New Orleans socialite Mickey Easterling sees your open casket, and she raises you a full-on “Weekend at Bernie’s” extravaganza.

The philanthropist and political activist died last week at age 83, and she left behind specific instructions for her wake and funeral.

Dressed in a pink feather boa, with a cigarette and champagne flute, and the word “bitch” emblazoned on a broach on her shirt, she insisted that she be propped up a bench during her wake, overlooking the festivities.

Especially considering her age, this may be even more badass than the dead boxer who was propped up in the ring for his wake for family and friends to take pictures with.
