A Present for one who has Passed?

So, I was doing some Xmas shopping at Overstock.com, and I just took a browse through their "health and beauty section" only to find a selection of items for the...less than healthy.

Half off casket, anyone?

Whoa, what?! I mean... I was just looking for like a gift basket of, you know, hand soap and moisturizers. That really caught me off guard. Caskets are pretty much the last thing I would expect to find under health or beauty.

Does anyone else find it particularly morbid that someone would go shopping online for something like this? I mean, especially Overstock.com. That is so bizarre to me. First of all, the logistics of having something so massive shipped...Second, really? Overstock? Where exactly did these come from and how can they have an over abundance of caskets? I guess people aren't dying fast enough. We gotta put these babies on clearance!

Anyways, I think I'll stick to shopping at like shanalogic.com where I know I won't find anything disturbing. Althouuuughh....50% off is a great deal! As Allyson said, "it gives Black Friday a whole new meaning." Hmm. How do you decide on a product that isn't going to get any customer reviews?

Caskets are, in general, the last thing most people find.
