Ode to a Noggin Urn

A company named Cremation Solutions (motto: "Have a problem? We'll burn it to ash!") has come up with the most amazingly bad idea in the history of cremation solutions.

It's an urn in the shape of the dead person's head.

As you can see above, the likeness is uncanny. You recognize Ringo Starr above, right? Here's the promo copy.

They are created from one or two photographs with exceptional attention to details. With advances in facial analysis and the advent of state of the art 3D imaging, these high tech urns can be made to look like anyone. The full sized personal urn can hold all the ashes of an adult . . .
The personal urn does not come with hair. For hair we can digitally add hair if you wish, or wigs can be used . . . 
Personal urns can be designed to look like anyone. We just need good pictures. We prefer one picture from the front and one from the side . . .
Urns Like You or Like Them! No Two are Alike

As you can see, the company thought it was a good idea to make a head-urn of President Obama. Great salesmanship, Cremation Solutions! But at least this could be the best gag gift ever! Just send in two photos of your best friend . . . and when it's done, you have the perfect birthday present.

Also, I'd like to have urns made of identical twins just to prove that slogan at the end wrong.
