Monday Joke

A tourist in Vienna, passing Vienna's Zentralfriedhof graveyard at night on October 31st, heard strange music softly playing.  Looking around, he saw nobody. Listening carefully, he discovered the sound coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827. Then he realized that the music is Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward!

Puzzled, he left the graveyard and looked for a police officer. After spending some time convincing the office that he is not crazy, the two return to the graveyard.

By that time the music has changed. Now it is the Seventh Symphony, played backward. Curious, the two men decide to find the caretaker of the cemetery and ask what's going on. The caretaker is quickly called and the problem explained to him.

"Oh, that's normal" says the caretaker. "He's just decomposing!"

As if that wasn't scary enough, I leave you with this:

Q: Why don't Jehovah's Witnesses celebrate Halloween?

A: They don't like strangers knocking on their door.
