Ghastly Business

No, it's not a horror movie, but it sounds like one:

From comes
this ghastly article
about the owner of a biomedical supply house and three others who were charged with carving up corpses and selling the body parts for use in transplants.

Prosecutors say that the indictment was the first set of charges to come out of a widening scandal involving scores of funeral homes and hundreds of bodies, including that of "Masterpiece Theatre" host Alistair Cooke, who died in 2004.

Oh, Margaret! You can't read this one without questioning the humanity of these degenerates who stop at nothing for a buck. It makes me wish I had the ability to plop these guys into one of those re-animated dead movies and have the desecrated corpses get their revenge...slowly...because sometimes prison just isn't punishment enough.

Yes, I watch too many horror movies...

This inspires all kinds of awful mental images.

You'd think someone would learn. This is something that has gone on for years. I remember a talk show several years ago discussing with families the fact that the cremated remains weren't always all there. Imagine using dirt and sand and mixing human remains, ugh. Just stuff me and stick me in a corner. Can't trust anyone!

Jill, no offense, but your idea is quite creepy too ;-)

That's all very disturbing. So is this. "Yes, I'd like mom in a classic Tiffany solitaire setting please, and while you're at it place dad next to her as two side stones."

rgmb: yes, I've seen the commercial for this on TV. The woman is talking about her father's passing and how much better she feels wearing this gem thing. ICK.

To each his own, I guess. I think it's ludicrous.

Just as a side note: Can anyone identify the photo I posted?

cube said...

OK, don't all comment at once or you'll inundate the server... ;-)

OK, you twisted my arm. It is an x-ray of Titian's "Prometheus and Andromeda".
