    Talking How to beat long gas lines....Rent-A-Corpse

    Honest....I don't make this stuff up. Who'd believe it?

    HARARE, July 19 (Reuters) - Two Zimbabwean mortuary workers
    have been arrested on charges they rented out corpses to
    motorists to enable them to take advantage of special fuel
    preferences given to hearses.
    Zimbabwe's state-owned Herald newspaper reported on Saturday
    that a mortician and an assistant at a public hospital were
    arrested on Thursday and would soon appear in court on charges
    of violating dead bodies.
    The two are accused of running a racket under which they
    sold fake burial orders to motorists who then took the corpses
    and transported them to service stations.
    That allowed them to jump long queues to fill their tanks.
    After buying the fuel they returned the bodies in their
    coffins to the mortuary, the newspaper said.
    Zimbabwe has suffered a serious fuel shortage since November
    when a barter deal with Libya for the supply of nearly 70
    percent of its needs collapsed.

    Now....available for those "high occupancy lanes!
