Parked hearse serves up gravest advertising

Undertakers in Schaerding, Austria, have caused a fuss by parking a hearse at a notorious accident spot and posting an ad on the vehicle's side that reads: "We're always ready for you." In poor taste? Oh, sure. A town rep goes a step further, calling it "macabre and pitiless." And he's right. But wait until he sees the company's next project: a calendar with scantily clad women standing next to coffins. The undertakers promise "a high-value, aesthetic presentation," but we're expecting a train wreck of G. Gordon Liddy-esque proportions.
