    Kiwi Scavenger

    From the Daily Telegraph:
    'Grim eater' banned from funerals - Telegraph

    'Grim eater' banned from funerals

    A fake mourner dubbed "the Grim Eater", who gatecrashed funerals just to eat the food on offer, has been warned off by undertakers in New Zealand.

    By Paul Chapman in Wellington
    Published: 7:00AM BST 03 Jun 2010

    The man attended up to four funerals a week, even taking home leftovers in a "doggy bag" container. Danny Langstraat, a director of Harbour City Funeral Home in Wellington, said his company finally became so irritated with the intruder's behaviour that it took a photograph of him, which it distributed to its branch offices.

    The firm also alerted grieving families to his presence. "He was showing up to funeral after funeral and, without a doubt, he didn't know the deceased," Mr Langstraat said. "We saw him three or four times a week. "Certainly, he had a backpack with some Tupperware containers so, when people weren't looking, he was stocking up," he told the Dominion-Post newspaper.


    Mr Langstraat said the man, in his 40s, was respectably dressed and did not look like someone who lived on the streets. "He was always very quiet and polite, and did as the rest of the mourners did in paying his respects." The man has stopped turning up since a staff member took him aside and had a stern word in his ear, telling him he could not take food home.

    Tony Garing, president of the Funeral Directors Association, said it was difficult to stop people attending funerals. "If it's in a church, or even in a funeral home, if a notice has been published in the paper it's essentially a public event."

    You're thinking of Pavlova. Add to that Phar Lap, Russell Crowe (you can have him) Split Enz, Ed Hillary (he spent a weekend in Melbourne once) Ansett (oops)

    Yup. Flew at least twice a month to Japan C-Class and all the other flights on ANA and SQ. Bastards . . . Ah, you're another Qld-Kiwi . . . Smart move.

    truth be told I really like NZ . . added to which Mrs Hat is a Kiwi . . . well, a naturalised one

    Wouldn't think it worth reporting as he's a Kiwi.
