The jokes write themselves, unfortunately

It really makes no difference how efficient it is, or how much cost is avoided at the funeral home. Cremation remains an option.

Best wishes to the inventor; clearly some thought went into the idea. Some areas of life are so blissfully Luddite that the market is unlikely to pay much attention to alternatives, however clever.

    Where were these when I was trying to make my creature?

    Grave robbing would be a snap.

    Of course, Bill Clinton will probably screw himself into the ground, even without the coffin.
