Australian undertaker to offer beer-as-you-bury service

SYDNEY (AFP) - An Australian undertaker is reportedly offering a beer-as-you-bury service to take some of the sting out of bereavement.

The company in Melbourne is introducing a minibus -- complete with a mini-bar, coffee and a DVD player -- in which up to 12 mourners can ride with the coffin to the cemetery, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Managing director Martin Tobin said the concept may not suit all families.

"But for those who want to be together and travel with the deceased, particularly those with large families, it is a good option for them."

The new service could be popular with the Vietnamese, Chinese and Italian communities, Tobin said.

And it only costs a grand to hire. Reckon you'd do better spending the money on the wake.

It'd be popular with the Irish too, wouldn't it? Isn't the difference between an Irish wedding and an Irish funeral one person?
