True To Form

I heard a story tonight (I'll explain later with pictures) that I thought was too funny not to share before I hit the hay.  I can't vouch for its accuracy. We'll all have to google tomorrow.

As I hear it the man who developed the concept of the department store lived and died in New York City. He was buried in the graveyard of St. Mark's Church. At some unspecified time later his grave was robbed and his wife received a ransom note demanding $20,000 for the return of his body. She paid $18,000 and got a bag of bones which she interred under his name in the famous Greenwood Cemetery.

The wife of the inventor of the department store gets a ransom note for his body and her response is to haggle for the discount.

Now, that's comedy.
