Marilyn Monroe

Grave Site BOMBARDED

with Marilyn Memorabilia

Marilyn Monroe Memorial
Celebrity grave sites are often marked with flowers and photos to mark a birthday or death anniversary ... but the memorial park that is home to Marilyn Monroe says they were completely overrun yesterday by fans of the late blonde bombshell.

A spokesman for the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery tells TMZ there was an "abnormally large" crowd on Friday -- her 86th birthday -- with people leaving items such as cards, photos, candles, statues, and flowers.

The spokesman tells TMZ they usually try and leave the items on the grave site for as long as possible (until they start to overrun neighboring spaces) but the clean-up yesterday for Marilyn went down faster than usual.

The Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery is also the final resting place of Janis Joplin, Peter Falk, Rodney Dangerfield, Natalie Wood, Farrah Fawcett ... and the list goes on.

August 5 marks the 50th anniversary of her death.

Now if only Marilyn would pop out of the grave like Return of the Living Dead and scream-sing...."DO YA WANNA PARTAAAY!"....a la Dinah Cancer from 45 Grave....

I find it bizarre for people to be fascinated with the dead in this manner. I have to wonder, how many people who took part in this display were even alive when she was? I don't get it... I mean I saw 'The Seven Year Itch' once.. So? Maybe they feel sorry for her very sorry upbringing? Okay, that's got to be it. Right??
