When I was a law student, I dug graves to keep myself amused with cigarettes, wine and other sybaritic pleasures. I don’t dig graves these days, but as I get older I am definitely interested in the idea of supermarkets flogging coffins. I can quite happily picture myself, on a Saturday when I collect my shopping, wheeling a coffin out of of Sainsburys on a trolley, taking it home and perhaps using the coffin as a coffee table (and storage facility) until the time comes to get into it.
I just could not resist this story from the BBC this morning…. Halloween? What’s that? This is far more ghoulish. Have a good night if you are out and about on the night of ghouls.
