Jesus. The google searches I’m going to get for this one…

Facebook just suggested I wanted to see a story entitled:

“Man arrested for breaking into funeral home to perform sexual act on female corpse”

My first thought was, “YOU DON’T KNOW ME, FACEBOOK.  That is NOT the kind of weird shit I want to know about and I really don’t appreciate what you’re implying.”

My second though was a mental image of a man performing a strip-tease while standing on a corpse, but I’d guess that’s not what happened.  I don’t know for sure because I didn’t click through.  I think it’s the wording that I find confusing.  That and, obviously, the fact that someone thinks corpses are hot.  That last part goes without saying, I hope.

I just think we can find a better phrase than “perform a sexual act on.”  There are too many variables and too much subjectivity.  Victor says there really isn’t, but I’m pretty sure if people are performing on corpses we can’t really rule anything out.

Also, I’m giving serious thought to cremation and to scrawling “FILLED WITH RAZORBLADES AND LEPROSY”  on my stomach each night, just in case .

And now, the weekly wrap-up of awesomeness:

  10. It is a family story that my mother’s cousin married a funeral director. Apparently she didn’t get to know him that well, but on their wedding night, he asked her to take an ice-cold shower and mentioned something about how he “likes them cold.” She escaped out of the bathroom window, never to see him again. Then, she got really really fat and lost all of her hair. So, there’s that.

It was made of awesome and win, of course, but mainly it included the note (in his section on Egypt) that embalmers there would leave the bodies of young hotties to decompose a while so that they would be a little less prone (well, less supine?) to abuse by the more desperate fellows in the trade. Just to show you that there’s nothing new under the sun. Or sand. Whatever.

Random thought– is McTurd Irish or Scottish I wonder?
