  • $\begingroup$ I'm willing to confirm that this is correct, but I can't give you the check without the last clue ;-) I can say there are two different clues in that, and that it has nothing to do with food. $\endgroup$ – corsiKa May 10 '16 at 19:47

    $\begingroup$ I'm giving max the check, but the mash is because, Morbid Fact Of The Day: urns of ashes aren't ashes, they're made of bones. When you're cremated, any fleshy material is completely incinerated and only the bones survive. These bones are ground (mashed) into a fine powder and placed in an urn. This is why they ask you not to spread ashes because you're spreading dangerous bone pieces that can hurt animals. $\endgroup$ – corsiKa May 11 '16 at 14:41
