Scanlan Artist Joe Scanlan created a DIY guide (subtitled “How to kill yourself anywhere in the world for under $399”) for a coffin made of the components from three pieces of IKEA furniture. The fully illustrated book retails for $27.50 shipped (some assembly required). The assembled project includes flower stands, pictured above. [via] Link.

    You can buy a ready made steel coffin, one of the fanciest available, for $275. Just search for “funeral scam” and you will find several dealers, along with tons of advice on how to avoid getting ripped off by typical undertakers.
