I thought she was just sleeping!

This is, uh, eye ctaching: Outrage as Egypt plans ‘farewell intercourse law’ so husbands can have sex with DEAD wives up to six hours after their death

Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives – for up to six hours after their death.
The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

Frankly, if my wife just died, the first thing on my list would be to go finally have sex with someone other than her!

But Egyptians are weird, I guess.

UPDATE (April 26, 2012): I should note something I suspected from the start (though I foolishly did not voice this suspicion): the whole story is a hoax. I think we would all agree it sounded too good to be true.

    When I was working in a warehouse in NY years ago we would often get into the typical conversations about sex that young guys get into. “Did you ever fuck a girl AND her sister?” “Did you ever fuck a girl in front of all your friends?”, etc. And then this one guy would always chime in with “Did you ever fuck A DEAD GIRL?” and we would all pretend we hadn’t heard anything. He eventually got fired for snorting coke behind a pile of boxes. To hell with it, no way was I going to look behind that pile of boxes to see what that creep was up to.
