A Wellington funeral home in New Zealand have been forced to stop a man from gatecrashing funerals. The man, who was spotted at between three to four funerals a week, didn’t know any of the deceased and was seemingly just there for the food and leftovers. The man did dress smartly and was very polite, however, when it came to taking food he wasn’t very discreet, he had a backpack full of tupperware containers. When a funeral home staff member finally decided to confront the man, telling him he could attend the funerals but couldn’t take food home, he simply left, never to return.

Now loons, I don’t want you getting any ideas but a South Korean guy who ran a second hand shoe business has been caught stealing expensive shoes from funeral homes. In Korea it is tradition to remove your shoes before going indoors so what better place to get decent shoes than from people paying their respects to the dead. The man, only known as Park, is alleged to have stolen some 1200 pairs of shoes. All he did was enter the mourning room pay his respects and then don on someone else’s shoes when he departed. Brilliant. When police raided his home there they all were in shoe size order ready for resale.
