• A company based in Alabama has devised a way to cremate gun and hunting lovers and turn the ashes into ammunition so they can be shot off for the ultimate send off. Thad Holmes and Clem Parnell, the proprietors of Jyly Holy Smoke LLC, have had only two clients thus far, but are confident business will pick up. “It’s about celebrating life,” Holmes, a 16-year state conservation officer, said on Friday. “We know how strange it sounds to people who aren’t comfortable around guns, but for those who are, it’s not weird at all.” Nope. Not weird at all. [Yahoo!]
