Electroplating The Dead (1891)

Burial? Cremation? How about electroplation? How could you resist being made metallic for eternity with a brilliant red copper finish of exceptional strength and durability? Relatives could stand you in the corner of their living-room, until they die and your nieces and nephews are left with the problem of whether to keep the metal you. Let's face it, they'd consider that a bit weird, and what? Give you to a charity shop? Imagine that! You could end up in the window of Oxfam (what price would they put on you?), and be bought by a collector of strange objects. That or you get chucked in a skip by a house clearance team... 

Who better to provide some suitably metallic music than Daphne?
