Gay coffins? You’re kidding, right? On the other hand, why not?

Funeral directors in Germany are bidding for the pink pound – by launching coffins specially designed for gay customers.

The caskets feature homoerotic artwork on the outside and come with a series of tastefully luxurious plush designer interiors, say makers Mike Konigsfeld and Tom Brandl in Cologne, Germany.

The designers – who have lived together for more than 10 years – say the images of muscular young men in classical poses are the perfect way to send off a loved one.

They call it “Drive In Banking” but you’re doing it wrong

A Fort Myers (Florida) man who believed the CIA was trying to have him killed with radiation guns because of his YouTube rants about the nation’s banking system, slammed his green Honda into the front of a Naples bank Saturday night, according to police reports…

When police and firefighters arrived, they found (the driver) sitting inside his car, which was lodged 20 to 30 feet inside of the bank. He had driven through the double glass doors, past the reception desk, through a wall and into a conference room, Naples Fire Chief Steve McInerny said.

Pants on fire? Almost.

Firefighters say a southwest Portland (Oregon) man is lucky he escaped injury when he ran into his burning home to put on pants.

Portland firefighter Paul Corah says the homeowner…heard his smoke alarm going off as he stepped out of the shower at about 6 a.m. today.

He immediately ran out of the house, firefighters say. But once outside, the homeowner ran back into the home to grab a pair of pants, then went next door to ask his neighbors to call 911.
