David Hume's body urban legend

I am looking for a specific piece of information for a philosophy class of mine. The professor gave us this prompt for extra credit:

“What kind of enclosure is Hume’s body rumored to be in?”

Apparently it is an urban legend of some sort, however after much searching on google I was unable to find it. Does anyone else know what he is talking about?

All I know is that it hasn’t been exhumed yet.



Anyone else know? It is not proven, but is more of a rumor / urban legend… I think he said it might have something to do with Hume’s drinking problem.

Btw, I just got your joke, awesome :smiley:

Anybody know this answer at all?
