SANTA FE, N.M. —

An advertisement for a "slightly used coffin" raised eyebrows and the ire of some people.

The ad, posted Monday on a Facebook buy, sell and trade page, offered a "Slightly used coffin, only used once." The seller was asking $50 for the casket. A photo of a coffin with a discolored interior accompanied the ad.

The person who posted the ad told KRQE that it was just a joke to generate humorous comments. 

The ad did succeed in generating comments, such as, "That's a screaming deal," and "We have to URN your trust first," KRQE reported. 

But other people told KRQE they didn't find the ad to be funny and said it was in poor taste.

KRQE reported that in New Mexico, it's not illegal to sell a used coffin, as long as the buyer is informed of its prior usage.
