That sort of makes me wonder what happened to the fish...

On Tuesday, Mullarkey said, he received what he thought was an expected shipment of seahorses, anemones and corals from Vietnam via California. Before opening it, however, he discovered that the box's label indicated that it contained the remains of a man who had died four days before.

Apparently - and amazingly - the widow thought it was funny.

Curious - it's not a letter ... it's BODY. One simply must wonder just how that could be mis-shipped?

I'm glad the widow found humor in it.

It wasn't a mob hit that killed him, or he would have been sleepin' with those fishes.
