As for tombstones, I like what I've picked, borrowed from from Herbalife (my wife hates it!):
"Lose Weight Now.... Ask Me How"


I love it!
A nice mix of pop skewering, and the classic memento mori.

Our family tomb reads
MISCE STULTITIAM CONSILIIS BREVEM DVLCE EST DESIPERE IN LOCO
— Horace (56-08 BC)
"Mix a little foolishness with your wisdom: it's good to be silly at the right moment."
No prize for guessing who picked it.
