Weekend at Bernie's Update

Women arrested in UK for taking corpse onto plane: "Police have arrested two women at an British airport after they reportedly tried to smuggle a corpse onto a flight.

Police said Tuesday the women were detained at Liverpool's John Lennon airport 'on suspicion of failing to give notification of death' of a 91-year-old man.

The BBC and other British media reported that the women placed the man, a relative of theirs, into a wheelchair and covered his face with sunglasses in a bid to get him aboard a flight to Berlin."

Hat tips to Jeff Meyerson and Art Scott, who says they were probably trying to dodge the checked baggage fee.
