A friend posted a pic of one that had a little saying in the bottom right corner “ if you can read this you are standing on my boobs”
It's not only funny it's really memorable. :-)  And it puts joy in the heart of the sensitive observer...

A well known Swedish author has one with the inscription (translated)

"Here lie the ashes of a man in the habit of putting everything off until tomorrow. He changed for the better on his deathbed, however, and did in fact die on 31 January 1972."

Yes the old slate carvers were not known for planning ahead. If they ran out of room on a line they just continued carving on the next line- even in the middle of a word.  One carver wrote- "My God she is thin"       he ran out of room and put the "e" for the word thine on the back side of the slate.
