Some Cell Phone Fans Being Buried With Their Mobiles

You Can't Take it With You, but you Can Get Buried With It
It's quite common for someone's family to include a treasured memento with a loved one when they're buried, whether it be a piece of jewelry, a note, or some other trinket that was important to them. So, it should probably come as no surprise that this day and age, when everyone seems to spend all day either talking or texting, that trinket is increasingly some sort of cell phone.

Yes, we love to hate them in the living world, but many are choosing to take their mobile addictions to the afterlife by requesting that they be buried with whatever their current handset of choice is. Some families even send them under with fully-charged batteries so that they can receive calls from beyond the dead. To top it all off, there's a report of a frequent Bluetooth headset-wearer (a.k.a. a "Bluetooth guy") getting buried with his earpiece in.

We're not sure how we feel about encouraging gratuitous Bluetooth usage among the living or the dead, but with many people being more attached to their handsets than their pets, you can't blame their families for wanting to send people off with their gadgets -- if only to stop the things from ringing.
