Honest to God -- just about the time I think I have seen the outer limits of 'weird shit,' along comes something to prove precisely how narrow and unimaginative I have been.
Today it came in an email from a friend -- a news story saying:
Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives for up to six hours after their death, local media is claiming.I would like to think that this is some elaborate April Fools' tale ... a lie so extreme and so egregious that it makes the onlooker think twice ... maybe it's true. The Onion -- that tongue-in-cheek publication, came to mind.
Please notice that I am too damned lazy to check this out on Snopes. The tale, whether whopper or bald fact -- is just too delicious to interfere with.
There is "weird," and perhaps there is "weird-er," but I seriously doubt that there is such a thing as "weird-est."
