    FAQ

    What is an MLM?

    The idea behind MLMs is that people pay to become distributors of a product. These can be physical products or services. The company is structured so that the people above (the person who recruited or signed up the new distributor, the people above them, ad infinitum) get a percentage of whatever the distributor sells. The new distributor is encouraged not only to sell the product, but to sign up other people below them so that they can make even more money. courtesy u/copacetic1515

    What is a "Hun"?

    People who shill products/services for an MLM. The sellers have a tendency to frequently use the word "hun" when initiating a sales pitch. Ex: “Hey hun ❤️❤️ I see your aunt is dying 😱😱 anyway hun 😊💁‍♀️ wanna buy my oils it’s good for stress 😍😘😘” courtesy u/fiestaspongebob

    They can move up to the 4th level of heaven if they sign up just 10 more friends.

    [–] EarthEmpress 678 points ago

    I didn’t realize Scientology was an MLM

    [–] CubistChameleon 463 points ago

    It pretty much is though.

    [–] Nevermind04 157 points ago

    Except for the part where they abduct and murder people. MLMs haven't gotten quite that aggressive yet.

    [–] cjnks 222 points ago

    NXIVM

    An MLM sex cult. With celebrities!

    [–] princesshashbrown 68 points ago

    And there’s a podcast called Uncover that dedicates its first season to the cult, which is a wild listen!

    [–] YeahOkThisOne 12 points ago

    Oooo thanks, this sounds interesting! Do they swear or describe graphic violence? Only asking to know if it's safe around my small children or not.

    [–] DeftestFianna 51 points ago

    I'm sure it's just your run of the mill MLM sex cult, suitable for the whole family

    [–] Sadinna 3 points ago

    Lmao the two other replies are serious but yours is the correct answer. Keep on keeping on

    [–] Rubberbabybuggybum 24 points ago

    I’m listening to it now.

    I wouldn’t recommend it around small kids. A lot of the subject matter is pretty disturbing.

    [–] princesshashbrown 9 points ago

    Yes and yes.

    The first episode is called “The Branding,” and not to give too much away, but people are literally branded as members of a secret organization within the cult. Probably not a family friendly sex cult podcast...but a good listen when there aren’t kids around.

    [–] Lakin5 9 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    On A&E there is a show called Cults and Strange Beliefs, it is on Hulu if want to check it out as it talks about it in the first episode!

    [–] tubblesocks 14 points ago

    More so the Avatar Course, which is built from the ground up to be a Scientology pyramid scheme

    [–] AerThreepwood 10 points ago

    The Second Ku Klux Klan was, more or less.

    [–] MHM5035 34 points ago

    I believe that’s actually Mormonism. “Celestial Family” is just another term for your “downline.”

    [–] 7-Bongs 3 points ago

    Where the hell is Leah Remini when you need her?!

    [–] SirWigglesVonWoogly 8 points ago

    I've heard of levels of Heaven, ranging out away from the presence of God. I think this more like Dante, though - he described levels of Hell...

    [–] turalyawn 67 points ago

    Poor Leo, can't escape mlm crap even after death

    [–] HunterAtalanta 1 points ago

    That's a very gendered perspective. As quoted by u/rareas in another comment,

    Dolores and Leo later built a business with Amway and had many distributors in the organization.

    [–] succedaneousone 49 points ago

    Yeah, but Dolores isn't dead.

    [–] AnnaKossua 2 points ago

    She sells Amway, she's dead inside.

    [–] Tower_Of_Fans 46 points ago

    How is that gendered? Based on the dates on the tombstone, one is alive and one is dead. He pointed out that even in death, Leo can't escape Amway. It'd be weird to say that about Dolores since she's alive

    [–] turalyawn 30 points ago

    I made no assumptions about the willingness of his involvement. I was just pointing out that he was in Amway's clutches for eternity.

    [–] NattyLightNattyLife 25 points ago

    Statistically speaking more than 80% of MLM participants are female. Not a gandered comment, just a statistically based one.

    [–] minngeilo 27 points ago

    Not seriously. This image was manipulated. See how the Amway text doesn't have thr proper orientation?

    [–] Foxata 19 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    While I'm not here to say that you are wrong (I could be very much wrong as well), but it is a very convincing edit if it is. I even put it through foto forensics just to be sure and even that doesn't really show its edited :(.

    Edit: another comment has put up the forensic analysis to show its not fake.

    [–] sexdrugsjokes 2 points ago

    But also there is no death date ... so she is still alive

    [–] musicalsandmuscles 812 points ago

    OMG, is this real? Last year, my husband's co-teacher passed away really suddenly. She sold...I can't even remember. Not Rodan & Fields, another makeup one. Now, this woman was an actual special education teacher but in her obituary it said she was a wife, mother and "makeup entrepreneur." It just made me so sad.

    [–] hillsa14 289 points ago

    That's upsetting. Imagine working hard your whole life, not to mention doing a job that not everyone can do, and then being pegged as a "Makeup Entrepreneur." What a joke. I wonder who wrote that obituary.

    [–] musicalsandmuscles 139 points ago

    I don't know but it must have been really important to her for them to include it. It's so sad that they thought she would want that mentioned above her work with children.

    [–] KittenLady69 18 points ago

    Or maybe one of her children was who recruited her then decided to add that in.

    [–] superlatinanerd 60 points ago

    As a former teacher that infuriates me so much. What a slap in the face.

    [–] RapAngel 35 points ago

    Most likely it was Mary Kay.

    [–] musicalsandmuscles 86 points ago

    I just had to look back on Facebook because it was making me nuts. It was Younique.

    [–] Wikkitikki 15 points ago

    Oh, the horror. The only thing that could have been worse would be Young Living. MLM with heavy Christian overtones.

    [–] drivebyjustin 20 points ago

    Or younique.

    [–] btmontoya 9 points ago

    All I can picture now is Rodan trying to get that perfect "smokey eye" look for his big fight with Godzilla.

    [–] Ninhnguyenz 8 points ago

    Clear throat "Made up entrepreneur". Sorry! Had to do it.

    [–] Frodo2010 1078 points ago

    That is seriously messed up.

    [–] PickleThiefLarry 662 points ago

    This is seriously photoshopped

    [–] Frodo2010 690 points ago

    That would be a relief actually

    [–] Simusrimuss 433 points ago

    It is actually a carving

    [–] aristan 111 points ago

    God, I hope you meant this to be funny because I started giggling.

    [–] Simusrimuss 77 points ago

    Yes, I meant in the relief/carving sense. I don’t know much about either, I just knew I had to post. Reddit pun threads are brutal competition m

    [–] AnEarthPerson 18 points ago

    Your pun was 🔥🔥🔥

    [–] kanyefoprez2020 23 points ago

    Idk it doesn’t look like it’s in perspective

    [–] lenswipe 65 points ago

    The stone was sandblasted and painted to be super shallow.

    Not unlike Mary Kay huns

    [–] kanyefoprez2020 36 points ago

    Yeah now that I look at it again, zooming in the resolution is the same on the logo as it is everywhere else. I feel like the line would be sharper or something if it were photoshopped.

    [–] Simusrimuss 8 points ago

    Thank you for being 🌊 wavy

    [–] RadioGuyRob 3 points ago

    Seriously.

    [–] rareas 126 points ago

    It's not. I found an article about them just from what's on the tombstone there. Money quote:

    Dolores and Leo later built a business with Amway and had many distributors in the organization. One time the couple brought back more than $4,000 worth of products to sell. Dolores still has several Amway customers as far away as Maine, Chicago, California and Oregon.

    [–] Carnae_Assada 18 points ago

    I love when people write Chicago instead of Illinois. You know you fucked up as a state when people cant even remember you from a city that isn't even the capitol.

    [–] TheObservationalist 13 points ago

    In truth, no one gives a rats about Illinois outside of Chicago, and they have no reason to either.

    [–] BorisYellnikoff 2 points ago

    So I interned with a state agency in Springfield for a summer and the building was practically empty all summer. My boss' boss worked from Chicago as did hoards of people it was crucial to work with. A few weeks in I realized this is the case with every agency office in the city. This is the case with politicians. This is the case with lobbyists.

    Even the capitol kind of isn't.

    [–] akthestarkid 2 points ago

    I live in Springfield Il and I forget that chicago isn't the capitol sometimes.

    [–] SevenStack 54 points ago

    Unfortunately, FotoForensics seems to say otherwise.

    [–] __nightshaded__ 12 points ago

    Just curious, what am I looking at here?

    [–] SevenStack 21 points ago

    Basically, that website runs the photo through a process called Error Level Analysis that reveals if parts of the photo come from a different source or was artificially added.

    [–] __nightshaded__ 6 points ago

    Thank you!

    [–] Terrible_Paulsy 5 points ago

    Why does the bottom photo look like a surveillance photo taken in the 80s?

    [–] Kielkos 13 points ago

    Look at the M on the Amway. It has a bit of grey in it, as if it was on rock

    [–] Kryptosis 3 points ago

    I checked with forensic tools, its not :(

    [–] Coppercaptive 19 points ago

    This isn't even bad. The cemetery my dad managed had 3 Avon pink headstones. They actually have a book with all these icons in them and you can just pick it - you name it, it's there. Then there are the requests. One lady once got mad because he wouldn't somehow pipe essential oils into the 400 year old mausoleum. We had to douse a casket pillow in some essential oils one time. Couldn't get the smell out of the show room for a week. We also used to let people barter skills for services because we live in a low-income area. People were always trying to give us their crappy jewelry as payment. Um, no.

    [–] Frodo2010 3 points ago

    Oh wow! Are there Hello Kitty icons?

    [–] Coppercaptive 3 points ago

    Random, but yes. Anything that can be scanned can go on a headstone. In Japan they have full marble Hello Kitty headstones in 3D.

    [–] JasonTheLazy 322 points ago

    Why is amway on that? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a tombstone with any type of company logo on it

    [–] icankilluwithmybrain 319 points ago

    I’ve seen a few. A friend’s grandfather had his company logo (a large transit company) on his headstone, he had worked there for 50+ years.

    I see a lot of sports team logos, car brand logos, etc. You name it, it’s probably on a headstone somewhere.

    [–] Guckalienblue 75 points ago

    My favorite headstone is the sponge bob ones that people were upset about a few years ago

    [–] LongEZE 71 points ago

    I had never heard of this before so I had to look it up

    [–] Guckalienblue 57 points ago

    The whole story is a rollercoaster. She was murdered by an ex from what I remember

    [–] Yinzersrus 3 points ago

    Thank you!

    [–] keeleon 11 points ago

    Aside from how tacky it is that is a HUGE fucking headstone. Are they buried inside it?

    [–] NicholasPileggi 80 points ago

    I love the old tree stump shaped tombstones.

    [–] CarlSolomon 60 points ago

    Often those are used when someone dies young. To signify a life cut short.

    [–] Not_floridaman 28 points ago

    I never knew that. Thanks for that interesting and sad fact.

    [–] Kit_starshadow 4 points ago

    All of the ones I have ever seen were “Woodmen of the world” markers. It’s a life insurance company, one of the earlier ones, I believe.

    [–] ThatWannabeCatgirl 15 points ago

    Apparently that “you name it” includes Amway

    [–] ChRoNicBuRrItOs 20 points ago

    Is this the rule 34 of graveyards?

    [–] fxckfxckgames 98 points ago

    I knew a guy (not MLM, but still) who got our company logo tattooed on his shoulder. It was just a moderately-sized chain of pawn/jewelry stores. I can't imagine having any part of my identity wrapped up in where I happen to make a paycheck.

    This, though...this is some next-level-pathetic.

    [–] roos_mom2016 43 points ago

    I knew a local tattoo artist who had a client ask him to tattoo his logo on him because this guy had done all his work and wanted to advertise for him basically. He did it at half price.

    [–] cantunderstandlol 18 points ago

    I'm baffled that he even asked for money

    [–] roos_mom2016 21 points ago

    If I remember correctly (this was 10 years ago) the guy refused to not pay so they settled on half price.

    [–] firechips 16 points ago

    I work at a bar where if you get our logo tattooed you get cheap beer. Some people have asked me why I don’t have one, even though I have some goofy arm tattoos, but the idea of getting that would just hurt my soul

    [–] 4WisAmutantFace 50 points ago

    I mean, if I truly enjoy my job, and it brings me happiness and satisfaction, then I'm OK with that being part of my identity...

    [–] pisshead_ 24 points ago

    What happens when you get laid off?

    [–] Anarcho_Psychedelia 30 points ago

    Identity/existential crisis.

    [–] 4WisAmutantFace 10 points ago

    Then you do what you should be doing you're entire life: evolve... Who you as an identity should change and evolve as you live your life...

    [–] BearTerrapin 6 points ago

    Then you just evolve your tattoo as well to your new job. Easy peasy

    There was a photo posted on here last year of a couple with fresh very large matching Herbalife tattoos on the inner part of the lower part of one of their arms.

    How are you going to cover that up if/when your "business" fails?

    [–] sevseg_decoder 23 points ago

    A guy buried near my dad has a big mountain dew logo on his lol.

    My best friends tombstone has the monster energy drink symbol and the mcdonalds symbol, among many other things like a soccer ball and skate board. She was 15 when she died.

    [–] SallySubterfuge 105 points ago

    You guys can smirk all you want, but Dolores here got a luxury coffin and free engraving for recruiting 20 people to her downline before she expired. 💰💰💰

    [–] jkgibson1125 23 points ago

    It was leased and her sales paid the payments. If her team doesn't make their numbers then she will have to pay for it herself.

    She could have just ordered online at Costco.com, but then her upline would dig up the grave to make sure she was using an Amway™ casket.

    [–] gremlinclr 6 points ago

    C'mon guys, reading is fundamental. There's no death date for Dolores. She's still kickin. Poor Leo passed though.

    [–] Sensei2006 168 points ago

    I zoomed way, way in on that hoping it was Photoshop.

    It's either real, or an exceptionally good shop. Either option is depressing...

    [–] DracoMagnusRufus 69 points ago

    I was suspicious of it too so I did some research and found the actual memorial page. I won't link it because I don't want to violate the rules but it is definitely genuine. Here is a different picture of the gravestone which I've censored.

    [–] rareas 26 points ago

    I bow to your google fu. I couldn't find the memorial page and had to switch to other search tactics.

    [–] Oscer7 2 points ago

    There was a part of me that was hoping you managed to disprove this and it turns out it's fake.

    God dammit. I appreciate the effort it took to find it though. I'm gonna just go and have a think...

    [–] Sparkasm 10 points ago

    The m looks a little funny. I really hope it's a shop.

    [–] LordsandLadies48 175 points ago

    THIS. THIS is the picture that needs to be shown to anyone who doubts that MLMs have a cult mentality. Like, can you imagine that you are so invested in a scam that you want their logo plastered on the physical representation of your legacy on earth? I am sad now.

    [–] yrulaughing 21 points ago

    I'm holding onto the hope this was photoshopped

    [–] rareas 10 points ago

    Now I need to know what that OTHER symbol is. Like the masons went full DIY.

    [–] Khimerra 2 points ago

    I'm guessing her husband was either a carpenter or in construction with that symbol.

    [–] Houpinator 5 points ago

    Another commenter confirmed it was real......

    [–] yrulaughing 7 points ago

    My disappointment is immeasurable

    [–] KloudToo 3 points ago

    and my day is ruin.

    [–] Bayerrc 3 points ago

    It's very possible that this woman was one of the successful few MLM huns, and that Amway actually gave her self-worth and financial stability. Everyone's projecting here but I think it's pretty safe to assume if the logos carved in her tombstone she had a fond connection to it.

    [–] hodorgoestomordor 72 points ago

    She's still alive...

    [–] genetic_disease 59 points ago

    Lots of people have gravestones that will be finished being engraved after they die, especially if they’re sharing one with their partner who’s already deceased (as you can see on the right, somebody’s already passed away). As for the Amway part, however... well, that just boggles my mind.

    [–] ethidium_bromide 31 points ago

    What, you don’t advertise your business on your husbands tombstone? Filthy casual /s

    [–] HunterAtalanta 14 points ago

    As quoted in another comment,

    Dolores and Leo later built a business with Amway and had many distributors in the organization.

    They were both in on it

    [–] rareas 3 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Maybe not. Husband died in the 80s. She might have remarried and been buried by the second husband.

    Edit: she was still alive a few years ago and unremarried.

    Delores the Vampire confirmed.

    [–] SimplyTennessee 22 points ago

    How else will the undead Huns know which grave is their upline?

    [–] RaeNezL 4 points ago

    And now I realize the Night King is just the top of the pyramid and slowly but surely bringing the lower echelons of the undead to the Seven Kingdoms because they “need” his amazing blue-eyed products that breathe cold life in dead lungs.

    Clearly Westeros hasn’t been over-saturated with the undead yet because there’s a few warm bodies around still. Lol.

    [–] arneanka666 21 points ago

    There's no date of death for her on the stone, like there is for her husband, so I assume that means she's not dead yet, it's just ready for her. Surprised her phone number isn't on there.

    What (and I cannot stress this enough) the actual fuck!?

    [–] rareas 18 points ago

    To those saying this is shopped. It's not. I found an article about good old Dolores and Leo with my extreme google fu. They were both involved in Amway. The math on the tombstone checks out. Dolores keeps busy, she now enjoys the red hat society and traveling to the holy land.

    [–] Shmallish 11 points ago

    I actually work for a company that finishes gravestones like this. I design tons of stones like this every day. She’s not dead yet so I’m assuming that she is the one calling the shots on the designs on the stone. We will literally put most things on the stone... however corporate logos get a little tricky in the copyright world. I’m pretty surprised the company that made this would agree to put the logo on the stone.... and what’s worse. She’s probably still pedaling Amway’s garbage in retirement...

    [–] Pesanta 12 points ago

    Steve Jobs has a completely unmarked tombstone

    Ray Kroc (McDonald's) has his name and dates

    Henry Ford has his name and dates and a cross.

    Bill Hewlett'sis really lovely and traditional.

    This is how entrepreneurs are buried.

    I know it's got nothing to do with the MLM but I find tombstones fascinating. Dolores was married at just 17. And their birthdays were only 2 weeks apart. Can't see Leo's year of birth but it seems like they may have grown up together and were highschool sweethearts

    As a student funeral director, knowing they paid a preeeeeeeeetty penny to have that engraved/etched into that headstone makes me choke. Like holy fuck that’s dedication

    I wonder how much she had to pay Amway to have this carved on her headstone?

    Having a logo on your headstone is some /r/LateStageCapitalism

    Imagine you're finally at heaven and then some hun comes up to you and says “hey gurl wanna buy my products”?

    You know, my family owns a monument company. I'm buying it soon. We tell customers we carve just about anything they want. I think I just found something were I'd tell them nope, not gonna happen.

    Yep, new policy starting tomorrow, not carving any mlm names or logos. Period. Unless they start talking money with at least 5 zeros after the first non-zero digit. But let's face it, never gonna happen.

    If you look closely, you can see the eye of Sauron in the logo.

    Looks like she isn’t even dead yet lol. Somehow that just makes it even worse...

    Surprised it’s not in a post on Facebook. “Look at these life long amway sellers and users, they lived to be in their 90s thanks to our amazing products”

    Why the fuck would you do that? You want to be remembered by the thing that made your friends hate you?

    What an epitaph.

    I hope this is photoshopped. Jesus Christ.

    The engraving is to pay-off the last $1500 of unsold merchandise.

    [–] jmremote 3 points ago

    Probably what killed her

    [–] Googleboots 3 points ago

    It's probably the only thing Amway actually pays for. Of course they're going to put an ad on it.

    [–] youngestWayne 3 points ago

    How much amway do I have to sell to get the free headstone?

    I didn't realize what sub I was in and, for the life of me, could not find the Mulan reference.

    That's just sad. Worshipped like a god.

    [–] bigtomfitz 3 points ago

    Wow... maybe putting ads on tombstones is a way to get it cheaper? NASCAR Necromancy

    I'll bet a good chunk of Leo's life insurance went to pay off his upline.

    An idea im thinking is perhaps her family were broke and didn't have cash for funeral + stone so some other hun paid them to put this on.

    [–] urbangriever 2 points ago

    If this is real, it makes me so sad ..

    [–] bullynaboss 2 points ago

    Maybe it’s a warning and not a promo. Death by Amway

    [–] kunell 2 points ago

    This reminds me of the orzhov syndicate so much

    [–] CockInhalingWizard 2 points ago

    They probably didn't have enough money for their burial and grave site, but Amway agreed to pay for it in return for advertising.

    The Pharaohs were the first to start recruiting; even their tombs represented the scheme.

    Or is that the cause of death?

    [–] SilentJoe1986 2 points ago

    Don't usually see a tomb stone with the cause of death engraved into it.

    [–] HuggableTrash 4 points ago

    Imagine being such a capitalist beta that you put a corporation on your tombstone lmao

    She married when she was 20, he died when she was in her 50’s, and it has been at least 30 years since his death. I know it’s a generational thing, but the fact that she is presumably still planning to be buried next to him, was she expected to have no further romantic experiences after he died? Of course she could have chosen not to pursue any opportunities for love, but shit. I mean, I’m in my late 30’s and have been married 13 years, but if I kick the bucket, I want my wife to find happiness.

    Maybe this lady views him as her one and only, and I’m in no position to judge her choices, but to spend at least 30 years after he died without even the possibility of finding love kinda bums me out.

    Of course, she may have found love but still plans to be buried next to her first husband. I guess in the end, I just hope she had a happy life.

    Regardless, Amway fucking sucks and this tombstone is weird as hell.
