"We had even bought a coffin and paid a deposit for the funeral," she said.
She said her uncle was diagnosed three months ago with a terminal cancer, but that the family's prayers for a miracle had been answered.


Don't count your deposit as wasted yet.

Was his name "Buttle?"

"as his body had been tied up and his nose and ears filled with cotton wool"

Anyone know why this is done? No snark; sincere question.

A Brazilian dead have arisen? Oh, no. It's the Resurrection and I'm still an atheist. Hope infant baptisms are kosher. Too late for that total immersion crap.

Hi, Grandma! Long time no see.

Sorry I couldn't make the funeral, but I started a new job that week. It was too soon to take a couple days off for my grandmother's funeral.

I tore an ad for a Packard off the wood shed wall at an old house my father bought and behind the $500 car with the the most leg-room there was a story about a Mexican who woke up at his own funeral and caused some consternation among the congregration. Used to happen quite a lot before modern embalming.

Schoolteachers burned the house down. They liked to party hardy. Don't rent to a bunch of schoolteachers.

Standard mortuary procedure. They truss up the body to keep it from sitting up and plug the orifices so they don't leak. Death is nasty but the morticians know all the tricks to make the Guest of Honour look very life-like for the Big Show. Anybody remember that old joke? I think it was a running gag on Laugh In or some other show of the early Seventies or late Sixties.

I gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that that Brazilian wasn't dead to begin with.

we're gonna need a bigger body bag.

It must have been trans-Atlantic because I seem to recall Terry Jones doing the punch-line on Monty Python.

Yep, though they really should have done an autopsy before going through all that.  At least a cut test.  Can't mistake a living guy for a dead guy pretty early on in an autopsy.

That's why I prefer the bodies I transport to have already been autopsied; I have an active imagination and some deep, dark part of my lizard brain is always thinking the person in the back of the van is going to "come to" and scare the shiat out of me. At least those who have been autopsied are definitely dead.

I wonder how many people embalmers kill without knowing it.
 
2014-08-25 07:59:42 PM  

a particular individual: Was his name "Buttle?"

If they weren't dead before the autopsy...

He was then transferred to a better hospital where his condition was upgraded to "Alive"...

One of my friends back in high school had a Mother that was a beautician and one of her old clients wanted her to do her hair after she passed away so it would "look right".  The beautician was already creeped out but wanted to respect her wishes, apparently as she was blow drying the dead woman's hair, the heat caused her to move by some mechanism of rigor mortis.

Last time she ever agreed to that.
