The Champion Of Laziness...!

Some folks are too lazy for their own good. To them, procrastination is an art form. This next story shows how some folks work harder at being lazy than at their real job. It really doesn't make much sense to me.

The Crematorium Owner Who Made Laziness Terrifying

Imagine, for a moment, that you are a crematorium owner. Now also imagine that your crematorium has just broken. What do you do?

If you said, “Pay to have it fixed,” congratulations—you’re a sane human being. Ray Brent Marsh was evidently neither of those things. When the oven of his Georgia crematorium gave up the ghost in the late 1990s, Marsh decided that it’d be less of a hassle to just secretly bury the corpses in his backyard and give the families urns full of concrete dust so they wouldn’t notice.

That’s right: Marsh was so lazy that he preferred to do the much harder job of digging a pit and burying bodies than the much easier one of picking up the phone and ringing for a crematorium repair guy. He just didn’t just do this once or twice, either. When police finally raided the premises, they found over 320 sets of human remains that had essentially been left to rot. For his epic display of laziness, Marsh was sentenced to 12 years in prison. He’s expected to be released sometime in 2016.

I may be wrong, but it seems to me that it would have made more sense to repair the crematorium, other than bury all those bodies. No one ever said that this man was the sharpest tack in the box, though.

Coffee out on the patio this morning, OK?

Not the sharpest tack in the box or the brightest star in the sky. Just plain stupid if you ask me. Coffee on the patio sounds good; save my spot on the swing. The wind finally died down here - 60 MPH gusts. today the cold returns with snow flurries.

Hey Linda...
I simply can't imagine it still snowing. I'm certainly glad we don't get any of that stuff here.
Thanks for stopping by this morning!

He wasn't lazy to me but a penny pinching dog.

Heat has turned up here 83 yesterday and expected to be around 88 for today's high. Guess who was lazy this morning.

I've met folks that cheap and that immoral.

Hey Jo...
Pretty accurate description, I'd say.
Thanks for dropping by today, sweetie!

Hey Gorge...
Unfortunately there are plenty of them around.
Thanks for the visit today!
