All of them seem too long. Americans are fat, so they're probably the right width.
It's a waste of wood.
And bathtubs aren't long enough!
Please, get real, get cremated. Who do people think they are? King Tut?
Cremation is the best way to go. Land is for the living. So many beautiful property given to the dead. Such a waste.
Natural burial is the most green, but it's not widely available, especially when you live in a big city.
R2's little friend will sit on him on the couch in his mother's basement watching TV until he starts to stink too much. Then they'll go over to Chip's mother's basement.

Well, if we chop off the legs after death, coffins and cemetary plots could be 1/2 as big. This could work out nicely.
The extra space can be useful for the deceased to have a cooler or TV or what have you.

Trees are a renewable resource.
I should add that the legs could be stuffed in the coffin with the torso.
People are buried in "caskets." Coffins went the way of the black and white cowboy movies where we used to see them.
