You Know Economic Times Are Bad When: Two Bums Can't Even Afford a Flophouse Bed and Have to Sack Out in a Couple of Funeral Parlor Coffins...
We've recently been blitzed with tales of how the rotten economy in Obama's America has really taken a bite out of the criminal element's ability to operate and get a little piece of the action. And now, reportedly, the economic strife and distress has even spread to the hobo crowd.
Apparently unable to even afford a cheap dive on a night when they felt like sleeping in a bed for a change, two tramps in Bristol, Tennessee got a rather sickening slumber on in a couple of coffins after allegedly breaking into a local funeral parlor this week (links to full story at bottom).
And these lazy bums even had the gall to sleep in! (Allegedly). When undertakers arrived to work at the joint on Tuesday morning, they reportedly found the two lying loafers still "peacefully asleep" in the caskets at 10:30 in the damn morning! Hobo dissipation. Not cool.
When the two startled vagrants got wind that the police had been called, they allegedly moved faster than a pallbearer in need of Number One -- jumping out the funeral parlor's nearest window.
One escaped, one didn't. And the one who got caught may for the foreseeable future be getting a permanent bed (free of burial charge) in the local hoosegow.
That's because the two vagabonds allegedly caused almost 10,000 bucks in damage to the two pine drapes in which they were bunking out. That means burglary and vandalism charges, boys. Talk about one sorry sarcophagus.
