I was only being facetious earlier about Kofi Annan’s funeral plan, we don’t need to see the body. But I understand the queries; we've always done open caskets. Why didn’t the government tell the public ahead of the time that we were going to get a closed casket?

I have this theory that Kofi Annan‘s corpse has been cremated and spread somewhere in Switzerland and they have brought us an empty casket
