Turning Tombstones Into Atm Machines

    (New York, Wireless Flash) - A deceased cattle rancher in Bozeman, Montana, is bringing new meaning to the term "cashing out"—by installing an automatic teller machine in his tombstone. Cattle rancher Grover Chestnut died recently at the age of 79. However, before he cashed in, he installed an ATM at his tombstone and gave 10 heirs debit cards, and told them were allowed to withdraw $300 per week from the grave. It may sound like a grave waste of money but sources say Chestnut figured the tombstone ATM was the best way to make sure his grave had regular visitors. It must be working. Joel Jenkins, who helped create the "cashing-out" machines, says one of Chestnut's granddaughters recently gave up a promising acting career in New York in order to cash in on Grandpa's money-making tombstone. Although Chestnut's grave is currently the only one with an ATM, Jenkins figures others will be dying to try it soon.

    Now that old man probably had his kids figured accurately. Money does talk...even if it's on his death bed.
