Fake/Joke Newspaper Write Your Own Obituary
(you know you want to) Just to See Who Cries
Otherwise known as your "Get Out of Christmas Free" card
You know how hard it is to find a TRULY unique gift. Well, now you've found one. Representing some of the finest, most outrageous entertainment you'll ever find for pocket change.
You'll receive multiple copies (3 copies when ordering "small" page format, or 1 copy of the "large" selection). You do NOT have to supply your photo (same price either way). The backs of each article are covered in generic, unrelated text to complete the look and feel of absolute authenticity. "Pocket clippings" are torn from the sheet to look as though they're torn from a real newspaper---which they are! Other formats are printed life-size on individual sheets. Our articles will fool virtually anyone. You'll keep these for years in scrapbooks and picture albums, you'll send them to relatives, friends, co-workers, ex-friends and victims, and you'll never again have so much fun for lunch money!
Don't wanna buy presents for your cousin's demon-seed kids? Then DIE! Just tell 'em you're dead. Nothing says "You ain't gettin' nothing from me" like a death certificate, or, in this case, the next best thing -- an official newspaper announcement of your untimely demise. Avoid that whole ugly Chevy Chase Christmas debacle by simply CHECKING OUT. No more bothersome holiday cards from relatives you barely know and friends you barely like. Just step off the planet. Who the Hell are they going to bitch at? You, the "dead one"? This shuts them up and leaves them no recourse. ....Makes a "handsome gift" for your enemies, too (let's 'em know you're thinking of them always).
THIS IS YOUR OBITUARY---OR SEND IT TO A FRIEND WHO NEEDS TO WAKE UP AND SLOW DOW, STOP SMOKING, GO ON THE WAGON, ETC.
THIS SELECTION INSERTS YOUR OWN, PERSONALLY-WRITTEN OBITUARY INTO A FAKE / JOKE NEWSPAPER (WHICH IS ACTUALLY A REAL NEWSPAPER, PRINTED ONE COPY AT A TIME). IF YOU ORDER THE "WHOLE" SIZE (YOU GET TWO COPIES), THE OBIT GOES ON THE BACK PAGE IN A SECTION WITH OTHER OBITUARIES AND MISC. PERSONAL-TYPE ADS, AND THE FRONT OR "HEADLINE" PAGE OF THE PAPER IS FILLED WITH GENERIC STUFF (I.E., STOCKS GO UP, STOCKS GO DOWN, THE PRESIDENT DOES THIS, THE PRESIDENT DOES THAT, ETC.).
IN THE "FULL" VERSION (YOU GET THREE COPIES), THE OBIT GOES ON THE MIDDLE-RIGHT SIDE OF THE PAGE, IN-LINE WITH A DOZEN OR MORE OTHER OBITS. SHOWN IS THE "FULL" SIZE THAT COULD BE INSERTED INTO A REGULAR NEWSPAPER, OR JUST MAILED AS-IS TO THOSE FORMER IN-LAWS IN OHIO WHO YOU DON'T WANT TO BE RUDE TO, BUT YOU'D REALLY RATHER THEY STOPPED SENDING YOU CHRISTMAS CARDS.
PICTURES ARE NOT GENERALLY USED IN THIS SELECTION, THOUGH YOU MAY INCLUDE ONE IF YOU LIKE.
NOTE: EVERY YEAR AROUND GRADUATION TIME WE RECEIVE ORDERS FOR THIS ARTICLE WHICH THE BUYER HAS ALTERED TO SUIT IN A WAY THAT DEPICTS THEIR SON OR DAUGHTER BEING KILLED IN A HORRENDOUS CRASH IN WHICH SOME INTOXICATED TEENAGER WAS DRIVING. THEIR THOUGHT IS TO HAVE THE KID READ THE ARTICLE, WHICH DESCRIBES THEIR OWN DEATH, JUST BEFORE THEY HEAD OUT TO THE GRADUATION PARTY OR THE PROM. HOPEFULLY, IT SHOCKS THEM JUST A LITTLE....AND SIX HOURS LATER, WHEN THAT SAME KID IS BEING INVITED TO STEP INTO A CAR WITH A DRIVER WHO'S "ONLY HAD A FEW", THIS NASTY ARTICLE WILL RISE TO THE SURFACE OF THEIR CONSCIOUSNESS, AND THEY'LL DECLINE, AND THEY'LL STAY ALIVE. IF YOU HAVE ANY PERSONAL STORIES ABOUT THIS TACTIC WORKING, PLEASE FORWARD THEM TO US AND IF SUITABLE, WE'LL POST THEM HERE.
HOW TO STOP A STALKER:
THIS ALSO WORKS WELL TO MAKE THAT HALF-PSYCHO, STALKER OF A BOYFRIEND MOVE ON TO OTHER VICTIMS!

Looked very real and my friend love it
The product was great however I ordered on a Saturday for two day shipping.
It was my first time ordering something like this online, i suspected it at first, having no one to rely if it is just like what they advertise. But this morning, I just received my order, 2 days after purchasing. It's been a great deal with you guys, the obituary news legitimate. :)
Almost passed out on this! My boyfriend gave this fake obituary newspaper as a "PRANK" for our birthday together. What's worse is that he even used my credit card to pay for this cunning prank. Although, I gotta say this looks genuine, I didn't even notice it was fake. This is coming from a person who reads the news on newspapers everyday.
What better way to prank your annoying aging neighbors? Put them in an obituary! :))) We have this certain neighbor we've despised for months now, we know they're avid fans of the Connecticut post, so we anonymously dropped the newspaper in their doorstep, next thing we know, they're panicking and calling.. welp, whoever they're calling.
