JACK NICHOLSON WANTS TO BE PICKED APART BY VULTURES WHEN HE DIES!!


Saturday, October 30, 2010

Jack NicholsonJACK Nicholson is considering being picked apart by vultures when he dies.

The 73-year-old actor has become fascinated with the traditional sky burials carried out by some Native Americans which involve the deceased’s body being hung from a tree or wooden scaffold and being left for scavengers.

“I’ve had several ideas,” he said. “Once I thought it would be nice to be buried under a large statue that is at least ten meters high. Then I liked the nature of the Indians who haul their bodies up into the trees so that they are eaten by the birds.”

Although Nicholson is undecided about the fate of his remains, one thing he is certain about is he does not want to be laid to rest in a coffin.

“I will probably end up in a crematorium as I’m too claustrophobic for a coffin,” he said.

Even though he’s been thinking about his funeral, Nicholson insists he isn’t scared of death and feels as though he has achieved everything he wanted to in his life.

The Oscar winner — who starred in The Bucket List with Morgan Freeman, about two terminally ill patients who escape from a cancer ward to fulfil their remaining life ambitions — said, “I remember a wonderful conversation I once had with my fellow actor John Gielgud. He said he had made a schedule with things he would like to do before he dies… travel the entire world, learn how to cook, but he found that nothing was as appealing as acting. I agreed with him.”

Native Americans would have sky burials because they believe after death the souls of the dead lingered in the air and watched over the tribe until it was time for their soul to move on to the afterlife.

By raising the bodies up high the belief was the soul could exit its’ mortal constraints faster.

    I’d like my corpse to be dropped out of an airplane from 30,000 feet. I’d like to land in a suburb somewhere.

    @Biff LOL that is classic dark humor fantastic made me really laugh.
    @Michael Her what Nicholson is really one of the best comedians of all time simply because he understands that being him is what makes him funny!! Screws loose? What

    Now my opinion on me:
    I want to be cast off in space with a tracer on me so they know how far someone can actually get before they are no longer there as in disintergrate)

    or maybe put inside of a sutif of armour with tiny holes and dropped off into ocean so fish slowly eat what remains make there way out!

    Peace,

    I’m with jack.Way too claustrophobic for the traditional way.John Prine says it best in saterically humorous way. Like the man says,please don’t bury me………….

  • antandhogfood

    I want to be buried naked with no coffin in a shallow grave next to a fire ant colony. After my flesh has been eaten by insects I’d like my bones exhumed and fed to a wild hog. Then feed the hog the ants before the hog is slaughtered and turned into hot dogs.

    The circle of life is beautiful.

  • FEAST
