A Dead Body Lying A Few Feet Away Is No Reason To Interupt A Good Game Of Beach Paddleball


You know what always ruins a good time at the beach? When one of the people decides she’s going to make absolutely no effort at all to catch the Frisbee.

Italian news agency ANSA (via Daily Mail):

Authorities said two women sounded the alarm when they noticed the body of a 78-year-old woman in the waters at a beach in Formia, midway between Rome and Naples.

But others enjoying the beach seemed to pay no attention to the corpse, covered in a white sheet, authorities said.

Hey, this is a package vacation and we only get one day at the beach.

    There is a subplot in Robert Altman’s film “Short Cuts” where a group of men on a weekend fishing trip decide to ignore the body of a dead girl floating in the water, only reporting it to the police while on their way home.
