“Welcome to my grave… Stay awhile…”

August 21, 2007

Kids, gather ’round the campfire, and I’ll tell you the true story of what happened to a woman in a German cemetery. Just pay no attention to those wolverines and hyenas howling out there in the dark woods.

It was a moonless night, very much like this one, and the wild wind played tricks with the woman’s eyes as she drove up the lonely path amid the tombstones. Well, maybe it was the wind playing tricks, or maybe it was the alcohol she had been drinking, because let me tell you, she’d had a few snorts over the limit.

Well, she lost control of her car and plowed through the graveyard, smashing headstones, until finally she came to a halt… in someone’s grave… And she stayed there, stuck among the dead, until the police came and pulled her out. As they lifted her out, what do you think that woman heard? Oooohhhhh…. She heard those police say she had done $24,000 worth of damage, that’s what.
