kochNEW YORK, NY – Talk about grave errors. Prior to his death, former New York Mayor Ed Koch meticulously planned his funeral, even approved his own tombstone. Naturally something had to go wrong.

Recently Koch’s birth date was added to his tombstone, December 12, 1942. The former mayor of New York City was actually born in 1924. The mistake would make Koch 18 years younger, not sure he would mind it though.

One question remains, if the former mayor were alive, what would he really say about the tombstone travesty. Well, he’d probably just be dying to get out of his grave.

What? Is comedy dead too?
