    Police: Pa. man fakes mom's obit to get time off

    Relatives called The Jeffersonian Democrat newspaper in Brookville after the obit appeared to report the woman was actually alive and well. The woman herself then visited the paper....

    I'm not going to mention those of us who may have killed off a grandmother in order to have an excuse for the prof for leaving two days earlier than spring break started.

    This could have been a brilliant idea with a little more forethought put into it. This man thought he could pull it off with his boss so we can assume his coworkers are not that familiar with his mother. That's good. What you do is have the obit published in a local paper from, say, Kyrgyzstan. Obviously your boss doesn't know your mother has never heard of Kyrgyzstan but the real beauty of it is that no one who has even remotely heard of your mother will ever read an obit written in Kyrgyzstanianesoid, therefore minimizing the chances of having your cover blown and becoming a national disgrace over a few days off.
