a question that has plagued horrordom...

Who the frig paid for this?

In related news, that's the worst excuse for a graveyard I've ever seen.

It's pretty established Fanon that Jason's dad, Elias, paid for both Pamela's and Jason's graves. And until a movie comes out and challenges that presumption, I'm buying it.

Does that mean that that's what the fans assume? I see. I've never really gotten into the F13 fandom. In moviedom, though, it's just kind of THERE, isn't it? I don't know. It's weird.

And no matter what, that graveyard sucks!

Brilliant. Just brilliant. Never contemplated that.

But still, it beats Bill the Butcher's grave. Talk about ghetto...

Pamela wasn't ever one for future planning until the death of her boy. Then she became quite fixated on such things. After all, you never know when that reign of terror on sex-crazed teens might abruptly end. So why not by one of those plots the door-to-door fellas were selling back then.

Sounds good right? Better than picturing Jason stopping by the funeral home with a wad of bloody cash. Although, that could explain how Pamela ended up with such a lame plot. Sack-heads are so easily hustled.

I like to imagine that she was such an important member of the community that everyone chipped in. And they put her in the worst cemetary possible as punishment for the craziness.

Hahaha, love it! Is that like, 5 feet from the road, on the way to Camp Crystal Lake or something? I wouldn't put it past them.

Stacie Ponder said...

It is RIGHT on the side of the road, a couple of feet from the tar, not fenced in. You know, the way all graveyards are.

It's kind of a crap tombstone, though, isn't it? It might as well be inscribed "PAMELA VOORHEES. WHATEVER."

I believe the new owners of the property known as Camp Crystal Lake, paid for the stone, in honor of Mrs. Voorhees' years of faithful service.

It was scheduled to be a multi-family graveyard, with a prime location. There were plans to turn the camp into a vacation spot for people who have a need for peaceful rest ;-)

All these plans were canceled when the owners were attacked and butchered on a lonely stretch of road in west Texas.

Does that say 'At Best'? Like they had to guess on the dates or the name - maybe below that they should've chiseled (sorry).

Stacie Ponder said...

Robson, you're right- it's totally the economy super saver headstone.

Also, Topsyjane...it actually says "At Rest", but I like yours better. Or maybe

1930 - 1979

that tombstone is waaaay bigger than her head.

Tony Wilson said...

It's bigger than her head but smaller than her teeth.

Ulrich said...

Maybe someone will eventually take it to their own home? You know, just to spice up the bedroom a little.

The Floating Red Couch said...

Ulrich's statement is the best thing I've seen all day

What a tasteful, elegant and understated headstone. Just what Mrs V would have wanted. She was a real no-frills kinda lady.
