Would You Sleep In A Coffin? These Guys Did!
Would you sleep in a coffin? You’re probably wondering why I would even ask that question. I came across a story in the news today about two guys in Tennessee who were caught sleeping in coffins at a funeral home. Who would do that?
The Tri-CityHerald reports police were called to a funeral home in Bristol after employees found two men sleeping in caskets. The pair took off, one was nabbed and the other got away.
This is just weird, but these guys are not alone. Last week, Fox News had a story about a Brazilian man who has slept in a coffin for years to honor a deceased friend. The Star had a story this week about devotees of a Chinese temple who believe sleeping in a casket will rid you of bad luck. “NCIS” fans may know the character “Abby” sleeps in a coffin. And, of course, Dracula slept in a coffin.
The whole idea though freaks me out. I don’t think I could comfortably even lay down in casket without being nervous about getting trapped inside somehow. No way! Would you, could you, sleep in a coffin?
