This amazing painting featuring a group of seven of the most well-known Fast Food Mascots at a funeral was spotted by me at an arts and crafts street fair in Chicago. They are clearly serving as pallbearers and you can see that the coffin says “Monsanto,” the notorious chemical company. But, what does it all mean? The painting is clearly mounted in an up-cycled window frame, and the rows of towering palm trees in the background indicates that the location is southern California. I neglected to note the artist’s name, so if anyone has a clue as to who painted this, and what it is all about, please leave that information in the comments! Thank you, Drive Through!

In some regions of Ghana, it is typical for the shape and style of a coffin to make a personal statement by reflecting the profession, interests, or characteristics of the deceased. The mother of many children, for example, might have a coffin in the shape of a hen with chicks. In this case it is a Nike sneaker, a symbol of status and modernity in the late 20th century. As people make the transition from one world to the unknown next, an object (a coffin) representing another object (in this case, a shoe) provides comforting familiarity.
Coffin in the Form of a Sneaker (1990) by Paa Joe was Photographed in the Brooklyn Museum.

J&D Foods, the makers of delicious Baconaise (it’s Kosher) and Bacon Salt (I own it) have thrown down the gauntlet with the launch of their new Bacon-themed coffin! It’s not actually made of bacon (because that would be just weird, right?) but it is painted in a lovely Bacon-esque design of brown and gold bacony stripes. Seriously, look at the sheen on this thing! It looks like a new car! The Bacon Coffin is sweet ride to the afterlife indeed!

I’m a huge fan of The Amazing Race, because I enjoy watching teams of two people have mental/emotional breakdowns while racing for one million dollars on almost no sleep through countries where they don’t speak the language and can’t stomach the food. International travel! In the current season, you might recall that while the teams were in Ghana, they faced a challenge that involved carrying an elaborately hand-carved coffin through the city streets to a specific destination. The Pink Fish-shaped Coffin above is a perfect example of how clever and fancy the craftsmanship on these coffins can get. Sort of takes the phrase “sleep with the fishes” to a whole new level!
