The Six Feet Under Club

While the headline may inspire torrid fantasies of Freddy Rodríguez with a hot cadaver, this, alas, is much more tawdry. Seems some enterprising Wisconsin youths figured it was never too late, and set out for the graveyard to get their ghoulish freak on:

Police say the three men, carrying shovels, a crowbar and a box of condoms, went to a cemetery in southwestern Wisconsin in 2006 to dig up the body of [a 20-year-old woman] who had been killed the week before in a motorcycle crash.

The shovels worked, the crowbar didn’t, and they never got around to the rubbers — they couldn’t pry the casket open, and ran off when a car drove by. They were eventually caught and convicted — but they appealed on the claim that Wisconsin doesn’t outlaw sex with dead people.

And so, in a landmark ruling sure to be the highlight of next year’s bar exam, the Wisconsin Supreme Court declared this week that necrophilia is indeed a punishable offense.

Their reasoning? Corpses are unable to give consent.
