Hey You! No Dying!

I’m serious!

The mayor of a village in south west France has banned residents from dying.

And Gerard Lalanne has threatened “severe” punishment for anyone who disobeys.

The mayor issued the unusual edict when it became clear that there was no room left in the overcrowded village graveyard in Sarpourenx in the Bordeaux region.

In an ordinance posted in the council offices, Mayor Lalanne told the 260 residents that “all persons not having a plot in the cemetery and wishing to be buried in Sarpourenx are forbidden from dying in the parish”.

It added: “Offenders will be severely punished.”

However, the nature of the punishment – apparently a fate worse than death – was not specified.

Got that?

    A fate worse than death? I thought that living in France WAS a fate worse than death?
