Rude Awakening

LONDON--The undertakers wheeled David Wallace into a mortuary and saw him move.

Mr. Wallace was dead drunk, not dead. His friends had called the undertakers as a joke after Mr. Wallace, 25 years old, had one too many and passed out.

Mr. Wallace was not amused.

The undertakers were not amused either; they sent Mr. Wallace a bill for the funeral he had missed.
