Romania’s Merry Cemetery offers visitors dark humour

Death isn’t always tragic, at least not in this Romanian cemetery, where the dead beguile visitors with tales of their lives.

The Merry Cemetery in the northwestern village of Sapanta is a collection of more than 1,000 elaborate wooden Orthodox crosses etched with colourful epitaphs and childlike drawings.

There are few secrets in this small community and whatever flaws someone had when they were alive are turned into “grave art” when they die.

This darkly humorous and matter-of-fact approach, rooted in the traditional peasant culture of the region, intrigues visitors.

Despite its remote location some 600 km northwest of the Romanian capital, Bucharest, the cemetery is one of the country’s top tourist attractions.

“I’ve seen what touches [tourists]. This cemetery… is not just a cemetery. People realised that this indeed is a place where you can laugh at death itself,” said sculptor Dumitru Pop Tincu, 62, who crafted many of the crosses. He was speaking in his workshop, dressed in a traditional costume of an embroidered smock, loose trousers and a straw hat.

Outdoor museum

One recent morning, German tourists were taking in the rows of intricately carved blue, yellow, green and red crosses, looking at the cartoon-like drawings and limericks written in a quirky language used by locals. Some consider the place less a graveyard and more an outdoor museum.

Romanian-born Gerhard Schuster, 63, who lives in Kempten, southern Germany, said: “Ever since I was a child, I heard stories about this. My parents were talking about the Merry Cemetery and I’ve always wanted to come and see it but wasn’t able to until now. ”

One of the drawings features a young man and a subway carriage the man was run over by a train. His epitaph reads: “I enjoyed life so much, I went to western Europe; may it be cursed along with the Paris metro. I used to be a gambler, and I died in 2001 when I was 16 years old.”

Some of the crosses resemble modern-day morality tales.

One epitaph for a truck driver warns the living about the perils of working too hard.

STUDY: eHarmony Says Physical and Self-Deprecating Humor Make Best Matches

It’s most common for singles to say they’re looking for someone with a good sense of humor who can make them laugh, while looking for a date or for love online, but do you know what your humor type is?


Online Dating Site eHarmony took a deep dive into what types of humor singles find appealing, or not, based on a study of 1500+ singles viewing 32 memes in six categories. After scoring the most and least popular humor types by gender, the survey followed the online communications of the singles who participated, to measure their behavior after viewing a profile.

Topping the list, singles found physical humor to be the funniest, followed by bodily humor, and self-deprecating humor. What’s not surprising in their data, is that men enjoyed physical humor significantly more than women did.


Let’s face it. It’s hard to be funny solely in the written word or in a digital chat. Since you can’t hear someone’s voice when you type in a humorous message and hit send, the recipient might find your wit to be an insult. I know, as I’ve been the recipient of some bizarre digs, when deep down I knew that someone was just trying to make conversation and didn’t have the benefit of a dating coach to provide a list of ice-breakers.

eHarmony‘s CEO Grant Langston knows the importance of humor in relationships. He’s been with the company since the site’s launch in 2000. “Sense of humor – and not having one – has always been one of the biggest deal breakers for eharmony users,” said Langston.

Langston added, “Having a shared sense of humor with your partner gives some insight into how you will deal with the ups and downs of your lives together. In the end, it comes down to the core desire to connect with someone on things you both genuinely enjoy.”

To better understand how you’d react to a humorous introduction online, here are the six humor types, along with a sample of associated memes presented in the survey, in order of popularity.

In the category of physical humor, users viewed five animated gifs that included scaring others, pranks, or falling. This was the most popular category of the six presented, as singles felt they were the funniest. Men ranked this significantly higher than any other humor category in the study.


Bodily humor involved toilet humor, body parts and bodily functions, or humor that was sexual in nature. This was the only category that both men and women rated the same. Perhaps it’s the familiarity, or maybe the basic nature that sex does sell.

3. Self Deprecating Humor


The survey results showed that women found self-deprecating humor, where they made fun of themselves and their shortcomings, significantly funnier than men. Other memes included the verbiage of “I’m just going to put an ‘out of order’ sticker and call it a day” and “I think senility is going to be a fairly smooth transition for me.”


Wordplay humor included puns with an emphasis on unexpected meanings and usage of certain words. Other memes presented included a dinosaur sipping a cup of tea captioned with the words “tea-rex” and another which posed the question, “what do you call a fake noodle?” with the answer being an “impasta.”


When your cat is wearing your lingerie, and it makes absolutely no logic or sense at all, it falls into the category of surreal humor. This type of humor is predicated on deliberate violations of casual reasoning, producing events that are illogical. The survey showed that singles who were higher-educated with bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees had a lower tolerance for this type of humor.


Dark humor included making light of people and subjects that were generally considered taboo or serious in nature. Another meme said, “People are like trees. They fall when you hit them multiple times with an axe.” Ouch. Participants found dark humor the least funniest. Swipe left.

In conversation with eHarmony’s Senior Research Scientist Jonathon Beber, we discussed the six humor types and how that affects love.

Beber stated that participants who found Wordplay Humor the funniest, actually sent out more messages and received more responses that those who didn’t enjoy Wordplay. Think of it like the clean or G-rated jokester. Beber believed that if you study humor based on Wordplay, it will be more likely to translate into a successful message.

Beber noted that singles who enjoyed wordplay humor tended to be more educated than the other categories.

He added that sharing a similar style of humor with a romantic partner could lead to more chemistry and better relationship quality during the course of the length of the relationship. Isn’t that what we’re all looking for? Cut to laughter and a smile.

At the end of the digital day, laughter has always been the best medicine.

Wishing you much love and joy in cyberspace, or wherever you may swipe or roam.

This is the most important personality trait for online daters

Dating is a funny business.

Want your online profile to get people’s attention? Write something witty. People seeking relationships online say humor is the most important component in a match, according to a new study from dating service eHarmony. Scientists surveyed 1,500 users using a range of internet memes and found people on the site who were considered funny had better success in matching, more frequent conversations, and a higher number of views from other users.

“People use humor to establish bonds with another person,” Jonathan Beber, senior research scientist at eHarmony said. “It comes down to the core desire to reach out and connect with someone on something that you both enjoy.”

The study, released Wednesday, also found humor falls under six identifiable types: humor regarding bodily functions, dark humor, physical humor, self-deprecating humor, surreal humor, and wordplay humor. Overall, users found physical humor like scaring people and pulling pranks the funniest while dark humor was scored the least funny.

Women found self-deprecating humor significantly funnier than men and people who had been married found dark humor less funny.

But preferred humor varied by demographics. Women found self-deprecating humor significantly funnier than men and people who had been married found dark humor less funny. Education also played a role in what people find funny, with physical humor less funny the more educated respondents were. Highly-educated respondents preferred wordplay.

The biggest factor in what people found funny was age, according to Beber. People who were more than 65 years old found physical, bodily, and self-deprecating humor equally funny while 25- to 49-year-olds preferred bodily humor and physical humor. The oldest age group surveyed (65 and older) found everything less funny than younger counterparts. Eric Resnick, dating expert of ProfileHelper.com said he has found this in his experience, but it is not always a deal-breaker.

“Humor shifts with each generation, but just because you don’t have the same basis for humor, doesn’t mean that you can’t find common ground,” he said. “In fact, it is a great opportunity to share more of yourself with your partner and introduce each other to the things that you love.”

‘It is amazing how many people sink themselves in their dating profiles by trying to sound funny or clever. Tone doesn’t always translate really well in the written word.’

Based on the study’s results, eHarmony will enable users to participate in a meme-based survey to better match with those who share their sense of humor in coming months. Still, Resnick said that although humor plays a large role in romance, dating profiles may not be the best location to showcase it.

“It is amazing how many people sink themselves in their dating profiles by trying to sound funny or clever,” he said. “Tone doesn’t always translate really well in the written word, so what might sound hilarious in your head could come across as lame, desperate, or even offensive in a dating profile. Just be yourself, and if there is something funny there, it will come through.”

Romania’s Merry Cemetery offers visitors dark humour

Vadim Ghirda and Nicolae Dumitrache, The Associated Press


Published Wednesday, September 20, 2017 7:03AM EDT

SAPANTA, Romania — Death isn’t always tragic, at least not in this Romanian cemetery, where the dead beguile visitors with tales of their lives.

The Merry Cemetery in the northwestern village of Sapanta is a collection of more than 1,000 elaborate wooden Orthodox crosses etched with colorful epitaphs and childlike drawings.

There are few secrets in this small community and whatever flaws someone had when they were alive are turned into “grave art” when they die.

This darkly humorous and matter-of-fact approach, rooted in the traditional peasant culture of the region, intrigues visitors.

Despite its remote location some 600 kilometres (360 miles) northwest of the Romanian capital, Bucharest, it’s one of the country’s top tourist attractions.

“I’ve seen what touches (tourists). This cemetery… is not just a cemetery. People realized that this indeed is a place where you can laugh at death itself,” said sculptor Dumitru Pop Tincu, 62, who crafted many of the crosses. He spoke to The Associated Press in his workshop, dressed in a traditional costume of an embroidered smock, loose trousers and a straw hat.

One recent morning, German tourists were taking in the rows of intricately carved blue, yellow, green and red crosses, looking at the cartoon-like drawings and limericks written in a quirky language used by locals. Some consider the place less a graveyard and more an outdoor museum.

Romanian-born Gerhard Schuster, 63, who lives in Kempten, southern Germany, said: “Ever since I was a child I heard stories about this. My parents were talking about the Merry Cemetery and I’ve always wanted to come and see it but wasn’t able to until now. “

One of the drawings features a young man and a subway carriage — the man was run over by a train. His epitaph reads: “I enjoyed life so much, I went to western Europe; may it be cursed along with the Paris metro. I used to be a gambler, and I died in 2001 when I was 16 years old.”

Some of the crosses resemble modern-day morality tales.

One epitaph for a truck driver warns the living about the perils of working too hard. “I used to work to be wealthy and I had to leave everything behind. I wish people would stop and read this on my cross,” it reads. “Here’s what happened: the truck rolled over and the dirt smothered me. I died in Barcelona in 2002 when I was 42 years old.”

In 1935, local wood sculptor Stan Ioan Patras came up with the idea of engraving epitaphs and simple drawings onto crosses, and went on to craft a total of 700 crosses until his death in 1977. His grave says he was the creator of the Merry Cemetery.

Crosses costs between 2,000 and 5,000 lei ($520 to $1,300) and it can take weeks to create one.

While some crosses are amusing, others are simply sad.

One shows a three-year-old being run over by a car, and another tells the story of a 38-year-old man who had a “merciless death” that snatched him from his wife and two daughters.

Tincu mused about the philosophy behind the cemetery.

“These texts and images contain elements that remind you of what life is about,” he said.
