Signs of the New Recession: Graves for Sale

Talk about feeling six feet under. The Associated Press reports that the economy has turned so sour that desperate people are now selling the sites of their future graves to make it through the tough times. Baron Chu, who brokers grave sites for resale (and how’d you like to have that job?), claims that the number of people eager to sell their final resting places has jumped tenfold, and that one client, who was recently evicted, sold her $6,800 plot for $500. “It allowed her to move into a hotel for a month where she can live and look for work,” he told the AP. If that doesn’t work, we suppose the organ black market is always an option.
