I'm a funeral director/embalmer. Ask me anything

Kind of bored tonight so I thought I'd do one of these. I've worked at funeral homes for 6 1/2 years and have been licensed for 3 years. Even though I'm a licensed embalmer, I work mainly with families, arranging and directing funerals and memorial services. Anything you've always wanted to know or want to clear up urban legends you've heard, ask away!

I heard corpses do weird things. What weird/scary things do they do? I know about the farting and sitting up on their own. And this post is fascinating.

You have my dream job. I couldn't do it due to my sleeping pills I have to take, I couldn't get up at night for a death. So I had to settle for law school. It really broke my heart I couldn't do it.

They don't sit up. And farting would be air leaving the body. Not like when you let a fart come out. Sometimes when you move someone air escapes their mouth and it sounds like an exhale. Dead bodies don't really do anything weird.

How old am I? How tall am I? What color are my toenails? What's your favorite thing about me?

I'm very lucky to work somewhere that I don't have to do night call. Law is interesting too and you'll make more money.
