A German man hid his dead mother in a bathtub under a heap of rubbish in their back garden and then continued to collect her pension.

DON'T waste money on expensive paper shredders to avoid having your identity stolen. Simply place a few dog turds in the bin bags along with your old bank statements..

I seriously doubt that this old woman said:

"Now, Junior, when I die, I want you to wrap me in a plastic bag and stuff me in that crappy bathtub out back. Don't call anyone and tell them I have died so that you can collect my pension."

It was probably more like:

"When I die, I want to be buried in my garden. I loved it so . . . " and said a bit whistfully.

That is, if she wanted it at all. The world may never know.
