Fight Against Maturity

An offer you can’t refuse?

Burial plot

Officials in an Italian town are selling lottery tickets – for places in the local cemetery.

Marano, near Naples, has run out of room at the town’s cemetery and had to create a new “emergency” graveyard containing 48 plots. But they feared people would try to bribe officials to get plots and decided to stage a lottery instead.

The public lottery means families winning places will be guaranteed a grave plot.
