Two women were arrested after they tried to take the body of a dead relative on to a plane in Liverpool. According to BBC News, "Staff became suspicious when they tried to check in 91-year-old Curt Willi Jarant, who was wearing sunglasses, for a flight to Berlin on Saturday."
The women, his widow and step-daughter, claimed they thought he was asleep. They were later arrested for failing to give notification of death. And for reenacting a cheeseball '80s comedy.
Okay, so the last part isn't true. But come on! If you're going to go for it, go for the gold! Of all the gems of the '80s, you play out Weekend at Bernie's? At least dance through detention or steal a baby or travel in the DeLorean time machine…do something awesome! Don't just throw sunglasses on your dead step-dad and book him a flight to Germany.
Gah! Bad remakes are the worst! I'm looking at you, Planet of the Apes. I'm looking directly at you.
