Weekend at Bernie’s, Airplane Edition: Women Try to Smuggle Dead Man onto Plane

This sounds like a plot of a movie (oh wait, it was a plot of a movie):  Two women tried to bring their dead husband/stepfather onto a plane in Liverpool for a flight to Germany.  The women, who were wheeling the man in a wheelchair while he was wearing sunglasses, insisted, like the Monty Python parrot, that he was not dead, just sleeping.

And for the quote of the year, the stepdaughter summed up the situation: “A dead person you cannot carry to Germany, there are too many people checking and security. How can you bring a dead person to Germany?”  If I’ve heard that once, I’ve heard that a thousand times.
