    A 12 year-old friend of mine shouted PENIS at our teacher's funeral. Everyone went quiet, and he was escorted from the church by his parents. We stopped being friends that day.

    Their Aunt Announced The Surprise She Put In Her Sister's Birthday Cake

    From Redditor /u/ooo-ooo-oooyea:

    My Grandma's funeral was a Polish Funeral, so we got wasted during the wake. My two aunts never got along, and my b*tchy aunt who lived with grandma was in one of her special moods that day. After some heavy drinking, and some arguing my aunt yells to the other aunt, "Now that Grandma is dead you can use the [adult toy] I put in your birthday cake."

    Last wake I went to, instead of praying a guy aimed a fart at the dead body in the casket. I guess they knew each other well I assume.
