For those who have everything: Holy Smoke LLC's shotgun shells

Holy Smoke LLC packs its customers’ cremated remains into shotgun shells.

Holy Smoke LLC has one of the best origin stories you’ll ever hear. Some years before the Alabama firm began offering to pack its customers’ cremated remains into shotgun shells, one of its two co-founders revealed that enjoying such a sendoff was his dream. “I will rest in peace,” he told his friend, “knowing that the last thing that one turkey will see is me—screaming at him at about 900 feet a second.” Each customer’s ashes, once divided, fill 100 rifle cartridges or 250 shot shells. And “should you decide that you don’t want to pump slugs full of Grandpa into the local fauna all at once,” you can have the ammo delivered in a “mantle-worthy” wooden box.
