We loved him, and my grandma called him "Wonderful Victor"! (that coffee mug in the video was the mug in his office LOL)

  • "Jeez, romance novels are so cheesy. There is no way a creepy mortician could be hot-"

  • What do you do to decapitated bodies? What if you find a body that’s like 7 years old and it’s just bones? I can’t believe I’m thinking of this right now

  • 1:57 truer words were never said

  • I would pay to listen to him telling stories

  • Yo where's Caitlin Doughty

  • “Victor Sweeney” well with a name like that the only option is to be a detective or a mortician no kidding

  • Cats inferior to dogs? Never!

  • Question to Americans here, when you say how much you make a year, like he said the avg is 65K USD a year... is it before all the tax and anything that is going to social benefits etc? or is this what actually goes into the pocket? (I think the term in english is gross \ net?)

  • I truly did not to watch this for as long as I did

  • You can't be burried "raw" because of prion diseases that leech into the soil and can taint soil for 29 months to as long as 50 years...

  • 12:53 so, imagine being a hairdresser, living your day to day life, and all of a sudden while you are making smalltalk to the dude whose hair your cutting, you get a call. Dude on the phone says “hey, come here, we’ve got a dead body that needs a bald fade” That would be interesting smalltalk.
