As I understand it, the “ashes” are mostly a human skeleton. The funeral parlor grinds it up afterwards. Hmmm, I wonder if the teeth survive the fire.
Hey, wouldn’t the stainless steel hip replacements damage their grinder? Now THERE’S a great student summer job, picking over cremated bodies to remove the hard stuff before they’re ground to powder.
Dirty little secret: funeral parlors sell dental gold as an additional income stream. If you have a couple of hundred dollars worth of gold in your mouth, tell your family to request it be returned after you’re… done using it.
And those stupid crematorium owners from a few months back, the ones that saved money on gas bills by ditching the bodies in the woods? I wonder if they were still pulling the teeth and selling the gold.
If you have heart surgery with artificial valve replacement, can you save money if you buy a “used engine” rather than parts? :)Hey, you could go to the above crematorium and search their back lot for used parts. After all, all the junkers are the same model!
