A Name that Works... Sort Of


Somebody out there should really compose a theme song for WTF Wednesday. There's Hit 40's banner, there's Otin's vlog... the song can't be far behind.

But today for WTF Wednesday I'd like to address.....

A Name that Works... Sort of

Today's WTF Wednesday winner is....


The Amigone Funeral Home in Buffalo, New York


I performed the perfect WTF double take when I was in Buffalo, taking Vlad out for lunch one day. Amigone? Are you freakin' kidding me? I sure as hell hope you're gone before they embalm you.

If that's not a reason to say WTF, I don't know what is. Just sayin'...


P.S. And, yes, this is a real place... click on the Amigone link above to begin pre-planning for your demise.

I wonder if that's a family name or the owner has a wicked sense of humor?

Oh My Goddess said...

Amidead? Is their toughest competitor.

Nanodance said...

In response to Peach Tart, I think both.

JC said...

I'm sorry ... I would have been laughing.
I always do that at the wrong moments ...

CatLadyLarew said...

Peach Tart: I'm hoping both!

Blog Goddess: If you have to ask, I'm guessing not in either case.

Nanodance: Agreed

JC: I laugh at awkward moments... that's why nobody invites me anywhere anymore.

ReformingGeek said...

I don't know. Are you? Oh, wait. The dead can't answer.

Weird.

Jayne Martin said...

That's hysterical. They must be a fun group to be dead around.

Janice said...

That is a scream! I think I love WTF Wednesdays. Keep it comin'...

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

Took me a second...but hell yeah that works!!

Me-Me King said...

Bwahahahahaha! HiLaRiOuS!!!

I love this! In my hometown there was Rump Mortuary. Every time we'd pass (no pun intended) my dad would always say, "Now that's where they send the real asses".

Bird Shit and Baby Caca said...

Best. Name. Ever.

Maelstrom said...

Whaaa? no way that's real.

AmyLK said...

So FUNNY! Love WTF Wednesdays!

Scott Free said...

Wow that is hilarious. Amigone. That has to be from a surrealist novel. Keep 'em comin', Catlady!

Sniffles and Smiles said...

Absolutely hilarious!!!! Thanks for the great laugh!!! ~Janine XO

CatLadyLarew said...

Reffie: Obviously, only Zombies can answer that question.

Jayne: Yeah, it's always fun to hang out with dead people.

Janice: I'd be screaming if the corpse actually asked out loud.

Lee: Imagine me snorting as I'm driving down the busy street with Vlad asking what's wrong!

Me-Me: Rump Mortuary! Where they take the real asses! Love it!

Birdy/Baby: There also used to be a place here in Rochester called Serenity Hills'... with the apostrophe. I couldn't figure out if it was a chick named Serenity who ran the place or the location of where they were going to stash the bodies. But I think they got closed down for selling body parts. Seriously!

Maelstrom: WAY!

Amy: Made you laugh! *points index finger*

Scotty: Surreal, but true!

Janine: My pleasure!

nonamedufus said...

Hey, if you have to ask, you must be... Do they have an affiliated crematorium...Amidoneyet?

CatLadyLarew said...

noname: Amidoneyet? Most definitely!

Hit 40 said...

AMI God!! Wow!! Please do not have my funeral there!!! PLEASE!!!

...I had never pondered making sure that my family had a list of acceptable funeral homes.

Donna said...

LMAO! That is so funny! Amigone,Amidoneyet! HA,HA,HA! Make sure they marinate first. LMAO!

otin said...

AMIGONE!!!!!!! hahahaha!

Hope said...

I used to WTF Wednesday...why did I forget this cool little ditty?

CatLadyLarew said...

Eileen: I wouldn't want to have my funeral there either... unless maybe if I was going for a circus theme.

Donna: Would you like the honey-mustard or the lemon garlic marinade?

Otin: You are gonna be SO gone!

Hope: WTF Wednesday is always good for a laugh or two!

Hit 40 said...

I must be getting old because pre planning my funeral sounds like a good idea. I want to be cremated and disposed of in a big mac box!!!

K a b l o o e y said...

HAH! Do they sell T-shirts? Because they really should. Good for you for whipping out the camera; I'm always camera-less or driving and too lazy to double back when I have those moments.

Phillipia said...

That is awesome! I love WTF Wednesday!
Word verification: intry....hopefully not into amigone yet...

Leeuna said...

Hilarious. This can't be a coincedence. Can it?
Wonder if they provide humorous tombstone engravings or trick coffins.

Leeuna@ My Mind Wandered

Brian Miller said...

hahaha. love it. and OMGs competitor comment.

CatLadyLarew said...

Hit 40: I'm sorry, I'm not sure if Amigone has a crematorium.

K a b l o o e y: That would be great... they could have a Zombie on the front and their logo on the back!

Phillipia: Perfect for WTF Wednesday!

Leeuna: I'd buy a trick coffin... I could keep it in my livingroom... what a conversation piece! And a wonderfully dark place to take a nap during the day.

Brian: That dufus always has a witty comeback!

Alli said...

Interesting. I am asking myself all kinds of questions like, is it really pronounced Am-I-Gone, or is it more like am-igg-on-ee? I am quietly hoping for the latter. Also, where on earth did you find this?

CatLadyLarew said...

Alli: I actually drove by this place in Buffalo... it really exists!

Alli said...

CatLadyLarew: How crazy! I was thinking maybe there was a database of "strangely-named businesses" or something.
