GRAVE CONSEQUENCES

Indy Ground, email

AN OLD man and woman were married for years even though they hated each other. When they had a confrontation, screams and yelling could be heard deep into the night. The neighbours would often hear the man yell: “When I die, I will dig my way up out of the grave to come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”

The neighbours came to fear the man and believed he practised black magic because of the many strange occurrences that took place in their neighbourhood. And of course, the old man liked the fact that he was feared.

But one day, to everyone’s relief, the old man died suddenly. After the burial, his wife went straight to the local bar and began to party like there was no tomorrow.

Her neighbours approached her and asked: “Are you not afraid? This man stated that when he died, he would dig his way out of the grave to come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”

The wife put down her drink and said: “Let the old guy dig. I had him buried upside down.”
