolls along. People are retarded and I rock (because I’ll die laughing and people will die being lame).

    Sam. Chill. Kay? Cool.

  133. I worked at a mortgage company and I had to ask a customer why she had paid her mortgage late. She said that she had to make an emergency trip out of the country to attend her grandfather’s funeral…she then proceeded to send me a picture of dead grandpa in his casket. I felt like I was in a Seinfeld episode.

  134. oh my god, i had a coworker do this too, too a picture of the corpse in the casket then brought it all to us to see at work..then got pissed because we called her creepy..and the pict was on her cell phone..

  135. Is her face blurred so noone will recognize and ambarass her at the market? “Girl, I seen you dead in that casket. Your makeup was jacked up!”

  136. I Love how she Tagged her Dead Grandmother… Its gunna show up on her Grandmother’s facebook! (wtf does grandma have a facebook?)

  137. who is grandpa gonna fuck now?

  138. probably stay tuned on his hand

  139. Why do people put this on facebook!!!! :O

  140. That pic in there with her must be her “glamor shot” from 1892.

  141. Fucking hell…. Hate the old bitch that much that you would humiliate your family like that on facebook….? Who takes a camera to an open casket? Was this taken in Ohio?? Fucken hippi’s

  142. I don’t see what the big deal is… & what does NSFW stand for?

    #61 Bruce: “I see dead ppl…Like everyone else on facebook” you win, hilarious…

    If you’re christian and you think she’s in heaven what’s the big deal, her soul is gone, it’s just a body and if you’re atheist then really what’s the big deal.
    I can’t believe ppl get so jacked the fuck up at other ppl’s comments. It’s a picture, It’s facebook/lamebook, it’s funny…

  143. This is so lame it is not worth a comment!

  144. There is a photo in the second picture… and I bet there is a photo in that picture as well…. Kinda looks like a window into the past. I might have to tell my family to start that tradition… looks cool.

  145. I think number 3 got this one on the head.

  146. I’m guessing the lady doesn’t have a Facebook account of her own, otherwise she’d be tagged properly in the photo…

  147. I came.

  148. the 4th comment sounded like dwigth schrute

  149. I just saw this and I have not even read the comments and I am not going to. But I have a picture of my daughter in her casket on facebook! Most of my friends have lost children and most are my family. If they do not like it then they do not have to look. I put it there for me and for my family. I do not have a problem with this!! It is personal and private. Facebook is usually private and only for friends and families. If my friends or families had a problem with this then they could delete themselves. I dont care.

    Off my soap box now, this one just struck a cord in me!!

  150. I would say folks should try not to be so ethnocentric, but I realize most of you probably don’t even know what that means, so let me break it down.

    Different people deal with death in different ways. In many cultures, it is quite common to photograph funerals and the dead. I imagine it has been this way since the early days of modern photography, when people realized they had a quick and lasting way to capture the last moments of their loved ones’ bodies. It’s not necessarily trashy, just one way of doing things. I, myself, was not raised with this tradition. I probably wouldn’t do it myself. But I know photos were taken of my mother-in-law in her casket.

    What’s the value in being so judgmental?

  151. HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHA!

    Some of the funniest comments EVER.

    I think I peed my pants…

  152. Huh… they tagged her…

  153. Aww, sadness- I just noticed the picture next to her is of a baby in a coffin.

  154. I also just noticed this is a “mobile upload.” XD XD XD

  155. its a Social Site. Just. Not your fucking 2nd life. Damn.

  156. if the photo is indeed a picture of a baby isn’t it possible for it to be a picture of her (grandma) as a baby?

  157. @ gaijin – in a coffin? She’s died twice? Nana was Jesus? Most likely one of the kiddies who didn’t make it way back when.

    This was a kinda average entry but the replies and banter on lamebook made it gold. Sheer feckin genius.

    So, two necrophiliacs are walking past a cemetery – one says to the other “Hey – wanna pop in for a cold one?”

  158. This work of Jay Ruby offers some Anthropological perspective/context:

    http://people.virginia.edu/~ds8s/jay/jay.html

    “Secure the Shadow is an exploration of the photographic representation of death in the United States from1840 to the present. It focuses upon the ways in which people have taken and used photographs of deceased loved ones and their funerals to mitigate the finality of death…

    Photography’s amazing popularity for the last century and a half is undoubtedly due to its capacity to help us remember people, places and events. It provides a witness – one thought to be impeachable and permanent. Life is commemorated through photographs, why not death?
    A logical question, perhaps, but one that makes many twentieth century Americans uncomfortable. Sometimes thought to be a bizarre Victorian custom, photographing corpses has been and continues to be an important, if not common, occurrence in American life.”

  159. hippydippynikie

    maybe grandma was a total bitch. burn baby burn.

  160. hahah whoever puts her picture in there casket will have a picture of a picture of someone else in the casket, then it will carry on for generations and GEENERATIONSS!

  161. lollll she’s tagged hahhaa

  162. I don’t think it’s odd.
    I don’t think they should have posted it on facebook though.
    A lot of older people don’t have many pictures made, and that’s the last time those people are going to see her.

    Although, I wouldn’t advice taking a picture after death, I would much rather have the memory of her alive.

    Also, the picture with her, could be a lost child. Maybe it died in birth? And she probably wanted to be buried with it. Many people near death plan their own funerals.

  163. i could understand that maybe some people need to take pictures of that sort of thing.. but to put them on facebook??? reallllyyyyy?

  164. Why do they bury people with their glasses on? It would look so much better if they were wearing contacts.

  165. where’s the respect …?

  166. @mimesis Fascinating link. Thank you!

  167. I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, bidstag. c 0m
    .. .. . .

  168. Since I didn’t take a pic when my nana died, I’ll use this one instead. Thanks!!

  169. status predator

    Well there’s one ingenious way of casting a sympathy vote, that said she’s not getting any from me the morbid cow.

  170. Noooooooooooo

  171. So…? It’s not like she’s been just hit by a truck or anything.
