This is not the first time that Mark Lowton has been declared dead, only to reappear miraculously as somebody actually noticed his existence.
"Tis a shame," said the local funeral parlor, "Many's the time we've measured the lad for a coffin, 'ave the perfect one selected for his carcous. Bloody 'ell 'e's got more lives than stinkin' dead cat has."
