I just had to laugh on Saturday, when Spencer and I made a Costco run for our bimonthly supply of toilet paper, Kleenex, and protein drinks.
For near the eye-glass department, I spotted a big display for caskets made by the Universal Casket Company.
Of course, something so at once commercial, yet esoteric, and found in a big-box store such as Costco no less, immediately piqued my interest.
So I whipped out my iPhone4, fired up my Hipstamatic app, and began firing away.
Here are some of my favorite shots.

The Universal Casket story!
The story of the Universal Casket Company is intriguing. According to website information, the fourth-generation company found itself ailing due to funeral-home consolidation and increased competition. So it took the next logical step. . .offering up caskets online through their own website or through Costco Wholesale.
Nice to know that Costco can take you from the cradle to the grave with the purchase of a Universal Casket. You even buy a pink-rose casket spray for $349 to decorate your loved one’s final resting place.
