Death is pretty horrible, and something that really sucks to think about. Few people want to think about the death of a loved one, or their own death.

It’s just something that is never funny, right? WRONG. Death can be pretty funny, especially for those of us with a dark sense of humor. People dying ironic deaths, or falling prey to the most ridiculously absurd circumstances. It’s hard not to to laugh when you hear that someone died from things like drowning in a puddle or laying in a hammock. LIKE WUT?!

Sorry if this comes off insensitive, but there are bound to be others out there that find these 19 deaths pretty hilarious. I mean, come on, if home girl goes swimming in Africa and gets eaten by a Crocodile, you gotta think that’s pretty amusing. Okay, cool, I hear you, I’m a b*tch, get over it.. hell, I have.

These 19 deaths are actually pretty hilarious:


A neighbor died on the job while operating the “oven” (as he called it) at the crematorium while a body was being cremated. He used to joke that one day he’d “make an ash of himself.”




One morning, a group of friends and I were having breakfast. I was making pancakes in the kitchen. Now our group was rather outspoken, except for one (let’s call him Ben) who’s usually quiet and keeps to himself. Well, this morning, he decides to finally open up to us. He clears his throat, we all look at him, and he says “when I was 12, my girlfriend died.” I heard from the other room & just say “that’s awful!” because I can’t understand the awkward silence from the rest of my friends. It was only later in the day that I learn he finished his sentence with “When I was 12, my girlfriend died in a hammock accident.” To this day we have never brought it up again. But boy, was it hard not to laugh. How awful!


My cousin was gored to death by his pet bull. I thought my mom was joking when she told me (she was in shock and not at all emotional). I took me WAY longer than it should have to realize she was serious.
