And Speaking of Dead Folks…

This article caught my eye. I’m a fan of Jeff Foxworthy, and I immediately thought of his humor when I read:
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. - A woman accused of digging up and taking her boyfriend's cremated remains more than a decade ago - and drinking the beer that had been buried with them - won't face federal charges, a prosecutor says.
Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe De Cecco said Karen Stolzmann, 44, faces only a misdemeanor charge of possession of stolen property, punishable by up to nine months in jail and a $10,000 fine.
Stolzmann has been accused of digging up the remains of Michael Hendrickson from the Cambria Cemetery in Columbia County and drinking the beer that also had been buried, possibly out of spite for his family…
An exhumation discovered that Hendrickson's cremated remains were missing from the cemetery. Beer and cigarettes that were buried with him were also missing.
One wonders if the late Mr Hendrickson (and/or his brews and smokes) would have made it onto the database in yesterdays post.
