Here's a fishy story

Employees of a Pennsylvania pet store expecting a shipment of tropical fish and salt water received a man's dead body instead. Mark Arabia owns the Pets Plus store in northeast Philadelphia, where the mix-up was discovered Tuesday. He said he learned the body was that of a 65-year-old San Diego-area man who died of early onset Alzheimer's disease. The deceased man's wife said she was shocked initially, but found the former mailman's posthumous postal mix-up funny. The body was supposed to go to a research laboratory in Allentown, 70 miles away. The fish were left at the airport and probably died. Source

I can't say this surprises me. They're constantly delivering our mail to the wrong place and delivering other people's mail to us out here in San Diego.
