"The undertakers were just mortified" They just couldn't resist the pun, eh?

The white zone is for composing and decomposing only.

Cop to hearse driver on way to crematorium:

"Hey, buddy, where's the fire?"

They should have parked on a dead end street.

Reminds me of the parking ticket and jury summons that my husband received a few months after his death. The death certificate cleared the ticket, but I offered to send his ashes to criminal court. Figured he'd do just as well as a few of the other stiffs who answered the call.

Double *SNORT* @ SW.

"The undertakers were just mortified..."

Isn't that kind of redundant?

A hearse walks into a bar....

...and orders a stiff drink.

(Tx, txg)

Then he leaves because the place is dead.

did you two rehearse that??

*snorks*

Why shouldn't they go after those deadbeats?

ofcorpse they do, Meanie.

A friend of mine named "Junior" told me he nearly went to jail for repeatedly failing to show for jury duty. Finally, "Senior" brought his infant son to court. He was dismissed from jury duty. The jury roster was never updated - he was called back to jury duty about twice a year until his 16th birthday. Funny thing is, they never summoned Senior, and he hasn't been called back for jury duty since 16.

Clamping is pretty extreme. They should have given a decease-and-desist order first.

They shoould have parked around the coroner.

I hope the family wasn't Oriental, cuz that would just be unbereavable.

Next time use valet (of the dead) parking.

I think it's time we bury this thread.

There are all sorts of jury duty stories out there. Awhile ago, a Boston couple made the news because they put their pet rabbit on their mailbox in their apartment building - "Phineas T. Bunny." The court system got in HUGE media doo-doo, because, after they sent a jury duty summons to the rabbit, it came out that they were getting rosters from writing names down from mailboxes.
The couple brought the bunny rabbit to court on jury duty day, after alerting the local news media photographers. Nice photo of big fat bunny on the front page of the paper.

Sounds like a plot to me.

One I'd stay a-wake for.

Maybe the meters were all expired?
