    Corpse Stood For His Own Wake

    This is incredibly weird.

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) A Puerto Rican man has been granted his wish to remain standing even in death.

    A funeral home used a special embalming treatment to keep the corpse of 24-year-old Angel Pantoja Medina standing upright for his three-day wake.

    I don't know...that's just plain weird. It would be strange to me to see the dead standing in the corner.

    Man, after a long day, all I want to do is SIT DOWN. I can't imagine standing around for 3 days in the best of circumstances...

    I guess I could just sit all the time now, and tell people, "I'll stand when I'm dead!"
    Just thinkin' out loud....

    My sister just got invited to an 80th birthday party. For a man that's been dead for 5 months ! Wonder if he'll be there after all.....standing in the corner?
