"Shand's body was carried out the church in a biodegradable coffin as 'The Elephant Song' from the film The Jungle Book played in the background."

At the conservationist's funeral.

Is "The Elephant Song" "The Jungle Book" this?
Hup 2, 3, 4
Keep it up 2, 3, 4
Company sound off!
Oh, the aim of our patrol
Is a question rather droll
For to march and drill
over field and hill
Is a military goal!
Is a military goal!
That would be an oddly funny thing to sing while carrying a coffin, even a biodegradable coffin.

I know of a recent death of someone not religious, whose memorial was highlighted by the playing and singing of "Country Roads."

Biodegradable coffin in the rain? Ruh-ro.

I assume they meant The Elephant Song by Barney.

And all wooden coffins are biodegradable. But if the casket gets placed into a lined, leakproof burial vault, as is the normal practice in a cemetery so that the ground doesn't sag where the burial took place, then it scarcely matters does it?

Or at most any other time. Who can come up with a time it wouldn't be odd?
