Bosnian man fakes own death to test popularity
GRADISKA, Bosnia - A Bosnian man faked his own death to see how many people would turn up at his funeral.
And he ended being very disappointed.
Amir Vehabovic, 45, was fuming when only his elderly mum turned up for the burial in the north Bosnian town of Gradiska.
Amir has written to the 45 people he had invited to his funeral, saying: "I paid a lot of money to get a fake death certificate and bribe undertakers to deliver an empty coffin.
"I really thought a lot more of you, my so-called friends, would turn up to pay their last respects. It just goes to show who you can really count on."

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

He invited people to his funeral? [In reply to] Can't Post

I would think that might cause them suspect the reports of his death were exaggerated.

At least his mother loves him. [In reply to] Can't Post

Apparently more than he loves her, poor woman! She has a son who would fake his death and didn't tell her till she showed up at the funeral. This guy has major issues.

Between the acting of a dreadful thing
And the first motion, all the interim is
Like a phantasma, or a hideous dream:
The genius and the plan thus inspired
Depart me and I, entering a room,
Find myself on the threshold, stand still
And wonder what I came to do there.

My thoughts exactly, Silverlode. [In reply to] Can't Post

with a mind that would come up with this stupidity it's not surprising that he hasn't any true friends.

Oh for pity's sake [In reply to] Can't Post

What he must have put his Mom through! Maybe she was in on it... depends on how good an actress she is.

He needs to be slapped. GET OVER YOURSELF!

Oh no!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Its a wonder his mother didnt kill him - for real!!!
What a stunt to pull *sheesh*

But how is it that he managed to actually get his 'fake' death certificate, and bribe the Undertakers to go along with it! Shocked

Well none of it has made an ounch of difference to his popularity rating - if thats any consolation ... I cant imagine him gaining any more friends than he had before ... like 0 anyway .... maybe a few more enemys though.

May the road rise up to meet you.
