Catapulting Corpses

I am almost too embarrassed to post this...

...but notice how I said "almost"??

We are here in Ft Myers, having a delightful vacation with the kids.

Tonight, we went to La Casita, an "authentic" Mexican restaurant.

The restaurant had a TV tuned into a Spanish station, which was broadcasting the evening news. With our limited Spanish, we could deduce that they were doing a rather morbid story...according to the report, it appears that the morgues in Arizona are "filling up" with illegal aliens, who are dying due to the extreme heat, and then not being claimed for proper burial.

(Yeah, I know...a GREAT dinner time news story, huh?!)

My 17-year old son watched the story, and then decided he had the perfect solution for Arizona's problem. He said, in all seriousness, "Why can't they just bury them at sea?"

Uh, yeah...cuz Arizona has the most wonderful beaches and oceans surrounding it, huh?!


Of course, Hubby didn't help, when he added, in a deadpan voice, "Yup...Arizona can just catapult them across California into the Pacific Ocean."

(And's embarrassing to know that my son is getting SUCH a wonderful geography education!)

Arizona is closer to Mexico than it is to the Pacific Ocean.

Just sayin'... smaller catapults. :-)
