This episode pretty much confirms what I love the most about the show. While the characters are all clearly rednecks, the level of intelligence that goes into the humor of this show is top-notch. It really reminds me of the Simpsons in that there's jokes at all levels here.
Anyway, there was a joke in this week's episode that reached Arrested Development levels of meta humor. They show a character making a post on the Television Without Pity forums before he died (squished by a Murphy bed folding up into a wall), and as it turns out someone working on the show had been posting to the TWP forums for over a year. In one post, he even expresses fear that his new Murphy bed will fold up and kill him. His last post is the one that they show his character making on the episode:

"No, I donít think shows should do more meta jokes that cater to the online bloggers and Iím sure everyone at Television Without Pity Dot Com agrees with me."

Also, the living tableau funeral director was funny. "I get sued a lot."

Originally, I had a mild opinion towards the episode. (I thought the last two weeks with the Cops and the My Name Is... riffs were better.) The John Waters cameo was fun, but the guy using l33t sp34k in actual talk was a bit annoying. I thought the TWoP namecheck was funny, but with the Office and Scrubs and 30 Rock following it, I promptly forgot about it. Alex, thanks for posting that info. Reading over the TWoP thread, its amazing how well executed that whole gag was. Especially the part at the beginning of his last post: "First, I have to admit that Iíve noticed something weird about myself. I talk out loud when I type. Does anyone else do that?" Simply Brilliant.

This one was good, but the previous two weeks were classics. The Cops episode was outstanding and showed how they all were before Earl got the list karma. Then, My Name is Randy, My Name is Joy, My Name is Crabman..... so good.

The real funeral had me in stitches.

First, the call center girl.

Then, the guys playing poker in person but still using laptopts KILLED me.

Darnel has like three homerun lines per episode this season. Everything about the EPA and his suit? GOLD.
