Amazon Sells EXPENSIVE Urns and Pecan Pie is So Last Month | FFFW #49
HAPPY RADIO DAY
That’s right, it’s National Radio Day. Though to me this seems like bizarre recognition, there might be someone who really loves it. Like, I know someone whose favorite holiday is Arbor Day. I think it’s odd, but that’s just who he is. Actually, almost every day is a national day for something or somethings. For example, not only is today National Radio Day, but it’s also Chocolate Pecan Pie Day. Not to be confused with regular Pecan Pie Day, which takes place in July. So, I guess what I’m saying is, there’s something to celebrate everyday. Even if radio or pecan pie isn’t your thing, you can celebrate the fact that it’s Friday, which, no matter what, is the best day of the week. You can also celebrate that this is our last issue of the FFFW while we’re in our 40’s. Come next week, we’ll be turning 50. So, let’s get the celebration rolling with some fun, some GIFs, some games, and some good news!
Abraham Lincoln is known as being the president that made embalming big in the US. He is also on the five-dollar bill. So, how many $5 bills would you need to buy the most expensive urn on Amazon?

THREE SONGS YOU SHOULD PLAY AT A FUNERAL IF YOU WANT EVERYONE TO FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE AND POSSIBLY CAUSE TRAUMA
1) Goodbye Earl- The Chicks
Just imagine these lyrics on top of an upbeat banjo groove playing at a man named Earl’s funeral.
“That Earl had to die, goodbye Earl
Those black-eyed peas, they tasted alright to me, Earl
You’re feelin’ weak? Why don’t you lay down and sleep, Earl
Ain’t it dark wrapped up in that tarp, Earl”
2) Since You’ve Been Gone- Kelly Clarkson
This would be over celebrating at a life celebration.
“But since you been gone
I can breathe for the first time
I’m so moving on, yeah, yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get what I want
Since you been gone”
3) Somebody That I Used to Know- Gotye
This would just be hurtful.
“Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know”
