Mistaken Identity

Sometimes, identifying the body isn't as easy as some people might think.
BRASILIA, Brazil — A 41-year-old car washer from northeastern Brazil shocked his family by turning up at his own wake after his family mistakenly identified a murdered local man at the morgue as him, local media reported Tuesday.
Yeah, that would be a mite uncomfortable, walking into the funeral parlor while you're family is mourning your passing.
Family and friends in the town of Alagoinhas in Bahia state were gathered around the body of another car washer resembling Gilberto Araujo when he showed up after being told of his "death" by a friend who had spotted him in the street.
Car washing must be a hell of a job in Brazil.  I wonder who the corpse in the coffin was?
