If You Die, We’ll Kill You

The cemetery in Sarpourenx, France, is booked up and there’s no more room. Since the neighboring town of Pau won’t sell them land to expand the cemetery, Sarpourenx’s mayor, Gerard Lalanne, posted an ordinance saying that “all persons not having a plot in the cemetery and wishing to be buried in Sarpourenx are forbidden from dying in the parish. Offenders will be severely punished.” He didn’t say how they’d be punished, but it’s a good bet fire, brimstone, having to smell overripe brie, and no Jerry Lewis movies for eternity might be appropriate.
