Hey, man, what's under the tarp?



What could be under the plastic tarp that's uglier than... a plastic tarp? It must be hideous, because otherwise they would just move the tarp out of the way before taking the photo. Right?

(You're thinking "It's a corpse," aren't you. We all are. We just don't want to say it.)

it's Washington... the corpse is probably covered in slugs... leave the tarp!

No I didn't think "corpse"...

It doesn't look lumpy enough for a corpse. Unless it is a dismembered corpse, and then I guess that would...

Okay, I'll shut up now.

"Homeowner to do no work." Clearly.

And for the record, I wasn't think corpse. I was thinking severed limbs.

"She's dead! Wrapped in plastic!"

Umm... there is a bleach bottle in the second photo, yet I can't figure out where bleach has ever been used. I think that is the real mystery.

hmmm...i think that the bleach is there to comfort the kitchen sink

Bleach: don't worry, sink. it won't always be this way

T said...

the presence of the bleach bottle just lends credence to the dismemberment theory...

Do I watch too much CSI?

Well, the bleach wouldn't do much to shrink the body--you'd need a huge amount of very strong acid, such as hydrochloric, to do that job. But the bleach would certainly help with the cleanup process.

Okay, I'm scaring MYSELF now.

Desuko, you beat me to it!

One time our neighbor came over and, referring to the lumpy army blanket lying in our driveway, said, "what have you got there, a dead body?" She was trying to make a joke, but in fact it was our dog who had been hit by a car and killed.

So, tarp not really big enough for a dead human, but maybe they've got dead pets under there.

They failed to cover the nasty driveway.

It's a snow trick- throw it on your car overnight so you don't have the clear off the snow in the morning. That's all.
