When I die, I hope I’m remembered for more than my taste in plants.
Maybe Eleanor Crum was a panda.
Actually, “Bamboo” was the name of a Thai Prostitute. And man, that cat knew how to par-tay.
Donny who loved bowling.
Wow, she lived 95 years… maybe she ate bamboo?
I think I’m related to this unknown person… maybe? *goes to find family tree*
Hey, she lived 95 years. Maybe there is something to that bamboo.
and she died doing what she loved
Why do we keep letting the pandas decide what goes on people’s headstones? This is the 317th in a row that simply says “she loved bamboo”. I mean did they even do thier research? Honestly pandas, i love you, but if you don’t get your $#!7 together, you can’t drink anymore of my wine.
Hey, it’s more descriptive than “beloved father/mother/sister/brother/etc.” Most people are beloved by someone. Not everyone appreciates bamboo.
Is this in the botanical garden in San Francisco? That sign seems familiar.
that’s the Big Bam Boo
…and she died doing what she loved
I’m guessing this sign is actually near some bamboo. I THINK that’s what that plant is but I’m no expert.
that green stalk MIGHT be bamboo but the leafy things around it sure as heck aren’t bamboo…
Love the site but gotta call FAIL on this one. Obviously this is not where the late Mrs. Crum has been laid to rest, someone made a donation in her name and got a placard in front of a bamboo sprout for her, probably in the SF Botanical Garden as previously mentioned, looks familiar to me too. I am sure Mrs. Crum has a proper headstone at her actual place of rest. Like I said great site, usually full of win, but swing and miss on this one, not odd at all.
It’s obviously a post-mortem, She loved bamboo, and it eventually killed her
What made you think this was her actual resting place? It’s OBVIOUSLY a placard donated in her memory. Also, how is it not odd? I’ve never seen a memorium that simply says “She loved bamboo.” I think it’s fricking hilarious.
its actually from the botanical gardens in hawaii near hilo.
yes, a donation.
but still, wtf?
Maybe this Eleanor just wanted something simple, and this might be relevant in some way to her job or something??
It sort of reminds me of “She loved ‘E!!!’….And she hated water!!” o_o
First time my partner and I saw that sign after moving here we cracked up for an hour. 3 years later and it’s still our running joke. So glad it made it to OS. 🙂
After 95 years of life, I’d like to be remembered for something special, like the weird chest-honk-laugh I sometimes did spontaneously, or the way I jumped every time I sneezed while standing up. Or, y’know, the obscenely large inheritance I left my daughter after becoming so rich that I regularly lost BMWs in the couch.
Bamboo… not so much.
At least she wasn’t a panda. (I assume.) That would make the remembrance mind-blowingly mundane.
Beloved panda Eleanor will be sorely missed.
Actually, this is rather cute. I can’t really laugh maliciously at this one, but I can giggle bittersweetly.
Well, compared to many other types of wood, bamboo is certainly stiffer and stronger.
@Derek: no… it’s hollow and thin = breaks very easily.
