No room at the inn

Don't You Dare DieSure hope no one in our government reads this – it’s bound to give them “ideas”:

Since the start of the month it has been illegal to die in Falciano del Massico, a village of 3,700 people some 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Naples in southern Italy.

Mayor Giulio Cesare Fava issued the tongue-in-cheek decree because the village has no cemetery and it is feuding with a nearby town that has one — creating a logistical problem about what to do with the deceased.

Naturally enough there are scofflaws:

“The ordinance has brought happiness,” [Mayor Fava] was quoted Tuesday as saying. “Unfortunately, two elderly citizens disobeyed.”

Makes me think of the legal prohibition against suicide; whacha gonna do, amiright?
