    • Penn: Get this. When you spring for the extra gasket to seal up your casket, the digestive enzymes and bacteria that normally inhabit humans every day...continue their work. Instead of digesting your food, they Your internal organs liquefy. Within two weeks of death, all this digested, bloody goo comes out any opening in your body. The gases inside of your body that don't make it out of your...nose...continue to build up until your body splits open, spilling your mostly digested insides into the coffin. So much for that...extra comfort padding. When the gases build up, well, a casket isn't as structurally sound as say, a champagne bottle, so sometimes, they just explode. So what do you think, worth the extra 300 bucks? We think so!
