Measure Twice, Cut Once March 27, 2010

The April Fool’s Day Contest continues!   Post your best guess below.

If you are about to plan a funeral for yourself or a loved one, make sure you order the right size casket . . .

A few months ago, I heard an interesting, and rather gruesome tale, on a radio news report, about a very tall man who died in South Carolina.

After preparing the body for burial, the funeral home realized that the body was too long for the casket.

Rather than contacting the family to make other arrangements, the funeral parlor just cut off his legs.

Eeewwww . . . .

If you live in South Carolina, you do NOT need to worry about going to this funeral parlor as they have since lost their license to practice Mortuary Science.

I guess the state felt that they should have measured twice, rather than cutting once.

OK, guys . . .

I think I might have seen something like this in the TV series “Six Feet Under.” Gruesome…

Eeewwww! is right. I hope this is falce. But I’m afraid I’m going to have to say true. Due to the fact, that it sounds like something that could,
unfortunately happen.

Being a lawyer, I’ll bet you’ve seen it ALL… But even though this is probable, I’ll say FALSE this time — since no one else did…
