    Question Stuck in "the catcher in the rye"

    You should see old Ossenburger. He probably just shoves them in a sack and dumps them in the rive. From "The Catcher in the Rye" What does "shoves them in a sack and dumps them in the river" mean? Thank-you

    Ossenburger is the owner of a funeral parlor right? (It's been a while since I read that book) He's suggesting a scam. Disposing of the bodies after services have been paid for, and reselling the coffins.
    I like poetry,long walks on the beach and poking dead things with a stick.
