Felicity Marmaduke is a hoax. Really.

I would like to thank whoever wrote this article for the surge in web traffic as apparently for a little while everyone and their mother who wanted to know if this story was true wound up here at SDPL. That actually kind of terrifies me.  A few days later Snopes came forth with this article which also debunks the Felicity Marmaduke story as satire.

People have been posting this story on my Facebook a lot, my comments are below the blockquote:
Dead man in mortuary impregnates woman
The Rolling Stones said it best, “You, you make a dead man cum.” A 38 year old female mortuary worker is being held on $250,000 bond after becoming pregnant by one of her clients-a dead man. The alleged crime took place at the Mourning Glory Mortuary just outside of Lexington, Missouri. Police have charged Felicity Marmaduke with desecration of the dead and necrophilia.

A Google search for "Felicity Marmaduke" finds nothing but this article and blogs related to this article, so I'm forced to call this what scholarly jargon would term "bullshit."  When you read the rest of the site you get such articles as "Minnesota Vikings confront Brett Favre in shower" which details a story of the Minnesota Vikings holding Favre down in a shower to compare his genitals to those he allegedly sent to Jennifer Sterger.  As a Wisconsinite I have a hard time believing I wouldn't have heard this had it actually happened, so our source is satire, something like The Onion News (the primary difference being that The Onion is actually funny).

I do think it's important that this be mentioned, though, because there seems to be an unfortunately high number of people presenting this story as fact when it in fact is not.


  1. Not a hoax you were given the state, the date & the funeral home. Necrophilia is a vile, heinous crime because this was committed by a woman the photo was withheld. There is no need to violate the privacy of the corpse nor is there need to provide a photo. There are all kinds of gruesome acts of sexual perversion out here + moral deviancy which + evil. You simply don't want to believe such a thing. That doesn't prove its untrue.

    1. But the stiff had an orgasm, can you explain me how?

  2. Yea..if its no hoax..explain it and show proof this person truly exsists,otherwiswe your just desecrating some poor dead guys memory.

  3. Not to mention...you sound like an idiot agreeing to something you cannot back up.
