There is a practice in rural Taiwan where, to send a family's dear (male) departed out with a bang with...funeral strippers. We're not kidding. The strippers show up in strip-clubs-on-wheels the Taiwanese call "Electric Flower Cars" and do dances hot enough to raise the dead, giving new meaning to "pushing up daisies". As hard as it is to put those two words together, the Taiwanese don't see anything wrong with it. Here's a teaser for the documentary, "Dancing for the Dead: Funeral Strippers in Taiwan" from filmmaker Marc L. Moskowitz, available at
