Waaaait for it....

>> Sunday, April 29, 2012

I think I saw this on Facebook: someone probably linked to The Huffington Post's regurgitation of a story that the Egyptian parliament was thinking about making it legal for husbands to have farewell sex with their recently-deceased wives. Which seems like an odd law even on its face, since there's really nothing precluding anybody in the world from having sex with their dead wives, it's just that it's probably a bad idea for them to talk about it in those localities where it might be illegal or in poor taste. So if you think about it that way, the purported story was really about making it possible for Egyptian husbands to talk about having sex with their dead wives without fearing the conversation might be used as evidence at trial.

"Purportedly" because I see today that Salon's Alex Pareene is pointing to a Christian Science Monitor piece debunking the whole story. Egypt's parliament isn't, in fact, deliberating over whether or not husbands ought to be able to legally have sex with their recently-dead wives, or, more accurately, brag about it afterwards.

Really, the claim Egypt is contemplating legalizing sex with Egyptian corpses should never have passed a sniff test or gotten any traction from anyone at all.

I mean, please--everybody knows you're not supposed to have sex with your mummy.

Glad we could wrap that up.

You suck.

Of corpse I'm sure they'll bury their mistake, Dr. Phil. The plot deepens....

Well, then, there would be TWO stiffies.

It should also be noted that having sex with someone else's dead wife make for the perfect affair. No one talks.

Eww.
