Neighbors describe the victim as thin, bookish man...

OK, submitter, nice headline. Can't for the life of me figure out an imposition where these pages would be on the same side of the sheet, though.

Tragic Ian Ebbs

What a great name.

What's white, black and red all over?

Harsh Subby.

I had to suppress a chuckle though.

My father is a printer and I've been in the graphic design business for 20+ - and we've both heard numerous tales of people losing arms, hands, scalps, lives, etc by not listening to the rules and standing too close, not closing safety screens, wearing long, untethered hair, loose clothing, etc...

Guess it was just this guy's turn to make a bad impression.
 
2008-10-10 09:38:42 AM  
I'd probably find that more amusing if a friend didn't just have a co-worker die in an accident involving crushing.

skinink: What's white, black and red all over?


Winner!

Still waiting for references to "The Fly" or "Terminator". . .
 
2008-10-10 09:39:32 AM  
A five page spread? Impressive.

Well, thats one way to get in the paper.

Shame on you subby for making me giggle.
 
2008-10-10 09:41:12 AM  
Was he fat? EXTRA, EXTRA, Read all about him!

Subby owes me a new keyboard.

Our distress is made worse by the thought that Ian will never again have the opportunity to play with his children, share their experiences at school, lead his daughter down the aisle when she eventually marries or know the pleasure of having grandchildren.

Classic. Printing press. lol

It's those inserts that always slow things down.

I knew a guy who only wore clip on ties because he saw a guy get pulled into a press by his tie.

My optometrist fell into his lens grinder and made a spectacle of himself.
 
2008-10-10 09:43:07 AM  
I hate when you guys make me laugh at sad stuff. Funny headline.
 
2008-10-10 09:43:42 AM  
Enjoy eternal damnation, submitter!

Maybe it was a serial crusher.

This is what happens when you don't defend our right of freedom from the press.
 
2008-10-10 09:44:21 AM  
I don't think this is what they mean when they say "bleed"

Gives a whole new meaning to "die cut"

He never saw it coming.
 
2008-10-10 09:45:32 AM  
That's terrible.
 
2008-10-10 09:45:50 AM  
I understand he wasn't the type to be careless.
 
2008-10-10 09:46:16 AM  
The headline is so much evil.... and so much LOLGASM!

I could see that would leave you feeling a little flat.
 
2008-10-10 09:46:32 AM  
I'm going to hell for laughing at this.
 
2008-10-10 09:47:19 AM  
See? Too much left-leaning in the media IS dangerous.
 
2008-10-10 09:47:36 AM  
Another good reason to get a job in online publishing instead.
 
2008-10-10 09:47:48 AM  
I understand he was well read.
 
2008-10-10 09:47:58 AM  
And they say journalism is dead...oh, wait...
 
2008-10-10 09:49:23 AM  
yep. Hell for me too

I'm not sure how common this is elsewhere, but in Israel (where I come from) in all the newspapers you can have ads publishing the death of your beloved ones, and the time of the funeral...

I guess this guy had the entire paper for himself!

Who says the modern media has no heart?
