Is it some sort of virtual trap shooting?

A buddy of mine makes amateur fireworks (he’s an amateur, the fireworks are really good). He wants his ashes loaded into a bunch of 6″ mortars and used as the finale!

Great, now we can look forward to bullet-loads of your favorite dead ‘stars’.
Paris Hilton 50-cal rounds, anyone?

I don’t necessarily think that it’s wrong to cannonize someone as long as it’s done with respect, and preferably not with a blunderbuss.

Or jewellry.

If the person’s ashes were in the guns and the salute WASN’T posthumous, it would be very inappropriate….
