There's the friend whose brother cleaned out the burial fund, and used their father's body to run the HOV lane to a cheap cremation.
And my college professor who worked with a woman who came over with her husband with the von Braun gang, and years later settled in Illinois. There, the couple had problems with a deer eating the roses. They applied for a permit to shoot the deer. The state gave them one. They were allowed to shoot the deer.
As long as they did it with a crossbow.
And people are still complaining about Writer's Block because they can't think of any ideas.....
(Somebody in the State of Illinois was/is pretty cool.)
