"A Woman's Work Is Never Done"

"Honey, I'm home."

Torn from the pages of the UK Daily Mail.
A truly incredible, heart breaking story of love lost, love recovered, and then lost again after she grows cold.
Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives - for up to six hours after their death. The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.
Take heart Muslim Brotherhood, whether it be cancer or car accident, she's still there for ya. Just start the egg timer.
The subject of a husband having sex with his dead wife arose in May 2011 when Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari said marriage remains valid even after death.
This must be the "Praise Allah she's not complaining" section of the Quran. No headaches, no need for small talk, flowers or foreplay. There's no need to ask if she's awake if she's not breathing.
He also said that women have the right to have sex with her dead husband, reported.
Muslim men aren't all that sweet smelling when they're alive. Now let Mostafa marinate for four or five hours under the sheets during a Cairo summer. I'm sure the grieving widows will jump all over that. And just because you're a stiff doesn't mean that you're ... stiff.
(**This is an interesting rabbit hole but I dare not venture there**)

 I can't really say if this is true or not, but Islamic funeral preparation allegedly involves the practice of popping a cork in the arsehole of the dearly departed so Satan and his 99 dragons can't get in. 

Muslims seem to have strange ideas about the dead. It's like once you die you become a freaking Erector Set.

They also have strange ideas about the living.

I used to tease one of my past loves that if she died I would keep her around somehow. But... we both knew it was a gothic style sweet nothing. I certainly didn't want it codified into law. Youch.

Besides, I've "dated" British type women (from the jokes about their lack of movement, therefore the need to check for a pulse). No... thank... you... I stole a page out of Mae West's playbook... something... something about it not (my version) the women in my life so much as the life in my women... heh

Doom - I've stuck mostly to Italian woman. No complaints there on either the food or the lovin'.

I have no problem believing your average muslim could screw a corpse.

For years I've heard that whoever invented Spam had intimate relations with the dead. Now I know their religious affiliation too.
