Mark Twain may be dead, but Justin Priest is not

Mark Twain: “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated
Seems that Juneau PD & Alaska State Troopers goofed a message & notified a family at 3am that their son was killed in a car accident. :smack: :o :frowning: The parents drove 45 miles to tell their other son, who collapsed when he heard the news. Then the three of them went to tell the supposed deceased’s long time girlfriend. When they knocked on the door, it was answered by the supposedly deceased man.

Story here.

“Did I say DOA? I meant DUI…”

I’ll admit I read that as “Judas Priest”. Who’s with me?

Yup, me too.

I looked at the title again after wondering why cops would be alerting the Judas Priest’s parents of his death.

“Early in the morning of Oct. 8, 1991, Mrs. Florence A. Snegg of Uvula, Mich., was having an extremely vivid dream in which her son, Russell, was involved in a terrible automobile accident. Suddenly she was awakened by the ringing of her telephone. On the line was a Missouri state trooper, calling long distance to remind Mrs. Snegg that she had never had children.”
