Romanian Remains Arrive in the Mail

Aurelia Cenusa of Romania was notified that the graveyard where her father was buried had been sold to developers.

She said she thought the priest was joking when he told her to come and collect her father Rafaila Cojocaru's remains - or receive them in the post.

Cenusa said: "I had entered a lottery a few weeks ago and when I got the large parcel I thought I had won something.

"Instead I opened it up to find a banana crate containing the bones of my dead father. You could still even see bits of his funeral suit even though he died 16 years ago." [Link]
I really wish this had happened in a different European country, so I could use the headline "The Czech Is In the Mail."
