Top 10 Worst Comments to Make at a Funeral

Funerals, by nature, are somber, reflective affairs where respect for the deceased and their loved ones reigns supreme. Or at least, that's the idea. But sometimes, someone blurts out a comment so stunningly off-color or ill-timed that it leaves everyone within earshot agog. From glibly discussing the deceased's misadventures to bizarrely ill-timed hunger pangs, some comments are memorable for all the wrong reasons.
The Top Ten
1 I was there when he died in my hands. Boy, was THAT a wild ride?!?!

My man, if you say this, prepare to be pelted. Then you'll need a funeral yourself, where everyone else will say the same thing.

I'm gonna need a funeral because I laughed so hard at this list.

I've read this a dozen times, but I still love the whole list - one of the best on the site, PW! God bless.

2 That's quite a small coffin for quite a fat tub!

Oh, this is so bad. I love tubby men - they're so cuddly! Please don't let anyone say this in my earshot, or I'll give them one of my stares. You've been warned!

That would be hilariously awkward and mean all at the same time.

3 Ah, who's hungry?

That's horrible! If something like that happened, I guess I would snicker a little, but I bet everyone close to the deceased would be bawling their eyes out!

If he choked or was poisoned, then you ought to shut your trap.

Especially bad if they've left the coffin open.

4 He looks so peaceful... you'd never know he's burning in Hell right now.

That's what people were saying at Osama bin Laden's funeral.

I know who to say this to the next time one of my enemies dies!

This is what people were saying at Charles Manson's funeral.

5 Who died?

Anyone who says this is either really drunk or really high at a funeral!

That is the rudest thing you can say at a funeral, ever.

I think I've said this at a funeral before.

6 Do you think he'll turn into a zombie and jump out of the casket?

That would be so scary if it actually happened.

If that happens, everyone will feel happy, right?

I hope someone says this at my funeral.

7 Now he's dead, I guess I can chat up his wife sometime.

If his wife's there, prepare for her to charge at you with a longsword and swiftly rearrange your intestines.

What if he was a widower, or he wasn't married?

Sorry, but I'm cracking up at this!

8 Should I perform an exorcism?

God have mercy for that comment.

9 At least they went out with a bang

Really inappropriate if that person died in an explosion.

10 I didn't think it would take him that long to die

This is really mean! Who would say this?

You're waiting for someone to die?

The Contenders
11 He kinda deserved it, really.

I wouldn't mind if this were said at Peter Scully's funeral because he really deserves to be dead.

This is what people were saying at John Wilkes Booth's and Lee Harvey Oswald's funerals.

That has to be the comment to make the family as angry as possible.

12 Allahu Akbar!
13 Can we speed this up? I've got jazzercise at three.

Oh, just imagine some obnoxious teen like that at a funeral.

14 Please don't stop the music!
15 How much longer is this funeral?
16 Cause you know I'm all about that bass

I actually read this in Meghan Trainor's voice.

17 I put the fun in funeral!
18 You're all sad and uptight now, but within a week, you won't notice a thing!
19 Think about it this way that's one less funeral for you to worry about
20 If you want, I can predict who's next! Or just step right up and I'll speed it up!
21 Nobody liked him
22 Ha that's what you get bitch, I hated you my whole life
23 Where's the food, I thought this funeral was catered
24 Time to watch some porn
