That's a slippery situation to slide into.

I'm sure it was a grave offense.

$5000 to clean up soybean oil? Really?

Doesn't quite add up....

- 15 counts of felony vandalism .

- a jug of soybean oil and used it on the tombstones

- The cemetery general manager said it cost $5,000 to clean up the mess.


$5k ???? 15 counts.... is that one count for each stone? So, like $300 each to clean a gravestone ??????

By the name, it seems he's Sikh. Any ideas of what ritual this may entail in the Sikh religion (if he is one)?

FTA: "There was no telephone listing for Singh."

What? Did the reporter check a phone book for Pete's sake? If there had been a telephone listing were they going to publish it? How's about, "Mr. Singh couldb't be reached for comment."

No clue. Not sure this is witchcraft though. X-tians annoint things with oil all the time (thanks mom), and I think Judaism and Islam both use oils in ceremonies.

As a stone cutter who fabricates marble and granite, I don't think the mark is off. The materials are porous and can stain, especially with oils. They probably called the different companies who fabricated the stones to come out, to try to get the original finish back. Acetone, Lacquer thinner, and sealers along with the time and labor to scrub them, would seem to add up i.m.o.

What kind of Sikh person defiles a grave?

There was no telephone listing for Singh.

Did you try 8Sikhs7-5309?

Dawn dishwashing liquid and a hose?

All my vices are driving me to an oily grave.

it's mine 6 x 4 lot .. STAY OFF MY DAMN GRAVE NUTCASE !

$5000 for cleanup is nothing compared to the costs and loss of life that would have ensued if this noble Sikh hadn't staved off the zombie hoard.

Thanks. Pretty much came for that explanation. $5000 seemed a bit much to me, too.

If that fails you can always try Pennsylvania Sikh- 5000.

Maybe the guy had good intentions, but he should remember that we have vastly different customs and beliefs in this country. Can you imagine an American, Canadian or whatever going to India and arbitrarily putting flowers on graves in cemetaries? In some parts of the world there are hefty penalties for approaching a grave if one is not a loved one or family member.

The only thing worse than an idol-worshiping heathen is a cheap idol-worshiping heathen. You're supposed to use ghee (clarified butter) for these kind of ceremonies. Soybean oil? Gimme a break.
