The Monday Menagerie: Bookish Burials II

Our first Bookish Burials menagerie featured book-themed tombstones currently available for purchase ("Die now -- while supplies last!"). This one highlights the gravestones of famous authors, specifically those with a humorous and/or demented bent. Enjoy!

Robert Frost's eternal last words: "I had a lover's quarrel with the world."

Charles Bukowski's cheery cheerio: "Don't try."

Two faux epitaphs from Kurt Vonnegut, courtesy of Slaughterhouse-Five.

Okay, so Harvey Comics founder Alfred Harvey's tombstone is neither humorous nor demented, but you've gotta admit, if you were to stumble across it while walking through an otherwise somber graveyard, it would surely make you smile. (Photo via: Cartoon Brew)
