A German television company, Vox.de, has a pair of fun (and morbidly funny) online games inspired by the HBO television series, Six Feet Under, hidden on their website. Both are twisted javelin competitions, where you must throw gross things for as long a distance as you can muster.
In one of them, you play a mortician who is removing the pacemaker from a body cavity and throwing it away. Since the instructions are in German, here’s how to play: use the spacebar on your keyboard to drop the device, and then hit the spacebar again to bounce it off the trashcan and send the pacemaker flying across the room. (The bloody thing can bounce off of sponges, which you can arrange with your mouse). Click on “neustart” to play again.

In another, easier, game, you play a hearse driver who is tossing coffins. Accelerate the hearse by hitting the right arrow key rapidly. Once you’re off the asphalt, press the spacebar to brake just before you hit a brick wall…and then see how far you’ve hurled the body.

Both games require Macromedia Flash, which is probably already plugged into your web browser. (Special thanks to my wife, Renate, who translated the instructions!).
