    A New Zealand funeral home has stepped in to stop a fake mourner who was attending up to four funerals a week to stock up on food, even filling up tupperware containers to take home, according to media reports.

    Harbour City Funeral Home director Danny Langstraat told local newspaper The Dominion Post  that the "grim eater" appeared at up to four funerals a week in March and April to enjoy the finger food but clearly did not know the deceased.

    I know someone who would do this! He would think it makes good sense because a lot would probably be thrown away anyway. It was a guy who had never learned to read so he couldn't figure out rental agreements and such and lived in his car when he didn't have a girlfriend to help him. He was so excited when he finally started learning to read but I don't know if his attitude toward that sort of thing has changed.

    Her boyfriend just died.

       
                       
    - You met her at a funeral?
    - Yeah.

       
                       
    The dude died
    in a hang-gliding accident.

       
                       
    What an idiot!

       
                       
    "Oh, I'm hang gliding!

       
                       
    Honey, take a good picture...
    I'm dead!"

       
                       
    What a freak!

       
                       
    You met her at a funeral.

       
                       
    Yeah, I'll throw in a wedding
    every now and then,

       
                       
    but funerals are insane!

       
                       
    The chicks are so horny,
    it's not even fair.

       
                       
    It's like fishing
    with dynamite.

       
                       
    - Horny?
    - Yeah, crazy horny.

       
                       
    I just...
    at a funeral?!

       
                       
    Grief is nature's

       
                       
    most powerful aphrodisiac.
