(Newser) – It appears Carrie Fisher's final resting place will be...a giant Prozac pill. A photo tweeted from Friday's private memorial service for Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, shows Fisher's brother Todd carrying what appears to be an urn in the shape of a Prozac pill. The Hollywood Reporter says it's further evidence of Fisher's "kooky sense of humor" and her honesty about her "battles with drugs and mental illness." "Carrie Fisher...has a better sense of humor as a dead woman than do most people who are currently alive," Jezebel adds.

According to Vulture, the urn isn't Fisher's first Prozac-related gag; she reportedly had her kitchen tiles made to look like the drug. "May you have all the Prozac you could ever want in heaven, Carrie," the website states. Paper reports some of Fisher's ashes were buried with Reynolds. A public memorial for both will be held in the future. (Read more Carrie Fisher stories.)
