Talk about making an entrance.
Megan Flaherty, a student at Pennsauken High School, decided not eschew the traditional prom entrance in limo or fancy car and instead showed up in a wooden coffin, complete with her own hearse. In the video that’s quickly going viral, Flaherty’s date Stephen Caldwell and family friend Dennis McGee are seen opening the back of a hearse and unloading a casket.
Doing her best Undertaker impression, Flaherty then rises out of the casket (holding flowers and wearing a bright blue dress) as fellow students watching burst into applause.The scene, though unusual by prom standards, actually makes sense because Flaherty hopes to become a funeral director after college.
“She just really took to it,” her mom Susan told NJ.com about her daughter’s career aspirations. “She thought it was an honorable thing and an honorable way to make a living.”
Flaherty’s brother, who does not plan on becoming a funeral director, was also at the prom. He did not arrive in a hearse. – SI.COM
I’m simultaneously worried and fascinated by this story. On the worried hand, this girl showed up to prom in a hearse and wooden coffin. Her date, who is probably wondering where it all went wrong, helped her out of the hearse along with a ‘family friend’ who I guess just does these type of things? On the fascinated hand I need to know everything about Megan Flaherty. Not only did she pull this stunt off, but she wants to be a modern day Paul Bearer and become a funeral director. I understand that’s a real job but it’s not one I would really think about as a future career choice. I just didn’t think people aspired to be funeral directors. Then along comes Megan Flaherty and turns my entire world upside down. What a world we live in.
Also, my favorite part about this article are the last two sentences. I guess we can’t all be funeral directors.
What’s better than a 5 hour trip to Atlantic City filled with conversations of porn and murder? A lot of things, but between the bizarre conversations and casual Journey sing alongs, I did learn a few things:
1. Highway service centers are the work.of the Devil. All walks of life congregating in one condensed rest stop is truly a recipe of disaster. By the the way, if you ever have an extra $42,000 and want your parents murdered, go to a bathroom stall at the New Haven rest stop.
2. You know those sayings “beer before liquor never been sicker”, “liquor before beer your in the clear”? When you drink as much as I did this weekend, it doesn’t matter what comes first.
3. When in doubt, start your day with a screwdriver. Orange juice for the vitamin C. Vodka for the day drunk.
5. I AM A DANCING MACHINE
Yesterday we got a sneak peak into the new Ben Stiller movie being released on Christmas Day, and today we get the official trailer for American Hustle, the latest film from Director David O. Russell. Russell goes to his bread and butter for this crime drama, calling on Amy Adams, Christian Bale (The Fighter) Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook). Bale and Adams play con artist partners in crime forced to work the FBI (Cooper) to take down other underworld scum. Their main target: Mayor Carmine Polito, played by Jeremy Renner. An all star cast paired up with one of my favorite directors? I can’t wait for December.
He was born James Gandolfini, but he’ll always be Tony Soprano to us. Fly away sweet prince, fly away and be free.
Lets play the hypothetical game: I give you $100,000 cash, and you can have anything you want in this world. What do you choose? A sweet car? Down payment on a new house? $100,000 worth of Taco Bell? How about a spot in heaven? That’s right, dangerously insane human beings have been bidding on an Ebay auction that offers the winning bidder a spot in heaven. The man who started this mind boggling bidding war, Ari Mandel, is actually an atheist who put his “spot in heaven” up for bid as a joke. You really can’t make this shit up. All religious mumbo jumbo aside, how fucking crazy do you have to be to bid $100 on this? Im gonna go with Amanda Bynes crazy mixed with serial killer crazy. Bidding $100,000!? That’s a level of crazy not even the crazy ants could fathom. Ebay has removed the post from its website, due to the fact that its fucking insane. What they need to do is release the names of these people who actually bid on this so we can get them on a private plane far far away where their psychotic brains can’t hurt anyone. Looney Tunes city.
