Controversial Tombstone This grave marker is considered so outrageous that Find-A-Grave won't allow in on their website. It is atop the final resting place of fifty-five-year-old John McCaffery who died in 1995 and was interred in a Montreal cemetery. His tombstone was jointly commissioned by his ex-wife and his mistress. (That's quite a combination!) Can you spot their subtle insult?

Yes. Read the first letter of each sentence downward is where the message is contained.

It took me awhile to see it. Plus, I had to look up acrostic. Great hint.

Acrostic: a composition usually in verse in which sets of letters (as the initial or final letters of the lines) taken in order form a word or phrase or a regular sequence of letters of the alphabet

John must have led an interesting life.

The engraver said he only realized the hidden message after he had finished the carving.

The cemetery has rules preventing undignified memorials, but this is so subtle that it escaped notice.

I considered it a subliminal message that only his ex-wife and mistress understood.

Is there truth to the old adage, 'He who laughs last laughs best.' Perhaps the reason for the subtle and defamatory message was because subtly John realized all his ambitions concerning the two females. One would think that both eventually had acrimonious relationships with John or were so disposed to believe after his death.

However, an idiot wrote the verse.
