Tragedy was narrowly averted at The Lewis-Least Lawn cemetery this morning. Patient Zero had apparently collapsed and Re-died. One witness stated, “It looked like he had a heart attack.” Billy Bo Bob was rushed back to the 3L labs for immediate treatment.
“It’s the damn’dest thing we have ever seen, no reanimated person in our care has ever died of apparent 'natural causes' before today.” Said M. Lewis, 3L’s Funeral Director. “We have never attempted a 'Re'revivification procedure before, it has never been necessary.”
Co-Director Z. Least had this to say, “ If it wasn’t for the quick call to action by Dr. Merlin, and his deep understanding of Grandpas old formulas, ol’ Billy would still be dead, er, again, aw snap! You know what I mean. Anyway, it worked. Ol’ Billy is just fine now. His fall injuries are minor & cosmetic. His first groans were ‘Vaaadddkaaa & Ssssmmmookkk’ so we gave him a Bottle of vodka & a cigarette. He has been chasing squirrels in the yard & generally back to his old self.”
This reporter was not allowed an interview with Patient Zero, as he is prone to fits of violence and was said to be “More ‘bitey’ than usual”. No word on the apparent cause of re-death has been discovered.
