Dad jokes and wordplay abound in this comic fake cemetery.
On the back roads of southwestern Oklahoma is the town of Granite, the latest home of the Comecos Cemetery a collection of fake headstones (made of real stone) with epitaphs that range from the silly to the goofy to the groan-inducing.
“I told you I was sick.”“If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.” “Here lies John Yeast / Pardon me for not rising.”
The funny cemetery was originally created by a veterinarian and his wife, Dan and Eleanor Roberts, at their home and clinic in Wichita Falls, Texas. After he retired, the “cemetery” was temporarily moved to Iowa Park, Texas. He later decided to relocate it to Granite in Oklahoma, the town where the headstones originated from. The site was dedicated there on November 4, 2006.
