We Didn't Know He Was Dead

If I ran the world, they'd go free under the awesome-try rule:

Police have arrested two women after they tried to take the body of a dead relative on to a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Staff became suspicious when they tried to check in 91-year-old Curt Willi Jarant, who was wearing sunglasses, for a flight to Berlin on Saturday.

The women - his widow and step-daughter - said they thought he was asleep....

..."He was alive. He was pale but he wasn't dead," Ms Anusic added.

"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?"

Maybe they knew, maybe not. There's a video at the link; maybe you can tell. I like to think they had a situation on their hands and boldly went for the Weekend at Bernie's solution.

Dressing him in an Hawaiian shirt would have earned them bonus points.
