And people thought my joke was bad

A man in Youngstown Ohio was cited for harrassment after he called the police and asked them to notify his sister that their mother had died. The troops did so, then found out that the mother was, in fact, not dead.

I can't imagine what would drive someone to such an extreme. The worse part, in my opinion, is that this guy was 35 years old. At least if he was in his early 20s, he could have claimed youthful ignorance and slightly mitigated his transgression. But, 35?! You must be full-bore idiot to think that's funny at 35.

You know something Steve? I have great difficulty believing that there isn't some sort of absurd humor in just about everything. This, however, is just short of psychotic.

No time to check out the related link, but I hope to goodness they ended up booking that man.

Sister was probably upset enough, but can you imagine how Mom felt? This guy is at least a half-bubble off plumb.
