My Kind Of Town
A report on just how fun strangeness can be from Reuters (Motto: “One Man’s International News Corporation Is Another Man’s Sucking Chest Wound”).
Nederland, Colorado — about 100 miles from the VodkaCondo — has proclaimed this Saturday “Frozen Dead Guy Day.”
Dead Norwegian Bredo Morstoel was shipped to Nederland by his slightly nutty grandson Trygve Bauge, where he was cryogenically frozen. I hear you asking yourself, “Tiny Nederland, Colorado has a cryogenics clinic?”
Well, not exactly.
But Trygve (pronounced “Bob”) has a shed in his backyard, and, apparently, an ice maker in his fridge that just won’t quit.
So the town has planned a celebration in Morstoel’s honor, including a coffin race, a pancake breakfast, and — of course — a frozen dead guy look-alike contest.
Lord of the Rings star Christopher Lee is considered a shoe-in.
