Weekend at Bernie's III: SA style

"Port Elizabeth: A shocked FNB customer yesterday described her disbelief at seeing three people, believed to be loan sharks, pushing a corpse in a wheelchair into the North End branch 'to make a pension withdrawal'.

Officials at Mount Road police mortuary yesterday identified the dead man as Thozamile Patrick Apolis, 40, of Magi Street, Zwide.

Aaah. Ha ha. As pathetic as the story is, its still pretty darn funny. I do smell a cover-up though: seeing as this all happened at an FNB branch, its quite possible that Mr Apolis was alive and well when he rolled up to the back of the queue in the morning, but died during the course of the afternoon due to chronic frustration and boredom. Thanks again, Harps.
