The Holy Grail: Now Required

And we thought our government was ridiculous? Officials in the Brazilian town of Biritiba Mrim have announced a new bill that, if passed, would prohibit residents from dying.

The bill is a novel form of protest against governmental bureaucracy - the city's request for more cemetery space has been held up by red tape - that not everyone is finding amusing. "'I haven't got a job, nor am I healthy. And now they say I can't die. That's ridiculous,' Amarildo do Prado, an unemployed resident, told local media." No kidding.
