New Business Service Down Under

This is too bizarre to not directly quote:

Sydney – An
Australian undertaker is offering a beer-as-you-bury
service to take some of the sting out of bereavement, a Sydney
newspaper reported on Thursday. The company in Melbourne is introducing
a minibus – complete with a
mini-bar, coffee and a DVD player – in which up to 12 mourners can ride
with the coffin to the cemetery, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.
Managing director Martin Tobin said the concept may not suit all
families. “But for those who want to be together and travel with the
deceased,
particularly those with large families, it is a good option for them.”
The new service could be popular with the Vietnamese, Chinese and Italian communities, Tobin said.
