At some point in the orchard of the Spirit, we are confronted with the question of what is left of us in the end and what the remnant should look like. When humanity issues of this quality crop up, it was always a good idea to ask Jean Puetz, who then had "something prepared". So it was in his hobbythek, and so it is now: the magazine Senior counselors, of which we unfortunately hear too little, said the 82-year-old presenter, he wants a grave stone with an enamelled QR code on it. And if you scan this code, start a video in which Pütz wants to talk to people.
The QR code does not have the best reputation. It is suspected behind most passenger surveys of local transport companies or competitions of medium appeal (profit: "111 E-Sport jerseys of VfL Wolfsburg"). So we already suspect how the first care about the survival of the analog in the digital and as the second objections to any extravagance in the event of death, which in turn we are a little worried. We note that there is currently a tendency for mischief in German sepulchral culture. Let all SUVs drive in this world and abkenden in depressing expensive sneakers, which look as if they suffered anaphylactic shock – for the afterlife, a towel-sized cookie and a penniless inscription is sufficient as: "He was an inconspicuous passenger." We are therefore considering whether to invest our own grandmother's assets in a mausoleum, with fluorescent flamingos and a heated devotional bench, where visitors engage in life-affirming conversations: about their most beautiful carousel rides and the best fried potato recipes. And that's why we think the idea with a QR code is excellent! Weatherproof and winter-hard lighting elements, password-protected glow sticks and LED waterfalls with Wi-Fi, until everything looks like art installations in Berlin-Wedding or like this Icelander, of which everyone is so enthusiastic, at least: something for the heart. Incidentally, we would later put that in cognac, like the pianist Frédéric Chopin, with a fine-sparking gin and tonic or a happy-hour offer from the rotten nightclub around the corner, something that shows everyone clearly what Jean Pütz, he said, would like to announce with his gravestone code: "Thank you, it was a wonderful life."
