A cell phone gravestone

The deceased, we assume, liked to gab on his cell phone. Or was it her cell phone? All we know is that he or she, of blessed memory, has been laid to rest beneath a gravestone shaped like a cell phone.

A photo of said mobile-phone stone, published on the site Engadget, inspired a series of creative captions. Among our favorites:

• The "reception" after the funeral was great...

• Ironically, the shot was taken with a camera phone, rendering the tombstone illegible.

• I hope he is not paying roaming charges.

• I wonder if they can hear him now?

• He's on hold.
