On a creepy highway to heaven
Now that's how to do it. The family of a 22-year-old murder victim in Puerto Rico had the funeral home pose the corpse on a motorcycle.
The video made me think of a somewhat similiar story. Or maybe it's not similiar at all. Whatever. This story is from 1998:
"Dead Biker Tours Denmark: A Danish man bade his dead father farewell by taking the corpse for a motorcycle ride last weekend, stopping at a bar for beer and a cigar. The incident began when Flemming Pedersen asked the staff at the hospital where his 86-year-old father died if he could be left alone with him. He then dressed the rigid corpse in leather gear, boots, a helmet and dark sunglasses, and walked it out of the hospital. After strapping the body to the seat of his Harley Davidson with elastic straps, he drove around metropolitan Copenhagen for three hours, visiting his father's favorite haunts. He stopped at a curbside bar, where he bought two beers and stuck a lit cigar between his dead father's lips. Pedersen said that he took the last ride with his father to have a chat with him, and that he felt good about it afterward."
What makes this story particularly exciting to me, is the fact that good, old Flemming was from my home town. We went to the same school. He was older than me, but I totally remember him. See? And you think I don't know anyone famous.
