Weirdly Fascinating And Bizarre Gravestones From Around The World

When commemorating the dearly departed, a lot of tough decisions have to be made. Do you want a life-sized sculpture of your loved one's likeness? Or perhaps an elaborately engraved epitaph? Plenty of family members have made some strange gravestone choices, and there are cemeteries full of those commemorated forever with some seriously weird tombstones, headstones, and grave markers.

From zombie outbreak prevention cages to some creepy skeletons - and more than a few strange and almost too human statues - what some of these people have chosen to mark their gravesites is slightly questionable. Sure, some of the graves are sweet and touching - including angels and personal monuments - but others are simply unorthodox.

Which tombstones seemed most strange to you? Vote up the odd memorials you think are the weirdest, and see if your favorite makes it to the top of the list. These are the creepiest, funniest, and downright weirdest graves this side of the Internet, and we hope these folks are resting in peace, despite the cows and sharks marking their final resting spots.
