Too good not to share June 2, 2011

A family in Guyana was puzzled when the coffin of their dead mother arrived from the USA, sent by their sister. The tiny corpse was so tightly squeezed inside the large coffin that their mother’s face was practically touching the glass cover.

When they opened the coffin, they found a letter from their sister pinned to their mother’s chest, which read:


Dearest Brother and Sisters,

I am sending you our mother’s remains for the funeral there. Sorry I could not come along, as the expenses were so high.

You will find inside the coffin, under Mammy’s body, 12 cans of Bumble Bee Tuna, 12 box spaghetti, 12 Vaseline Intensive Care Skin Lotion, 12 Colgate Toothpaste, four 5 pound bag Canadian imported flour, and 12 ice apple. Just divide it among yourselves.


On Mammy’s feet is a brand-new pair of Reeboks (Size 8) for Papi. There are four pairs of Reeboks under Mammy’s head for Bayo’s sons. Mammy is wearing six Ralph Lauren T-shirts, one for Chun’s Husband and the rest are for my nephews.

Mek sure Stella sweet man don’t get none.


Mammy is also wearing one dozen Wonder Bras (your favorite), all different size.

I don’t think any gun fit Pauline; she bubby too big.

The 2 dozen Victoria Secrets panties that Mammy is wearing should be distributed among my nieces and cousins.

Don’t give Pauline big-battie daughter any of the thongs. Ah gun send hanes when Jaitoon brother in law coming down fuh de races.


Mammy is also wearing eight Docker pants. One each for Neville sons; give one to Poowah, she said she likes how they fit.

The Swiss watch Chubby asked for is on Mammy’s left wrist.

Mek sure you careful with it; it real.

    Is this article fact or fiction? I hope it is intended to inject some humour among its readers, as it certainly does not reflect compliance with the laws that regulate the importation of the dead. I have head this story many years ago but as a joke and I had quite a hearty laugh. I think, that most Guyanese who are living at home are in desperate situations but there is still hope once life is not lost. Importation of the dead is regulated by the International Health Regulation and Guyana is a signatory to that WHO document.

    Have a good laugh. This can’t be serious not with these vigilant immigration officers. If this is true they need to fire all those people working at airports.
    LOL X 3
