Man fakes his mother's obituary to get out of work

Faking a note from your mom to get out of school is stupid; telling people your mom is dead and then publishing a fake obituary in the local paper raises stupid to a whole new level:
Authorities in northwestern Pennsylvania say a man published an obituary for his living mother in a ploy to get paid bereavement time off from work.

Relatives called The Jeffersonian Democrat newspaper in Brookville after the obit appeared to report the woman was actually alive and well. The woman herself then visited the paper.

Brookville police charged Scott Bennett, 45, with disorderly conduct on Tuesday.
There's no word yet on whether or not Bennett is still employed, but I'm actually more interested in knowing whether or not he's invited to mom's for Christmas.
