I love when people put in their hard earned money and do something absurdly funny. That too when they know that none of that money is coming back!! These people are true epitomes of altruism. Just for that one laugh!! one laugh from general public.
Latest, I saw this example of altruism when some people in Germany started a TV channel that can be called FUNERAL TV. Actually the channel is called Etos TV. The channel is going to show videos of the dead. (What?!!!). And by dead, they don’t mean Addam’s Family. As was said on Broadband TV news:
Family members can show pictures and video clips of a deceased person with an appropriate text for a fee of €2,000.
Other Etos programming will include documentaries about ‘beautiful cemeteries’ with music to match the pictures. It will also broadcast documentaries on related matters
“Documentaries on ‘Beautiful Cemeteries’ with a music to match.”. I have a question here; Music is going to match the word beautiful or the word cemetery. And also documentaries on related matters. Now what are those supposed to be. “Related Matters!!!” I have some ideas for the channel.
1) Documentaries on tombstone art.
2) A kids program called “Tombstone Island” or “Grave Hunt”
3) “Celtic Cemetery” sounds cool (remember music to match).
4) Reality TV show where group of people are left in cemeteries and the are supposed to find way out of it!!
