Fun things you will find at a cemetery

Cemeteries are funny places. Well, apart from all the wailing and death that is.

I mean, people usually go to a cemetery for one of two reasons; either to get rid of a body that would otherwise make the house smell if it were not buried quickly, or two, to take photos of angels and tombs and/or those wailing people like some gothic fetish.

Why do people have this morbid fascination of visiting cemeteries whenever they travel?

It’s not like you know anyone there… or do you? Now that Facebook says there are only 4.74 degrees of separation instead of 6.

Anyway I am one of those that loves visiting old cemeteries, not the new ones, they’re too boring.

Why do I like old cemeteries?

Well if you look hard enough you will be surprised about what you could dig up (no, don’t do that literally), and you never know what you will find around the next corner.

You could find an amazing statue of an angel or giant chubby fingers … but on this occasion I found the creature in the photo above. To me it looks like some tribal head with one of those tall ponytail things spouting out of the top. Maybe that’s because I’ve had too much coffee today.

What does it look like to you?

The photo was taken at the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is the same place where Evita is buried and I’m sure I saw Lenin’s grave there. Ah no, that must have been some other communist plot.

Final Thoughts…

Something totally random… I bet you have never come across any nasty people working at a cemetery, have you? Well, if you were unlucky enough to meet one, it was probably just a malignant tomber. (Sorry, couldn’t resist)

And for some fun…

I decided to add a speech bubble to the photo. What stupidity do you think the creature is saying?

Let us know in the comments.
