    I used to work for a travel insurance assistance services and one of our former clients once paid us a visit, postmortem. It seems the funeral home got addresses mixed up and since we, as the insurer, had guaranteed the costs of cremation, they sent the ashes to us instead of the deceased’s family.

    It certainly gave our secretary quite a shock when she opened it and realized what it was. We quietly re-sealed it and forwarded it on to our client’s family without further incident.

    “Arabia said he believes the fish died as a result.”

    that last line cracks me up. what a way to end the article.

    By some strange coincidence, the deceased had been a Hungarian tobacconist who liked to argue in his spare time…

    @Matt Staggs, #5

    One of the best movies ever, although I could never figure out why the cadaver was coloured like a yellow highlighter.

    I live in Philly, and this was the big story among my co-workers earlier this week. Apparently the guy’s wife’s comment was that he had been a big practical joker, and that this was just his final joke.

    No, no, I said he was swimming with the fishes now..

    Goldie the goldfish and Ernie the turtle, can’t contain their excitement as they trade places with the cold corpse on the package beside their. This is going to be their best prank ever.

    “Boy will they be surprised.”

    The tropical fish wound up in the medical research laboratory. They are now comfortable living in salt _or_ freshwater. Or air.

    They also have laser eyes.

    _They_ made the most of the mix-up.

    Frank: Let me ask you a question: did you ever see that movie, “Night of the Living Dead”?
    Freddy: Oh, yeah, yeah – that’s the one where the corpses start eating the people, right? What about it?
    Frank: Did you know that story was based on a true case?
    Freddy: [chuckles] Aw, c’mon, you’re shitting me, right?
    Frank: I ain’t never been more serious in my life.

    “Send more paramedics”.

    The pet shop returned the corpse, but store policy prevented them from doing so without neutering first.

    “Ummm, my pet isn’t eating very much, and it smells kinda funny”.

    This reminds me of the Perry Bible Fellowship strip, Kitty Heaven:

    Could’ve been worse: they could have delivered a dead parrot which the store would then have had to try and palm off on some gullible customer!

    Was the departed a Norwegian, by any chance?
