Beer Coffin

A man in Illinois has custom casket made.

Bill Bramanti will love Pabst Blue Ribbon eternally, and he's got the custom-made beer-can casket to prove it. "I actually fit, because I got in here," said Bramanti of South Chicago Heights, Ill.

The 67-year-old Glenwood village administrator doesn't plan on needing it anytime soon, though. He threw a party Saturday for friends and filled his silver coffin — designed in Pabst's colors of red, white and blue — with ice and his favorite brew.

I love this idea. I actually do have instructions that my ashes are to be placed in my favorite cocktail shaker to be interned in the family crypt.

That oughta keep 'em talking for a few years!
