GW Law Professor Exhumes Sinbad's Body; Comedian Sues for Battery

GW law professor Jim Starrs, who is set to exhume Houdini's body to determine if Sir Arthur Conan Doyle of Sherlock Holmes fame had him poisoned, is being sued by comedian Sinbad for battery. Professor Starrs reportedly attempted to perform an exhumation on Sinbad.

At a press conference, Professor Starrs presented "incontrovertible" medical evidence that Sinbad was, in fact, deceased prior to the exhumation. "Just check out his profile - the last thing he did that looked like it had a pulse was that 1996 movie Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote, Jingle All The Way ... The apparently erroneous report I read on Wikipedia that he was dead was just a confirmation."

Sinbad commented on the experience of being exhumed alive, "That's some scary stuff, man, coming at me with like a knife and some chemicals and tubes up my nose. That's emotionally distressing."
