Diwali

A couple of weeks ago there occurred the Hindu festival of Diwali.

Adolf was reminded of this when he read today this story of Diwali of Diweek, a funeral director.

Only in New Zealand could you get such lurid detail printed in a newspaper. Just when you think it can't get worse, it does.

Only in the rain sodden Waikato could you get a grave full of water.

Only in Waikikamukau would they not think to pump out the grave BEFORE the funeral.

Only the Bros would jump into the hole to try and keep the bastard from standing up!

Only in America would someone by now have sold the television rights to the story.

Cemeteries are MEANT to be sited in free draining land so that this does not happen.

it actually happens more often they'd you'd like to think...they often try to hide the water by dropping straw into the bottom of the grave...though I've never seen a coffin actually float before...a mixture of hilarious and very nasty
