Mystery Coffin
A woman walking her dog in the Welsh countryside recently found an empty coffin sitting in the middle of a field. The coffin had a note in it: "Jump in, you're next."

No one knows who put the coffin there, but the likely suspects are local students since it's freshman week and there have been other pranks in the region, such as "a tree full of knickers and a young driver sticky taped into his car." Link: North Wales Chronicle

Sticky taped? As opposed to what? Repellent tape?

Well, there is tape that's not sticky, it's just. . .tape. Music tapes, for example. Or the tape put up around accident scenes.

"Sticky Tape" is just what it's called here in the UK for all the Americans out there. It may be a bit redundant, but that's the way it goes.

I wonder if anyone did "Jump in" I would've, at least I would have after dragging it up a steep hill so I could slide down in it.

It was us!!! We're not students, we're Bangor locals smile It was just me and a couple of mates pissed, it was one of our birthdays. It was no intentional prank! It just seemed like a good idea at the pissed time raspberry
