Granny Smith
 n.— «When funeral director Roger Barker missed his appointment at a crematorium to collect a client’s remains, he dipped into an urn of “spare ashes” kept in the funeral parlour for just such emergencies. But the practice—known in the trade as doing a Granny Smith—did not go undetected, Oxford crown court heard yesterday.» —“Urn racket revealed” by Mark Honigsbaum Guardian (U.K.) Mar. 5, 2005.
