Epitaphs on headstones do not always have to serious and bland. You or your loved one's personality can be conveyed with a witty, funny or creative epitaph on their headstone. If you are struggling for ideas for either a saying you want placed on your headstone or the perfect one for a loved one, looking back on some of the funniest and most creative epitaphs around may help to give you some ideas.
Well This Sucks
