    Authorities in northwestern Pennsylvania say a man published an obituary for his living mother in a ploy to get paid bereavement time off from work.

    Relatives called The Jeffersonian Democrat newspaper in Brookville after the obit appeared to report the woman was actually alive and well. The woman herself then visited the paper. ...

    That's going to make the family Christmas visit awkward.

    They charged the guy with disorderly conduct? That's kind of funny. The employer should give him holy hell, and maybe even fire him, but disorderly conduct? Go before a judge?

    Jeez, Cops, go find a drunk driver or something.
