->''"Everyone was there... 'Cause everyone was '''glad''' he was dead!"''
-->-- '''Robin''', ''WesternAnimation/BebesKids''

A funeral is a service that allows a deceased's family and friends to congregate in one place to celebrate the deceased's life and [[DueToTheDead pay their respects]]. To do so is considered common courtesy and practice. So what do some people do once the family is assembled?

How about doing the exact opposite of that by behaving in extremely tactless and inappropriate ways that would have the deceased rolling in their coffins if they knew?

Sometimes this disrespect comes in the form of [[SpeakIllOfTheDead discussions that are brought up]] around or even ''at'' the time the proceedings begin. Perhaps the deceased is an adult involved in one of the ends of an inheritance dispute. Maybe the deceased was survived by an illegitimate child or, even worse, a child that none of the relatives are completely willing to take custody of. In any event, the attendees of the funeral will be all too eager to talk about ''those'' matters than to mourn, not realizing that talking about them is putting their selfishness and spite out in the open.

Other times, disrespect or lack of concern toward the matter at hand show in their actions. After all, attending the funeral in improper dress or fooling around with whatever device is in possession instead of paying attention to the pastor or the procession are a few of the ''best'' ways to show love and care to the dead.

And that's not touching on those who are much more direct about their scorn toward the deceased. If the deceased was a {{Jerkass}} or guilty of other negative qualities in life, then expect people to open up and gossip about their faults or [[SpitefulSpit spit on his coffin]] now that the deceased is no longer around to complain. Sometimes, the deceased's family won't even wait to express their views until the funeral; [[http://www.snopes.com/media/iftrue/obituary.asp as they will expose him/her in the obituary as a bad person]].

Many times, criminals who are guilty of (especially) the most heinous of acts will have private funerals, if they have one at all; that is, the funeral is open only to those explicitly invited, and often the funeral location will not be announced publicly. Other times, the obituary will run only after the funeral service and burial. This is to keep unwanted intruders from interrupting the service for instance the embittered victim who was personally (or had a close friend or family member) particularly harmed by said deceased criminal's actions from showing up and -- in the process of screaming about how the decedent ruined his/her/others' lives --
disrupting the service and disrespecting the religious traditions of a funeral. After all, even the most heinous (now-deceased) criminal still likely has family and/or friends who wish to, in the very least, mourn that person in peace and remember him/her how they wish to. In these cases, usually there will be an usher or a police officer standing by the door of the funeral location to stop anyone who does happen to show up uninvited.

Funeral scenes like these also come up -- particularly in fiction -- to show how the people the deceased ''thought'' they were close to truly care once they are gone. Either they never truly did or they only cared to a shallow degree; or the funeral is a way to release pent-up frustration, hate, contempt and so forth toward the decedent, emotions that were held in for whatever reason while that person was still living. Other times, these scenes show how much {{Jerkass}}es the family and "friends" can be in general once the deceased is no longer around to remind them when to filter out their open contempt toward the deceased, his family, and/or his life decisions.

There are sometimes people who don't even have to ''misbehave''. If you're attending a funeral for a free meal and other things for your own self-interest, then the dead would have every right to be pissed off at you.

This should ''not'' be confused with its SisterTrope, TheFunInFuneral (though overlap is possible). The latter involves [[HilarityEnsues wacky]] situations in a funeral played for humor that occur out of the characters' control or because of their idiocy, while this trope specifically involves rude, uncaring, spiteful, contemptuous, hateful or simply {{Jerkass}} behavior and statements about the deceased and/or his family made during what is ''supposed'' to be a solemn event. This can be done for either [[RuleOfDrama drama]] or [[RuleOfFunny comedy]].

This may also overlap with AndThereWasMuchRejoicing, depending on the context. See also DishonoredDead, where the rites themselves are disrespectful or nonexistent.

Contrast with NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead. Compare and contrast BitterWeddingSpeech.

'''As a DeathTrope, this trope is SpoileredRotten by nature, and many examples here will spoil a work unless the funeral is part of someone's backstory. Unmarked spoilers below.'''



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion'': Rather than attend his parents and sister's funeral just to mourn for them and comfort him, Rei's aunts and uncles use the occassion to argue over who takes over his grandfather's hospital in his father's place, with one aunt in particular expressing half-hearted sympathy and "promising" Rei that she will send him to a "nice" institution. Meanwhile, the rest of the family is gossiping about ''them''. All this is punctuated when Kouda, a friend of his father's, glances toward his family and implicitly notes how none of them are paying attention and giving real comfort to Rei, before taking the initiative to take Rei in as his ward and student.
* In ''Manga/BunnyDrop'', many of the family members attending Grandpa Souichi's funeral are shocked to learn that he recently had an illegitimate child, Rin, shortly before his death. Her presence at the funeral isn't particularly welcomed and they mostly ignore her. When the time comes for the family to talk about what to do with her, shortly after placing flowers within his coffin, the discussion quickly devolves into an outlet for expressing their anger toward the situation and talking about how odd they find Rin and her dubious origins.
* During Yusuke's funeral at the start of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', while Kuwabara goes on a screaming fit about Yusuke dying, [[SubvertedTrope his outburst is an act of genuine mourning]]. In contrast, their school principal calls out some teachers who are at the funeral making snide comments about both Yusuke and Kuwabara's behavior.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'':
** When Katsuya Honda passes away, his relatives' conversations during the funeral ceremony quickly devolve from the circumstances surrounding his death to expressing their disapproval of Kyoko by berating or gossiping about her, saying that Katsuya was better off single. In a separate recollection of the same funeral, Tohru's grandfather brings up how the relatives would say disparaging remarks toward Tohru right in her face, thinking she would not understand.
*** This trope is also averted in a different instance. Several months after Kyoko's death, Tohru and a few of her friends visit her grave, and talk about how Kyoko (positively) influenced their lives. Kyo asks if this is disrespectful, but Uotani- a genuine friend of Kyoko- replies that she wouldn't mind them acting so casually.
** Kyo's biological father chooses his mother's funeral ceremony to start scene/argument with Kyo, using the latter's inability to approach his mother's grave in front of the family as an excuse.
* In ''Anime/HeatGuyJ'', Clair attempts to blow up his father's grave with a hand grenade, {{Laughing Mad}}ly about how the man loved fireworks. Giovanni and Mitchal wrestle the grenade from him and Mitchal accidentally blows up someone else's grave.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Only a handful of second-rate heroes are present at ComicBook/BoosterGold's funeral in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', and even they make it clear that [[OnlyInItForTheMoney they are only there because they are being paid]].
* A brawl broke out at [[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman Superman's funeral]]. Mostly because Rex Leech attempted to buy the rights to the last Superman photo from Jimmy Olsen, Jimmy punches him away, Rex's goons try to shoot him, only to be saved by ComicBook/{{Robin}}. Finding out about the guns causes people to flip out and panic.
* In ''ComicBook/SherwoodTexas'', the Nobles motorcycle gang crash the funeral of the leader of their rival gang the Jesters and attempt to start a fight with the Jesters. A rumble is only prevented by the arrival of the sheriff.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''Fanfic/TheStalkingZukoSeries'', [[Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender Ozai]] being crowned Fire Lord during the funeral of Azulon, his father and predecessor (whom he'd manipulated his wife Ursa into killing) is seen as extremely disrespectful and a break from Fire Nation tradition.

[[folder:Film -- Live-Action]]
* In the Creator/AudreyHepburn movie ''Film/{{Charade}}'', virtually the only people to attend the late Charles Lampert's funeral besides his widow are his three former partners in crime, who are mainly attending to see if he's FakingTheDead (the first tries to startle him by faking a sudden sneezing fit, the second holds a mirror under his nose to see if his breath condenses on it, and the third jabs him with a pin) and are more disgusted than sorry for his death.
* In ''Film/GranTorino'', the funeral of Walt Kowalski's wife had some disrespect shown from some attendees.
** One of the granddaughters was dressed fairly inappropriately and is fiddling around on her cell phone during the service.
** A grandson mocks the sign of the cross while standing at the casket. Instead of invoking the Holy Trinity, while going through the motions, he repeats the old joke, "Spectacles, testicles, wallet, and watch."
** Walt's kids start asking Walt if he wants to go to a "nice retirement place" so they could sell the house, and the same disrespectful granddaughter starts asking whether she could have some of the furniture and other items in the couch.
* In ''Film/AmazonWomenOnTheMoon'', a man's funeral turns into a comedy roast.
* Film adaptations of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' usually go with AndThereWasMuchRejoicing, but ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'', while not actually showing the funeral, had three pigs saying they'll only go to Scrooge's "if lunch is provided". That line (or a variation on it) [[ShownTheirWork shows up in the original novel]].
* At the beginning of ''Film/TheVerdict'', we see that the main character gets most of his cases by [[AmbulanceChaser trolling strangers' funerals with his business card]]. He gets away with it once, but the second time, the dead man's son calls him out and has him removed.
* ''Film/TalesFromTheHood'': When the corrupt cops visit their prior victim's grave, they take the opportunity to piss on the tombstone. The dead man rises from the grave to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge not long after.
* ''Trainwreck'' has Amy eulogizing her father by reminding people he was an alcoholic, bigoted jerk, before a touching end where she says people still liked him.
* In ''Film/BlueRuin'', Dwight learns that [[YouKilledMyFather Cleland Sr. has killed his father]]. When he finds Cleland Sr.'s grave behind the house, he goes inside, guzzles glasses of water, and then pisses on the grave stone as a gesture of revenge.

[[folder:Film -- Animated]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/BebesKids'', Robin meets Jamika at a funeral, where "everyone was there, cause everyone was glad he was gone." People are seen drinking, laughing and playing dominoes, while the only one grieving was the widow.

* A well-known joke has a memorial service for a particularly nasty person, and the vicar/rabbi/imam asking for somebody to share some pleasant memory of the deceased. There is then silence for some time, until a voice is heard saying "[[DamnedByFaintPraise He wasn't as bad]] [[EvilerThanThou as his brother was]]". (This has been told as an anecdote about several real-life people, but is probably apocryphal.)

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', the funeral of the protagonist's father is an occasion where almost no one is sad. The widow hums a little tune, not her fault, as she's TheOphelia, and fled to her own little world because her husband abused her. He brought it unto himself, so to speak. The protagonist, Ward, who has taken to ObfuscatingStupidity to protect himself from his abusive father, goes out of his way to act as innapropriately as possible. When his uncle explains to him, after his father has died, what just happened, he thinks for a moment before replying "I get his horse!". No one cries at the funeral, and the only ones present are family.
* A Charles Exbrayat story has an important member of a French town's funeral attended by all the town's society, along with many lower class people. The two cops on his murder case overhear the conversations, and one quotes a Chinese proverb: "There is nothing lacking from a rich man's funeral, except someone to mourn him".
* In ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', Topsy Lavish's funeral is attended by her relatives, a family of rich, selfish, squabbling assholes who do nothing but glare at each other throughout the ceremony, waiting for each other to start something. Nontheless, Cosmo considered it a "decently dignified occasion" spoiled only by Hubert, Topsy' nephew and only living blood relative, who was the only one actually mourning.
** In the Literature/{{Discworld}} short story "The Sea and Little Fishes", Granny Weatherwax finds herself worrying that this may be her fate, that people would attend her funeral only to make sure she was dead. Her attempts to be nicer to her neighbors cause them to fear something terrible is going to happen.
* In the novel ''LightNovel/ClotureOfYellow'' which is part of the Franchise/EvilliousChronicles by Music/{{Mothy}}, one of the main characters, Elluka Clockworker, attends the funeral of an "old friend" Leonheart Avadonia, apparently just to call him an idiot, and leaves.
* ''[[Literature/TheCatWhoSeries The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts]]'' frequently refers to the funeral of Efraim Goodwinter, who had a record number of mourners accompanying the funeral procession, but the vast majority are there to celebrate his death, Efraim being one of the most hated men in town after indirectly causing the deaths of 42 miners.
* In Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/PetSematary'', rather than quietly grieving, [[{{Jerkass}} Irwin Goldman]] uses his grandson Gage's funeral as an excuse to start a fight with his son-in-law.
* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', some of the people attending Tywin Lannister's funeral crack jokes about him [[UndignifiedDeath dying in a privy]]. Cersei is understandably angry when she overhears them.
* In ''Guardians of the West'', first book of ''the Literature/TheMalloreon'', the funeral of Ran Borune, Emperor of Tolnedra, is primarily attended by the rival families. Since Ran Borune died without a son, all the talk is about who will vie for the throne next. Most of the attendees deliver paper-thin condolences to his daughter Ce'Nedra. The only thing keeping the insults from being overt is the presence of her husband Belgarion, King of Riva and Overlord of the West. Eventually, though, even ''his'' patience ran out and he boldly escorts Ce'Nedra out of the temple, but not before delivering an exquisite retort to all present: "''The air in here has turned a trifle ''rancid."
* ''Literature/NickVelvet'': In "The Theft of the Leather Coffin", Nick is attending a viewing, working out how he can steal the eponymous coffin, when the funeral parlour is stormed by armed thugs who steal the coffin at gunpoint.
* In ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'', ogres are supposed to be {{Designated Villain}}s, so things like living in swamps, acting all mean and intimidating are considered desirable behavior. This even goes to their burial rights, where this trope is ''required'' to properly bury an ogre. Ogres prefer to be buried someplace nasty like a garbage dump; if something like that isn't handy, you need to ''curse'' the burial site you choose. That's how Smash managed to negotiate one of Good Magician Humphrey's obstacles in ''Ogre, Ogre'': he convinced a gate made of ogre's bones to fall apart so he could bury them properly: which he does when he insults the bones after burying them.
* At the end of the ''Series/BabylonFive'' novel ''Final Reckonings: The Fate of Bester", Garibaldi, whom Bester had [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind-controlled into betraying Sheridan]] years ago, visited Bester's grave after his funeral and hammered a stake into the ground above his coffin.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/AllMyChildren'': After Michael Cambias [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rapes Bianca]] and is subsequently found dead, literally ''everyone'' in Pine Valley showed up at his funeral just to give eulogies on how much they hate him for what he did to Bianca, with Bianca's then-lover Lena going so far as to [[SpitefulSpit spit]] on his grave. On another note, his coffin was actually empty; before the funeral, Tad Martin, Aidan Devane, and Boyd Larraby broke into the funeral home and stole Michael's body just to they could bury it in the garbage dump.
* The ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'' episode "I Wish I Were Gus" is built around several fascets of this. First, Ray is given the duty of having to write a eulogy for a family member he rarely (if ever) spent any time with, and one that led an uneventuful life as well, to which he decides to spend his time discussing the problems he's dealing with that day. Then, Marie and her sister renew decades-long disdain towards one another and make comments during the funeral. Also, Robert ends up making strange noises throughout, and eventually leaves.
* In ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'', Charlie has a dream in which he attends his own funeral (as a ghost). At the funeral, women spit on his coffin, the eulogy is filled with derogatory jokes, and Alan ends the service by inviting the congregation back to his beach house for a wake/luau.
** Charlie's actual funeral in the first episode of season 9 ends up being similar. Alan's eulogy was interrupted by Charlie's ex-girlfriends insulting the deceased, (they wanted to spit on him too, but his remains were not "spittable") and Evelyn used the occasion to remind everyone that Charlie's house is up for sale.
* In ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', when Phillip Banks' political opponent dies, everyone save for Will attends his funeral primarily to check if he's really dead. When Will proclaims that he was the one that killed him (albeit through telling him to drop dead) as he attempts to call them out on it, the attendees give him a [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing standing ovation]]. Phillip did have a complimentary eulogy prepared, but his wife Vivian accidentally on-purpose lost it.
* One episode of ''Series/NashBridges'' has recurring character Tony B fake his death. Most of the attendees at his funeral use the opportunity to insult him... even Nash.
-->'''Nash:''' From what I hear, making love to Tony B was like opening a bottle of champagne. (simulates popping the cork off a bottle of champagne) Pop! It's over.
* In an episode of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', when an old teammate dies, Coach is asked to give a eulogy; but when Coach finds out that the old friend had made a pass at his wife, he's mortified, and at first, intends to invoke this trope to tell him off. However, it is Subverted because he can't bring himself to do it, and delivers a touching eulogy. However, this leads to one of the guests saying he's ''almost'' ready to forgive the man, indicating that the deceased made a pass at ''his'' wife, and it is soon revealed that this is true for ''all'' the men attending. A double subversion is risked when they want to hang him in effigy, but Diane, ever the peacemaker, starts singing AmazingGrace, and the subversion stands.
* The ''Series/{{Community}}'' episode "Advanced Gay" sees the death of Pierce's father. At the funeral, Pierce delivers a scathing eulogy. Arguably well deserved given his treatment of his son.
* On ''Series/AsTheWorldTurns'', the funeral of an AssholeVictim character was attended only by the five women he had terrorized throughout his time on the show. And it was clear that they wouldn't have come had his lawyer not sent invitations specifically requesting their presence. One woman went so far as to take a letter opener and ''stab his corpse through the heart'' to ensure that he would not be coming back from the dead--he had done so several times before--to harass them again. At this, one of other women snarked, "Well, if he wasn't dead before, he sure as hell is now."
* ''Series/BabylonFive'': When [[DevilInPlainSight Morden]] asks Vir [[ArmorPiercingQuestion what he wants]], Vir has an answer along the lines of this trope:
-->"I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they [[OffWithHisHead cut off your head]] and [[DeadGuyOnDisplay stick it on a pike]] as a warning to the next ten generations that [[DealWithTheDevil some favors come with too high a price]]. I would look up at your lifeless eyes and wave... like this."\\
"Can you and your associates arrange that for me, Mr. Morden?"
** Later, [[spoiler:Morden is killed and put on display in exactly the same manner as Vir described. Vir then proceeds to do the mocking wave he'd promised to do before.]]
* ''Series/MadMen'' makes a point of showing how an ad executive's memorial service is populated mainly by his clients, who are now up for grabs, and people from rival agencies who are there to size them up. Another time, at Roger's mother's funeral, Don shows up drunk, disrupts proceedings by throwing up, and has to leave, and Bob Benson (a new guy not important enough to be invited) later gets reprimanded by Ken for sending food in an inappropriate attempt to ingratiate himself.
* ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' had an episode in which Rose finally tells off a very mean and bitter old woman to death. Eventually, while Rose organized a funeral out of guilt and to pay respects, nobody but an old woman shows up to pay her last respects. At first, the audience was treated to a beautiful eulogy, which was then subverted when the old woman realized that it was for the wrong woman. Once the speech giver was told who the funeral was for, she promptly turns around and kicks the coffin!
* In the ''Series/HouseMD'' episode "Birthmarks", Dr. House is forcibly dragged to his estranged, abusive father's funeral and made to give the eulogy. He takes the opportunity to gather tissue for a long-awaited DaddyDNATest.
* Chanel #2's funeral in ''[[Series/ScreamQueens2015 Scream Queens]]''. Chanel arranges her frienemy's funeral and even grants her last wishes (sending her ashes into space), but her eulogy is about how Chanel #2 was a backstabber, tried to put the moves on her boyfriend, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking when Chanel wanted to walk around campus in a diamond formation, Chanel #2 would refuse to walk behind her, so they had to walk in a triangle formation]]. She ends her eulogy by saying that Chanel got what was coming to her. The other Chanels also give their last respects, but they amount to saying that they're going to take her clothes, or that [[AmbiguouslyBrown they didn't know what ethnicity she was]].
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' of all shows references a real life example of this trope in one episode where Chandler goes to Joey's parents' house. Joey mentions his grandmother is there, and that she was one of the first few people to spit on Mussolini's dead body.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' has three "funeral" scenes (the deceased in question were still living), and all are about people being completely disrespectful at funerals, sometimes for their own agendas, sometimes just because they're jerks.
** In Episode 51, Church (the "dead" guy) is the one who wants a funeral; Tucker calls it lame and wanders off.
** In Episode 83, Griff turns Sarge's funeral into a comedy roast of Sarge, and Simmons uses the opportunity to campaign for Sarge's job.
** In the Season 9 Episode 14, it turns out no one remembers anything about Simmons except he liked gum and talked a lot.

* In one song by Music/ErsteAllgemeineVerunsicherung. The undead narrator's relatives "have a calculator instead of a bible in the hand, to divide up the heritage", but he gets the last laugh: He wasted his fortune before he died, and just left them his cognac, [[INeedAFreakingDrink which they'll need.]]
* The music video for Music/{{Rammstein}}'s song "Haifisch" is set at singer Till Lindemann's funeral. The rest of the band discuss ''in front of his coffin'' who to replace him with. And while it's not clear what killed him [[spoiler: until the end, where it's revealed he faked his death]], the others clearly had fantasized about killing him.

[[folder:Recorded And Stand Up Comedy]]
* During the ''Series/BlueCollarComedy Tour'', Creator/BillEngvall offered the following "You might be a redneck" joke:
--> ''"If you've ever opened a beer during a eulogy, you might be a redneck."''
** And after Bill finished explaining this one (it was his uncle Jack), Creator/{{Larry|TheCableGuy}}, Creator/{{Ron|White}}, and Creator/{{Jeff|Foxworthy}} improv'ed the following:
---> '''Jeff:''' Mama looks good, don't she? *mimes drinking*
--->'''Ron:''' That ain't Mama. *drinks*
--->'''Larry:''' Naw, that's her, they just shaved her beard off!

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'': during Shinji's service, you overhear two upperclassmen complaining about how they don't want to waste time sitting through it, and that he was probably 'just some punk'. One then asks your hero if he happened to know the guy, then dismisses the possibility, as you're just a ''junior''.
* ''VideoGame/PlanetSide'' Guild HMX-1 held a funeral for one of their own, [=Raider05=], who had passed away due to a heart attack. HMX-1 Set the funeral up in an area where enemy players were banned from entering, however, another guild the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Enclave]], ostensibly members of the same faction (The Terran Republic) and therefore allowed into the zone, proceeded to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7x_WLbjNDcg carpet bomb the funeral]]. As no one in the funeral was armed, except 7 snipers (for the 21 gun salute), the Enclave managed to kill everyone.
* At the end of ''VideoGame/{{Broforce}}'', your character pays his last respects to [[spoiler:Satan himself]]... by ''pissing on his grave''.
* Enzo's first act in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' is pissing on the tombstone of a guy who Bayonetta is praying over, and taunting her about how no angels are going to be coming for this guy, culminating in him throwing his spent stogie onto the coffin. When the angels do arrive to Enzo's shock and disbelief, Bayonetta proceeds to kick their asses all over the place.

[[folder:Web Comic]]

* ''UglyHill'' had two of these.
** Eli and Hastings grandfather, who had been a racist, mean old bastard, but whom Hastings had begun to bond with shortly before his death. At the funeral, it turned out that he had a massive falling out with his children, which was the reason for why Eli and Hastings mother (who was otherwise just as racist and nasty as her father) nearly disowned Hastings for visiting him. At the funeral itself, their uncle showed up and told them he'd been working on a loogie the whole way there just so he could spit epically on his fathers corpse. The feeling was mutual, as the will revealed that the old man only let his house and 500.000 in credit card bills to his children.
** When Eli and Hastings mother herself dies near the end of the strips run, there's a lot of mixed feelings. Hastings was always close to her and is devastated, while Eli hated her due to her racism, manipulative behavior and selfishness. When left alone in the funeral parlor, he prepares to beat up her corpse with a mallet.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** When Mr. Burns is thought to be dead, various dignitaries come to his funeral just to spit in his grave. So many in fact, that the grave has to be drained afterwards.
** On "Bart The General", Bart imagines what his funeral after being killed by Nelson would be like. Nelson takes a cupcake placed for Bart in the casket, then gives the body a few more punches "for the road". To a lesser extent, there's also Milhouse, who thanks Bart for dying since this means he didn't have to go to school for the day. Homer initially behaves the same ("yeah, and I got the day off from work!") but quickly switches to mournful.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'':
** In "Wingmen", Robert Freeman's longtime "friend" Moe passes away, and he is then asked to read a pre-written eulogy. At first, everyone at the funeral acts as if Moe is the best at everything. He is being given credit for things Robert did in World War II, all the women swoon for him, etc. Robert finally breaks all the lies by announcing how much of a jerk Moe really was. Everyone else then starts agreeing and pointing out how he owed many of them money and other negative aspects about him.
** In "The Color Ruckus", Uncle Ruckus' father Mister Ruckus attends the funeral of his own mother Nelly Ruckus, not out of grief, but out of celebration ([[DysfunctionalFamily Nelly, Mister, and Uncle all hated each other]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' gives us an example in the episode ''Murder, She Snored''. Although the funeral occurs in Daria's dream, nobody really has anything nice to say. Ms. Barch uses it as an excuse for another feminist rant, Mack's eulogy basically insults Kevin, and to top it off, Daria and Jane wear Hawaiian shirts for the occasion [[note]]Though this was part of the detective show reference gags in the episode, Daria was standing in for Hawaiian shirt-loving P.I. Thomas Magnum[[/note]]. The 3 J's even mimic the tests done by the men in Charade (see Film above) to make sure that Kevin is dead.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'', P.A. is asked to give the eulogy at the funeral of a cranky neighbor no one liked. She's having a difficult time finding anything nice to say about her, but also realizes she can't just lie about her.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* The Jolley Gang was a group of unpleasant funeral-crashers, who blagged their way into funerals on the pretext that they knew the deceased, so as to get at the free food / booze. Victoria Coren wrote a couple of [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2008/dec/21/celebrity-victoria-coren scathing articles]] about them, after they targeted her father's funeral.
** [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/mar/21/victoria-coren-jolley-gang The second article]] details how one of the members [[DeathByIrony crashed another funeral, choked on a canape and died]].
* Fred Phelps Sr. was an American pastor infamous for his anti-gay slogans and beliefs. One of the activities his Westboro Baptist Church congregation is known for is going around veterans' funerals and claiming that God condemned them to die because the nation tolerates "fags." As one can well imagine, this didn't do a lot to earn them points with the rest of the community, particularly due to changing attitudes toward homosexuality. Some of the most vocally offended -- both gay-rights activists and those whose military sons and daughters' funerals were picketed -- talked of similarly paying their "respects" at Phelps' funeral upon his death, but per the Christian Science Monitor, no one ever got the chance [[http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Society/2014/0320/Fred-Phelps-no-funeral-for-the-preacher-who-picketed-so-many-video there was no funeral]] (and presumably, his family mourned in private).
* It is not unheard of for gang members of rival factions to show up at a rival gang member's funeral and begin trouble, particularly if: 1. The gang member's death was both brutal and at the hands of the other gang; and 2. There were especially tense emotions between the two gangs. Often, police presence will discourage any funeral violence, but it hasn't always stopped the unwanted from happening.
* Some people are so disliked -- in particular, by their own families -- that there isn't even a funeral. In at least two cases, [[http://www.snopes.com/media/iftrue/obituary.asp obituaries cursing the just-deceased person]] were actually published. In each of the obituaries, the mothers (both were women) were described by their children as hateful and emotionally, sexually and physically abusive, and that they would be remembered that way as they now try to find closure and move on with their lives.
* PlayedForLaughs at the funeral of [[Creator/MontyPython Graham Chapman]], at his request. The other Pythons noted that, with all the shocking and vulgar things they'd done for the sake of comedy over the years, it would've been unforgivable to pass up the opportunity. Chapman's family had a serious, separate funeral for themselves and the Pythons put on their own so they wouldn't wreck that one.
* Cartoonist Al Capp had a bitter feud with Ham Fisher, whom he used to assist before starting ''ComicStrip/LilAbner''. After Fisher committed suicide, Al Capp remarked that it was the most honorable thing he's ever done.
* [[http://www.cracked.com/article_24610_6-disturbing-abandoned-places-hiding-right-in-plain-sight.html The Oise-Aisne American Cemetery in France]] is your standard military cemetery... except for Plot E. It's a plot reserved for war criminals, and it's made to disrespect the dead in many ways.
