Dumbass Idea of the Week: Keeping a Corpse

Actually, I don't know if this woman deserves my pity or my ridicule.  Linda Chase lost her boyfriend, Charles Zigler over a year and a half ago.  What's the problem?  She never reported it, and she kept the corpse in his favorite chair.

As if that wasn't creepy enough, she said that she would actually watch television with the corpse, NASCAR to be precise.  Holy shit, right?!

What makes this even more sad is her reasoning for keeping his corpse around.  She said that he was "the only guy that was ever nice to [her]."  Sad right?  And oh-by-the-way, she was collecting his social security checks for a while.

Have you read William Faulkner's short story "A Rose for Emily?"

If not, you'll love it.

FT, you're a pretty well read lunatic! Great comment!

Silver, I'm sure that was a part of it, but ya' never know, right?

Maybe she really just loved the guy that much. It wouldn't be the first time. Throughout human history, this sort of thing has been going on for a long, long time.
