SANTA FE, N.M. — An advertisement for a "slightly used coffin" raised eyebrows and the ire of some people.
The ad, posted Monday on a Facebook buy, sell and trade page, offered a "Slightly used coffin, only used once." The seller was asking $50 for the casket. A photo of a coffin with a discolored interior accompanied the ad.
The person who posted the ad told KRQE that it was just a joke to generate humorous comments.
The ad did succeed in generating comments, such as, "That's a screaming deal," and "We have to URN your trust first," KRQE reported.
KRQE reported that in New Mexico, it's not illegal to sell a used coffin, as long as the buyer is informed of its prior usage.
