Gratuitous Musickal Posting (TM)

This is interesting: A man is claiming his family owns bits of Beethoven's skull. Initial testing apparently shows some evidence to support the claim.

Reminds me of the fellah who so worshipped Beethoven and his music that, shortly after Beethoven's death, he decided to go and find the composer's grave in order to pay homage. Once there, the fellah was so moved that he decided to dig up the body to see it with his own eyes. After much labor, he heaved the casket out of the grave and pried open the lid. Looking inside, he found Beethoven sitting there with a lamp, furiously erasing line after line of sheet music.

Beethoven looked up, scowled at the fellah and said, "Go away! Can't you see I'm decomposing?"

I'll be here all week.
