“A gravestone missing for almost 150 years was being used as a marble slab to make fudge”
This story, courtesy of CNN, shares how a gravestone had been returned to its rightful place after being missing for nearly 150 years. As it turns out the missing gravestone had been given a new purpose during its absence as someone was using it to make fudge on. Squiggy is baffled at a used gravestone being used in food preparation as he doesn’t like the idea of gravestone-flavored fudge. After steering the topic away from fudge, Laura and Squiggy discuss what they would like put on their gravestones. Predictably Squiggy wants a Disney-themed message on his grave, while Laura wants something wrestling-themed.
Squiggy references the following website when explaining his choice: https://hauntedmansion.fandom.com/wiki/Family_Plot
