Cement deal for Whitney
By DAVID K. LI
Last Updated: 10:22 AM, May 1, 2012

Here’s one way to cement Whitney Houston’s legacy: The pop diva’s family plans to encase her body in concrete — so that no one is tempted to rob the grave.

The is $800,000 in jewels in Houston’s casket, and the singer’s family can’t afford 24-hour security to guard against ghoulish thieves, according to the newspaper The Daily Star.

The British tabloid didn’t say when Houston’s family would dig up Whitney’s New Jersey grave and pour the cement.

I can see a movie in this.
Half ass clown criminals rent mausoleum to
tunnel under Whitney’s grave, excavate her
casket from underneath, to make off with jewels
only to find someone has beaten them to it.
Laughs and hilarity abound.

Whitney played by Jane Fonda.
Crooks played by assorted democrat aids.

Everybody must get stoned ...

I believe some grave robbers tried to steal A. Lincoln’s bones. Somehow the skull wound up misplaced, then replaced.

I don’t want to hear what all she ever may have done “for the community” after burying $800,000 in the dirt.

Hers to do with as she and her family please.

But it’s a lavish waste.

Replaced with what?

I can imagine 1,000 years fro. Now, when archeologists did up Lincoln’s grave to fine a human body and a wolf’s head and have them speculate on how a wolfman became president.

Read that too. (Abe in concrete.)

His son wanted it done as people kept robbing/opening the grave.

Apparently sickos didn’t just originate in the ‘70s.

I’m thinking a bear’s skull would be cool.
Historians in the 29th century might surmise: “This 19th century leader was capable of biting off the heads of generals who disagreed with him.” In fact, he was more than patient, while exasperated, with a number of them.
Abraham Lincoln, Our Grizzly Bear President. I like it.
Maybe someone could replace Robert E. Lee’s skull with a lion’s skull. That would really throw them a curve.

‘Nazis At The Center of The Earth’ I’m surprised they don’t show robotic Hitler in the trailer above. He really steals the show.
Dr. Mengele was carrying it on his shoulders until Cyborg Adolf’s head is reanimated by a steampunk machine using stem cells.

“Dead as Adolf Hitler”? Don’t you believe it!
Maybe Romney could get him to serve as his veep.

Unless she herself had stipulated it in her will, it’s impossible to believe. Shoot, if it were me I’d say use costume jewelry for the funerary honors and keep the valuable stuff for use on earth.

The is $800,000 in jewels in Houston’s casket...

If true ( I doubt it) that is a stupid decision.

I went through this kind of stuff in a moment of grief years ago, when I wanted to leave a ring worth a couple of hundred dollars on a loved one. The funeral director told me flat out, not to do it. His advice was that if you don't want it, just take it, sell it and give the cash to charity. It was good advice and what I did. And I thanked him for that advice.

Houston's family should do the same.

The family hopes to cash in on continual post mortem sales of her music....sooooo, a legend must be created to turn her into a mystical, never-dying icon ala Elvis.

$800K in jewels encased in cement in perpetuity is the stuff legends can be made from. The eventual payoff for what could be considered madness could be many, many times that figure.

I looked that up, knowing I was right, and still laughed out loud.

That damn game was fun but costly as all get out...the only reason I’m not crying is at least I managed to recycle most of that lead for my brief but enjoyable blackpowder phase.

You should check out the Angry Marines. I’m tempted to start playing just to field a chapter. (Language warning.)

I don’t actually play, but I love the fluff. If you’re curious, there are some very good webcomics based on the game:

Turn Signals on a Land Raider: http://tsoalr.com/?p=1

Servants of the Imperium: http://servantsoftheimperium.com/comic.php?comicid=1
