Frozen Grandpa

Olmo Sivieri, born in 1914, spent 3 years in a freezer at minus 20 degrees, in Aosta. It seems that once dead, his son Gaetano put him there. It was the grandson that found him as he wanted to drink a cold Pepsi Cola.
The hibernated grandpa allowed the son to take home a monthly pension of 2,500 Euro. For a pension like that itís worth hibernating a grandpa even alive. The son didnít feel like throwing away this gift from God, and without wanting to, he has given new life to the Italian economy.
The young people are without work. The old people tend to save. Putting a pensioner on ice revitalizes the economy. The higher the value of the pension, the truer the concept. Just think of the pension that the grandchildren of Padoa Schioppa and Romano Prodi could be raking in.
Freezer companies with the slogan ďthe air of your homeĒ would be flourishing. Together with the old person, you could keep even minestrone and cod to be defrosted. The substitutes, hired to show themselves around every so often. To trick the pensions authorities. There would be so many more job openings. Everyone would certainly copy the head of the family, the one who imitates the psycho dwarf kept nice and cool in the mausoleum at Arcore. To prevent the defrosting of the Centre Right. The elderly pensioner gives flavour to the broth and pays the pension. Problems of possible decomposition, (always possible) and the disappearance of the fixed income could be sorted out with an insurance policy.
With the Findomestic for example. You give up a fifth of the pension and you entrust the mummy to them. If then a young couple happens to be lucky enough to have 2 parents who are pensioners and need freezing, well each one would have their future assured. A pension like an Indian potentate, well just like a parliamentarian.
