Roman coffin in the bushes

Did they SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING to get it out?

That was lucky. I doubt anyone would drag that to the Antiques Roadshow.

You'd think he wouldn't have survive long with all that money in his lungs

Hmmm. I've got a buddy who's an expert in 2nd century Roman sarcophagi. Mind if I give him a call?

You think that is funny; but it'snot.

I'd bury myself in that.

With Halloween fast approaching, here's a factoid to keep in mind: Since the economic meltdown in 2009 and deepening unemployment, two factors that have steeply increased the sucide rate, there are literally thousands of unclaimed corpses sitting in county and municipal morges across the nation. In my county alone, the morgue lists 850 unclaimed bodies sitting in cold storage.

The overstock has sent prices plumeting. Even the most desirable demographics - female, early twenties, drug overdose or heart failure with no physical damage, few reheats - have fallen to unprecedented levels. I picked one up for $35 last week. Five years ago the same freezer fun pop would've cost me hundreds. So warm up your curling irons gentleman! It's time to party.

Also, if you want bulk ashes to spread around your yard or throw from a plastic bucket at trick or treaters, there pretty much giving them away. Not to mention the bargain barrels of prescription glasses, sythetic eyes, and false teeth - if you're in the market for some replacement parts. Just make sure you boil everything for at least ten minutes and stay away from Ouija Boards unless you enjoy copious whining.

See you in the deep freeze!

Realtor: The washer and dryer are staying, but not the fridge and the Roman sarcophagus in the bushes.

Rufus Lee King: This just in: It was found to be the sarcophagus of Biggus Dickus.

Only appropriate since the man who found it is named Guy Schwinge.

The market for for Roman coffins isn't what it used to be. I have to dig all those flowers and weeds out of it. I have to clean it up and restore it before I can sell this thing!

It was supposed to be bad, so thanks for noticing! I always appreciate when people go out of their way to state the obvious and still somehow feel proud of themselves.

Can't really see the details.
Hold on a minute, let's clean off that baby and see what we have...

Egyptian pharaohs, the Roman Empire... what is with England's macabre penchant for grave robbing? -_-

Okay, that is just disgusting.

Must have been a christian Roman, as the pagans burned their dead.

After re-reading the comment on my computer I noticed the lack f space between the it's and not. I withdraw my mocking and give you a well played, sir!
