Well, it's kinda good to know. If we go on vacation and visit China some day and come across a funeral procession I can explain to my wife and friends what that stripper is doing on the roof of that hearst.

What do strippers have at their funerals? Chinese food?

I thought that's what fire crackers were for.

Strippers makes for a bigger funeral, the more people attending = gives greater importance of the deceased. This doesn't seem like a very altruistic reason if one is using artificial methods to draw in more mourners.

However, it sounds like a fun way to go, so to speak.

Personally, I like a traditional New Orleans jazz band funeral procession

I'm going to swallow a big bag of popcorn kernels just before I die.

My cremation should be epic.
