Wal-Mart Wants You Dead, So They Can Have Your Money
Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, is getting into the funeral business. Sort of.
The company has begun selling caskets and urns on it's Web site at a prices so low, many funeral homes will probably go out of business. OK, not out of business, but people will provide their own caskets, flowers, etc. and have the funeral home take care of the rest.
Wal-Mart says it wants its customers to plan ahead and is offering the caskets on interest-free payment plans.
So, the next time you're looking around for a lamp, you may want to pick up a casket, too.
