WTF Wednesday


Looking for a final resting place?  You are in luck!  The King's crypt is up for grabs.  The original tomb where Elvis Presley's remains were once laid to rest in Forest Hills Cemetary in Memphis Tennessee is vacant and waiting for you.  As the King's remains were relocated to Graceland, the Forest Hills crypt will be auctioned of in June.  The deal includes the crypt, opening and closing of the mausoleum for burial, an engraved memorial, and use of the chapel for a service.  Costs of funeral home services and transportation to Memphis are not a part of the package.

***********************


A brain surgeon from Denver, Colorado thought it would be fun to bury an engagement ring in the sand for his intended future bride to find while randomly digging in on the beach in Naples, Florida.  The only problem?  He forgot where he buried it.  After a couple of hours of digging, they had to hire someone with a metal detecter to search for it.  The ring was found eventually, but man, you wouldn't think getting engaged was as complicated as brain surgery!

*******************



Two convicted murderers escaped from an Arkansas jail by cutting through the window bars with a hacksaw blade.  Officials had no clue how the blade had been acquired.  Was it perhaps baked in a cake, or a batch of brownies?

*********************


Sorry, no photo for this one--you'll thank me!

A naked man was shot to death while trying to eat the face of a homeless man.  Yes, you read that right!  When he continued munching after several demands that he stop, the officers opened fire.  He ate on, until the 6th bullet finally killed him.

I'm at a loss for words here, but he could have at least dressed for dinner!  (Whoops!  Maybe that was in poor taste?)

I've heard that Elvis was worth more dead than alive--not my words. I loosely quote from that great authority on all things--the net.

I don't think the brain surgeon should be so quick to publicize that diamond ring stunt. Who would want brain surgery done by a ditz?

A naked man eating someone's face???
Ugh! Urk! Luckily I didn't read this earlier when I was eating dinner. Fully clothed of course.

Too funny! Thanks for my laugh of the day and for stopping by to make my SITS day so fun.

OMG to the man eating the face off. Bageezus. That's beyond my distorted imagination even. And the brain surgeon? What an idiot!

This column, though aptly named, could also be called Stranger and Stranger! Fact out weighs fiction in it's oddness once again. The face eater and the tomb of Elvis are just weird. The ring? Can you imagine the stress?????????

Denise Malloy said...

I don't think I want Elvis' tomb thank you. but women my age and younger were the ones to go ape ____ over him. Wht didn't they tell him they would take him to the big mac.

1) Does the Elvis mausoleum pic look like a bizarro smiley face to you?

2) I saw that face-eating story the other day... and wondered what kind of condiments a naked man brings to such a feast.

Ah, the crazy Miami zombie. My office in Columbus, Ohio was all a-flutter about it yesterday. Zombie Apocolypse! More like terrible, sickening drugs.
Interesting news items, Eva! :)
