One thing I look forward to in heaven is the absence of misogyny. We have no idea how much this sin has marred human life. It’s the foundation of abortion, for instance.
And now I see women can’t escape it, even in death. Currently for sale on eBay (click to enlarge)…
Here is a once in a lifetime and into eternity opportunity to spend your eternal days directly above Marilyn Monroe. This crypt in the famous Westwood Cemetery in West Los Angeles currently occupied above Marilyn Monroe is being vacated so as to make room for a new resident. “Spending Eternity next to Marilyn Monroe is too sweet to pass up”, recently quoted by Hugh Heffner, who has reserved his place in eternity next to her. The lucky bidder will be deeded a piece of real estate that he or she will make their last address. And below you will be Marilyn Monroe. In fact, the person occupying the address right now is looking face down on her.
Sick and sad. I want to say men are pigs, but women can also do it to themselves.
Here’s more, from CNBC, August 19:
One woman in Beverly Hills is selling her husband’s crypt, which just so happens to be above Marilyn Monroe’s, on eBay. The bidding started at $500k and is now at $4.5 million.
A standard crypt in this cemetery… currently goes for $250,000.
Of course, this one is special.
“Spend eternity directly above Marilyn Monroe,” the eBay… auction reads, touting it as a “once in a lifetime – and into eternity – opportunity.”
Elsie Poncher is selling the crypt, in which her husband currently resides, so she can pay off her $1.6 million Beverly Hills mansion and leave it to her kids when she dies, without them having to worry about how to pay for it.
Poncher, who’s been in the mansion for 50 years and just refinanced, has “somewhat recognized the fact that she’s going to run out of money in the next couple of years,” said Steve Miller, a real-estate broker and family friend who’s handling the sale of the crypt for the family.
Apparently, the husband, Richard Poncher, was a bit of an entrepreneur – and a well-connected one at that. He knew movie stars and mobsters, ballplayers and kings. As Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio divorced, he bought 2 crypts from DiMaggio, not knowing at the time how valuable they would really become after Monroe’s untimely death….
Playboy… octogenarian Hugh Hefner bought the crypt next to Monroe’s in 1992. He got it for a bargain at $75,000.
Poncher recalled… that, on his deathbed, her husband said: “If I croak, if you don’t put me upside down over Marilyn, I’ll haunt you the rest of my life!”
Poncher, amazingly, abided by her husband’s wishes.
So, for 23 years, he’s gotten a good look at Monroe. (Well, as good a look as you can get through a marble-and-concrete tomb.) Now, the jig is up – Poncher’s going to have his remains moved to the crypt next door. When she dies, she’ll be cremated and join him in there….
Poncher thinks if her husband “was alive today, this is exactly what he would suggest she do,” Miller explained….
