Italians on the Beach with Dead Bodies

Maybe they aren't as close as they seem.

What are they supposed to do? The girls are dead.

Sorry everyone, two people who you didn't know who no longer can feel disrespected by you being in a bathing suit (which, incidentally, is how they had been clothed) because bathing suits disrespect the dead, DEMAND that you immediately abandon the beach, don black head-to-toe and mourn, mourn, mourn.

It reminds me of a scene from an old Italian move called L'Eclisse. A drunk steals an Alfa Romeo convertible one evening and drives it into a canal. Next morning the police fish the car and driver out of the water, in front of a boisterous, almost festive crowd.



Just remember that this is the same country that pioneered an effective approach to Presidential term limits by hanging Mussolini by his heels and engaging in a little target practice.

I would be too. One clown less to prosecute. Less waste of public funds.
