More fodder for the Germany-Florida fire...

Florida had the door-to-door OBGYN-impersonator last week, and not to be out-done, Germany brings us....

Woman nabbed driving corpse across country

BERLIN (Reuters) - A 53-year-old German woman who was driving her dead mother across country to save on mortuary transportation costs was fined by police for disturbing a dead person's peace.

"You're not allowed to transport dead people in your private car," said Ralf Schomisch, police spokesman in Koblenz, where the car was found after a tip-off from a mortuary.

"The corpse was on the back seat without a seat belt, which in this case didn't really matter. But it was covered up with clothing. It is a misdemeanour."

He said the woman, who was not identified, was charged with violating burial laws and disturbing a dead person's peace. She would face a modest fine, Schomisch said.

The woman had already driven 450 km (280 miles) after picking up the body from a mortuary in the northern city of Bremerhaven. She wanted to bury her mother, who died of natural causes aged 90, in her hometown Daun.

Exactly my thought. The body is the "clothing" of the soul. I could care less if someone kicks my shirt across the floor after I take it off.

It's just a shirt.

This is just the German government protecting the lucrative corpse-transportation industry. If it was legal to transport bodies by yourself, the fat-cat politicians wouldn't get to go out to the annual Dead Passengers Ball (thrown by the powerful corpse-transportation lobby).

I am all for capitalism, but it is wrong for the government to wh0re itself out to the highest bidder like this. ;-7

I considered posting something witty, but after reading that I just thought it would be pointless. That was freakin' hilarious!
