Proud Parents

The word "necrophilia" in a newspaper headline always gets my attention. And mention of our Cheesehead neighbors to the north piques my interest. After all, Eddie Gein and Jeff Dahmer have given Wisconsinners a notorious reputation for defiling corpses. The TV show Picket Fences, set in Wisconsin, had a memorable episode in which a man kept his deceased bride in the closet, occasionally dancing around the room with her to "Let Me Call You Sweetheart."

In "Charges Dropped in Wis. Necrophilia Case," we learn that Wisconsin has no law against necrophilia. If you're filing that info away for future reference, well, I don't want to know about it. But another part of the story begs for comment:
Twins Nicholas and Alexander Grunke, 20, and Dustin Radke, 20, were arrested after an alleged attempt to dig up the body of a 20-year-old woman who was killed Aug. 27 in a motorcycle crash.
Yes, twins. Can you imagine how proud their parents must be, having two children who want to have sex with a corpse? If that doesn't inspire thousands to get vasectomies, I don't know what will.
