The 23 Most Inappropriate Things To Happen At A Funeral


“My father was married 4 times. I believe the two that he honestly loved the most were the first, my mother, and the last, his widow.” Said by my uncle with all ex 3 wives in the audience.


My mom was singing at the funeral of someone she didn’t even know and her phone started blasting “Thriller” until she could dig it out of her purse.


The priest said the complete wrong name at my mothers funeral within the first 5 mins…..Then he said it wrong again. It was at this point my brother stood up and yelled at the priest in a packed funeral. No one in my family steps foot in that church anymore.
