WEIRD NEWS: One Cheesy Funeral

The family of a crusty old Pennsylvania guy showed themselves to be heroes by granting his dying wish -- to be buried with a couple of cheesesteak heroes from his favorite joint.

Richard Lussi died of heart failure, and we have a good idea why. His grandson says he always had a quick answer when asked what he wanted to take with him after he'd taken his last bite of life: "What do you think? Pat's cheesesteak! No onions, because they'll come back to haunt me." His grandkids obeyed his wishes and drove the two-and-a-half hours to Philly to pick up the sandwiches on the day before his funeral -- making sure to obey Richard's advice to "always buy two."

Pat's owner, Frank Olivieri Junior, said he was flattered and bewildered by someone choosing to be buried with his sandwiches. As for what the second cheesesteak might be for, he speculated, "Maybe it's a bribe for Saint Peter." (Philadelphia Inquirer)
