Cement deal for Whitney

Heres one way to cement Whitney Houstons legacy: The pop divas 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 Houstons casket, and the singers family cant afford 24-hour security to guard against ghoulish thieves, according to the newspaper The Daily Star.
The British tabloid didnt say when Houstons family would dig up Whitneys New Jersey grave and pour the cement.

$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.
The body is now an empty shell.
I suggest you treat it as such.
SO THAT’S why Bobby Brown beat her - he was initiating the mating ritual!
Ridiculous. Give the jewelry to the Salvation Army or a food bank so it can do some good.
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.
Sad story. Little privacy in life and now even less in death.
Rest in peace Whitney Houston.
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:

That first link was Trojan Central Station LOL....haven’t played that game since senior year myself (90/91) but it was my obsession for a while.
Vagina won that contest by a mile.
Huh. Never had any problems before today. I’ll do a ‘puter scan. Sorry for any mess.
No worries, I clicked out of danger like a savage.
The last 2 links were OK.
Is she a Pharaoh? Why bury $800k? She doesn’t need any of it. It’s not going to heaven or hell, but it could be used for some good here on earth. How about using it to help battered women or people addicted to drugs?
Even if the money wasn’t used for charity, it’s just a waste to bury it.
Creative estate tax planning?
"All that jewelry? We buried it, and set it in concrete."
What a story!
BTW, the Gypsy King and Queen have for many years had their graves “exploited” with backhoes and every other imaginable machinery.
Frankly, I have NO doubt that there is not one bit of bling on Whitney, though she certainly deserves to lie in rest as beautiful as she left this world.
She’s paid a lot for others to have good jobs, though I don’t think they had her best interests at heart.
You know the old joke about the lawyer at an Irish wake...
Why don’t you tell me to refresh my memory?
Finals coming up soon...you will be in my prayers.
A lawyer is third in line to pay his respects to the deceased at an Irish wake.
The first mourner cries and tosses a $100 bill into the open coffin.
The second mourner cries and tosses a $100 bill into the open coffin.
The lawyer shrugs, tosses a personal check for $300 into the coffin and takes the two $100 bills.
P.S. Thanks, I’ll take all the help I can get.
I just hope no one has to fly their flag at half staff.
