Weekend at Bernie’s 2008

I’ve just come home from New York – my first time there. What a town.
Anyway, with New Yorker’s accents still ringing in my ears, I read this and hooted laughing. From SF Gate:

‘Detective Travis Rapp has seen his share of corpses, but this was new: two men wheeling a rigid, pale body down a Manhattan street in a red office chair, drawing a crowd of suspicious onlookers.
Looking out the window of the restaurant where he was having lunch, Rapp initially assumed “it was a mannequin or a dummy,” he said. “I thought it was a joke, honestly.”
A closer inspection showed that it wasn’t. The man was dead, and two of his friends had hauled his corpse to a store to cash his $355 Social Security check, police said. They were arrested before they could get the money.’

Read the story here.
Watch me crapping myself at 10,000 feet (and other adventures) here.

Damien DeBarra was born in the late 20th century and grew up in Dublin, Ireland. He now lives in London, England where he shares a house with four laptops, three bikes and a large collection of chairs.
