I think this is funny. I wonder if funeral DJ's will become popular? Side note: I lived in Central America and Mexico for 10 years. A couple of friends/acquaintances passed during that time and I went to their wakes and funerals. At the first one I noticed a group of 3 women sitting in a corner, weeping. As time went on they got louder and started wailing and one even threw herself on the floor and just let go. I thought they must be close relatives or good friends of the deceased. Later, I saw them outside the house smoking and laughing among themselves. I decided to pay my condolences to them. I was told "we don't know the dead person. we were hired by the family to grieve." I was surprised, but not being a native I knew there were lots of customs that I was unfamiliar with. I noticed it at the other wakes I attended during my time there. I mentioned it to a friend of mine from England and he said "we have them in England too". Later, after I returned to the USA I was writing some short stories about my life down south and decided to mention it. In doing some research, I found that it is a worldwide custom going back throughout history. All you have to do is Google "professional mourning".
