Golden Coffin Has Built-In Cell Phone

Now this is the way to go: a golden coffin equipped with a built-in cell phone. Priced at a meager $381,000, this eternal bed was apparently designed to distinguish dead billionaires from the lower-classed millionaires.

The golden coffin is currently on tour with many other outrageous items geared for the outrageously rich (including a diamond-studded, cancan-style wedding dress just under $300K). However, it made a recent stop at an international luxury fair in Verona as reported here by the AFP.
