    Default Pizza ~ baked in coffin fired ovens

    Yummy!

    ROME (AFP) - Italian prosecutors believe pizza in the southern city of Naples may be baked in ovens lit with wood from coffins dug up in the local cemetery, Italian daily Il Giornale reported on Monday.

    "Pizza, one of the few symbols of Naples that endures... is hit by the concrete suspicion that it could be baked with wood from coffins," Il Giornale said.

    Investigators in Naples are setting their sights on the thousands of small, lower-end pizza shops and bakeries that dot the city on suspicion that the owners may "use wood from caskets to keep ovens burning."

    There must be some health Hazards to using old coffins as fuel, surely.

    I would have thought so, not to mention severe problems of practicality. I've seen coffins that have been down under for a while and they are all rotted away, like the bodies, so I'd have thought it would have been difficult to use them as fuel, but I could be wrong..
