Trump Card

Abandon Hope All Ye Who Inter Here

The family of a Montenegrin man whose dying wish was to be buried with his mobile phone are to dig him up again after discovering they had forgotten the SIM card. Arso Banjeglav, 67, spent hours every day chatting to pals on his beloved mobile, and told his son Brano that when he died he wanted it put in his coffin. But after the funeral in Cetinje, they discovered his grandson, who was playing with the device, had taken out the SIM card. Brano Banjeglav, 38, said: "Now we have got to dig him up again to put it in the phone."

FOOTNOTE: Graveyard card? That's the ace of spades.

I'm a bit curious---doesn't the letter "I", in SIM, stand for something like intelligence? Maybe Brano(it sure ain't BRAIN-O!)should keep it, after all...!

EDIT, MAN---EDIT! You have SIX of MY days left, 'till that deadline!

I bet he's getting really frustrated down there with no service.

If they truly loved him, they would send him a BlackBerry down there. ;-)

I'd love to know how these type of news makes it in the international news circle. Grave whisperings?

it's not about the phone...when people lose a loved one they are willing to do whatever they can to accomodate the last wishes...

We knew a customer who signed up with some high pressure salesman for eternal Musak for his final resting place, I kid you not. All I can figure is that he carried great masochistic guilt about Karmic debt.

Your title is a good take on "Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'intrate.". I enjoyed it. :)
