“Never leave one of the deceased in a room without a light on – it’s undignified.”

What’s wrong with corpse? It’s euphemisms that lead people to leave the light on, and a nice cuppa. Deceased, forsooth. Corpse, dammit.

My sentiments entirely, Ru; a stiff is a stiff is a stiff.

Indeed Jonathan. If I waited for my wife to open the fridge and let me out, well…
Seriously, I am deeply suspicious of this stylised formality towards the dead. I just don’t believe it.

‘one of the deceased’? Sounds like a piece in a machine to me.
And why not leave a person’s body without a light on in the room anyway?
Ru is on the money with the fridge light; and I – for one – completely trust his research. His wife is a good woman to eventually open the door .

Clearly embalmed. As any fule kno, the light goes off when you close the fridge..
