The global pandemic has people thinking about two things: Snacks and death. And this gloominess is apparently even affecting the younger generation.
According to a Twitter user named Matt Scalici his (presumably at least somewhat goth) child recently mused that the tombstones of the future would feature animated GIFs to bring comfort and lulz to the bereaved.
My 12-year-old just said she thinks eventually they’ll be able to put gifs on tombstones. Obviously, please quote tweet with the gif you will put on your video tombstone.

Never mind the fact that this technology certainly already exists, it does raise the question: What GIF would you choose to repeat on your tombstone until the end of time? Would it be Surprised Guy? Kombucha Girl? Or maybe something appropriately somber like James Van Der Beek crying for all eternity.
Here are people’s top choices for GIF headstones.
