Sorry man, I love adult humor, but unless you're ok with Suzie Homemaker getting in your face because her 9 year old kid is running around yelling "Hey wood Ya BLOW me!?!", I'd reconsider. I've had run-in's with rabid parents over much less.
I personally like "Edith & Adolph Mycock".
haha

You may be able to get the Ben Dover and ones that aren't sexual, and then to say you are joking, just throw in some random ones like Amanda Huginkiss and other ones that are very NON sexual.

In my opinion, you don't want to blatantly offend anyone, but at the same time. Because I personally believe people have gotten WAY too uptight and PC, I make a point to do things like using names like those on my stones. Most of the children don't notice, and most of the parents get a laugh. The way I see it, unless you are being blatantly rude,,,, "F' em if they can't take a joke.

It's alittle strange to me that we can hang up corpes skeletons, ghost, have people hanging from trees by the neck kicking, body parts laying around the yard, everything and anything to do with death and someone may be offended by whats on a tombstone.........crazy world........I say go for it!!!

Low brow humor Not OK. Go figure. I say go for it too.

I'd also like to thank Meltdown for posting a few I'd never heard before :D

Well now, the tide seems to be turning. Still haven't made up my mind totally on this yet. You see, when I first saw them at someone else's display, I thought they were hilarious, but I'm 41. My 14 year daughter old never gave them a second look. I personally think that the key is; to get the joke, you either have to say the name exactly as intended or pronounce it exactly as intended. Everything is spelled slightly off or you have to change the syllables. It took me awhile to figure out My Dixie Wrecked, and I know I have this twisted sense of humor!
Keep em comin'!

No tide... maybe do whatever in your neighborhood - see what happens. To me it's just trying to be a little responsible.

And yeah - I'm generally repulsed by mechanical people struggling to escape from a noose too. I think that degree is ridiculous.

But thats why we have first amendment rights! Sad thing is that all these kids get it - they are just too smart to admit it.

Hey there Bud,

We usually stick with the typical rhyming names and epitaphs for tombstones, but only the very short epitaphs. It's a pain centering and fitting large enough readable text on most any tombstones we have. Funny thing is I never actually saw kids read any of them, but the parents sure do. Since they are not home haunters, the epitaphs floating around on all these forums may be old to us, but parents around here get a real kick out of them. We'll be adding a number of new ones this year. May be something for you to consider.

Names that dont go over very well......Santa Clause with x-mas lights and a santa hat lying in front of the tombstone. Easter Bunny with rabbit ears on the top of stone. We put these names in the back yard only for our friends to see. Adults get a kick out of it!! BUT I am sure kids would be devastated.

well, I guess it depends on how well you know your neighbors, whether you like them or not, and how long your planning to live there:)
But if your second guessing yourself then maybe its a no.

Well, I put out of few of the less "offensive" ones. Ben Dover, Harry Bush, Ivana Naelya. Got a few shaking heads so far, but we had the homecoming parade go by the house yesterday and most comments were favorable......."Great job", "Love the yard", "Always the best house in the neighborhood" etc. I'll make some "normal" ones for next year, just don't have the time now..........but I will also make a nice one for Drew Peacock......I LOVE that one!!!!!!
