Anyway, I’m done milking those dairy and meat puns. Let’s roll into the weekend with the happiest newsletter in the funeral profession.

Funeral Home Offers Cremation for Busted Brackets

A local funeral home has announced that it will offer a new service this year: mass cremation for busted college basketball tournament brackets.

According to a press release from the funeral home, the service is aimed at those who have lost their bets and their dignity in the annual event. “We understand that the pain of a busted bracket can be overwhelming,” the release read. “So, we’re here to offer a solution that will give you closure and let you move on with your life.”

The service will include a brief ceremony where mourners can say their final goodbyes to their dreams of winning big. The brackets will then be burned en masse, with the ashes scattered in a nearby park.

When asked about the decision to offer the service, the funeral home’s director stated, “We saw a need in the community and we wanted to help. People invest so much time and energy into filling out these brackets, only to have them fall apart in the first round. We thought it would be a nice gesture to give them a proper send-off.”

A local enthusiast said the following, “I really thought Purdue had a chance this year. But, I’ve been living in grief ever since that first game. This service is giving me a chance to give a real sendoff to my hopes for the season.” So, if you find yourself with a busted bracket this year, remember that there’s a funeral home out there that cares. And who knows, maybe a cremation is just what you need to start the healing process.

Note: this article is satire. I do think a funeral home should offer this somewhere.


Old school.
