  • Would you pull this car over?

    I wish I'd been able to get a picture, but my iPhone was being a jerk, so you have to visualize.

    I was off duty in my personal vehicle when I see a 2010 Mazda Tribute. No dents or dings, it was well maintained. All working lights. Valid tag. Driver was using turn signals to change lanes, following all traffic laws, etc. The driver was probably about 38-42, female, clean and neat, not texting, not doing makeup, nothing. By all accounts, this was just a woman driving down the road doing nothing wrong.

    EXCEPT...

    In the back seat, strapped in with a seat belt -- was a skeleton.

    My first thought was that she was a school teacher heading to school, maybe a biology teacher or something. Then again, it is getting semi-close to Halloween. At any rate, it had the color striations that appeared to resemble true bone. I really didn't think much about it past that, just telling myself it was a prop.

    But after I got to my destination I started thinking - this is a messed up world. Exactly can I know that its not the skeletal remains of her missing husband, that she just rides around with in the car because she misses his company?

    I really wouldn't have only pulled her over to get a picture of it - because it was just slightly bizarre (especially the "buckled in" part.)

      I wonder if she would qualify to drive in the carpool lane?

          No. It is a huuuuuge stretch to say that a skeleton in the back seat could have been real human remains, especially saying that the coloration was so close to real bones. No court, anywhere, would uphold the stop.

            Yeah, I think I'd have passed on that one.

                A "human remains" skeleton would not sit up in a car.................unless it had been wired together.

                  She probably had just stolen it from the med school at the university.

                  Or... she just wanted to play head games with the coppers.

                    were there rods and wires holding the bones in place??? If you have EVER seen a Skelton in biology or anatomy they have such and tubes to resemble cartilage. if the skeleton was up right, nope its a prop or teacher. Just a thought

                      Around here I would just assume that they got tied up in road construction and someone had passed away of old age.

                        This would fall under the same category as the people who have the fake feet or arms sticking out from the trunk.

                          I'm always tempted to pull them over and pretend I think they're legit.

                              Boy traffic must have been really bad that day. Poor guy passed away and rotted before getting to his destination.
