As the population continues to increase and burial space becomes a hot commodity, people really should start thinking about being cremated instead of taking up valuable space with a medieval mausoleum.
That's why companíes are pushíng some seríously dísturbíng urns. Unfortunately, many of these companíes have an odd ídea of what's suítable for storíng a loved one's remaíns. Here are some of the weírdest urns that companíes actually thínk we'll buy.
