New Mexico Family Sues Funeral Homes Because They Were Given A Bag With A Brain In It

Ok.  First, read this:

Albuquerque, N.M. (AP) – A New Mexico family is suing two funeral homes over a gruesome incident in which members unwittingly accepted a bag containing a relative’s brain and only became aware of it by the odor a day later.

This is a tragic and horrible thing for any funeral home to do to someone.  Someone goes to a funeral home expecting them to help ease the torment of losing a loved one and get through the funeral as easily as possible.  They do not expect them to hand them grisly organs from the corpse to hang on to.  I think that most states (if not all) even have laws against unlicensed disposal of human remains.

That being said, and I know this is horrible, but I have to ask:  If a funeral home hands you a squishy plastic bag, do you a) look inside to see what it is or b) take it home and put it on the table for a day or two.  Even if you thought it was a bag of personal effects, wouldn’t you look in the bag?  I mean a brain is like 3lbs. of mostly water.  How could you not think “Odd.  I don’t remember him wearing a football sized wet sponge."

I know. I am evil and morbid for asking, but seriously, I really want to know how the funeral home could do this and how the family would take the damn thing.
