Profane Headstone Has Town Up in Arms

Polk County, Iowa is all in a tizzy, when someone realized that the inscription on one man’s headstone contains more than just the dedication written on it.

The full inscription reads, “Forever in our hearts, until we meet again, cherished memories, known as: our son, brother, father, papa, uncle, friend & cousin.” However, the text is aligned so that, reading from top to bottom, says, “fuck off.”

The family of Steven Paul Owens says the term was a favorite of his, and that it was only appropriate to put it on his headstone. Of course, some aren’t thrilled with the memorial, saying it is a slipper slope from allowing profanity to allowing hate speech, but, really, if you want to be a racist on your headstone… that’s the message you want to leave for all eternity? Sometimes we just don’t understand humanity.
