    Default Well that was fun ... NOT!!!

    So my sis had decided that she wanted a flower/plant bed along the back of her house, and dutiful brother that I am I drove down to help her out. All was going swimmingly until one hole we were digging in which to place a hosta division. The hole was about 4 or 5ft (roughly 1.5m) from the back wall of her house. We had only dug down about 1-1.5ft (30-45cm) when we came across these:

    We were not amused. What imbecile buries bricks in the yard?! We later found two more brick chunks as we spot dug, leaving us to wonder just how many more bricks might have been consigned to "shallow graves" that we had not found. My sis joked that "It could have been worse. We could have found an actual body." To which I replied "I would have preferred finding a body. Not only would it have made for a more interesting story, but then we could have gotten the police/FBI to do all the digging."

    Perfectly reasoned Paul. Couldn't have done better myself. Get the cops to do the digging! 

    You could still call them in and mention Hoffa.
