In America, We Call this Thrifty

[From The Sun]

Faker banned from funerals
By STAFF REPORTER

A FAKE mourner was caught repeatedly gatecrashing funerals and loading up on FOOD — storing it in Tupperware containers in a backpack.

The man — who has been dubbed the 'GRIM EATER' by funeral bosses — was collared as he attended his 15th wake this year.

Funeral director Danny Langstraat said the man — who is in his 40s — was now on the radar of all undertakers in the Wellington area of New Zealand.

He said this week: "He was showing up to funeral after funeral, and he didn't know the deceased.

"We saw him three or four times in a week.

"He had a backpack with some Tupperware containers, so when people weren't looking, he was stocking up on food."

I was just going to say...
I know a woman like that! I am sure DTG was thinking of the same woman. But at least she vaguely knows someone who knew the deceased. I think.

I haven't been to funerals that had food. Somehow it doesn't build my appetite to look at dead people.

Ms. Moon & DTG,

Syd,
I'm with you, but after, I eat like a horse. I refuse to look at the deceased anyway. No fucking way.

Mwa.

Miss A.,
I love you guys, too. Wish I could meet you two for coffee somewhere. I may be in beautiful Toledo (yes, I jest) next weekend.

Have a safe drive.
