How the fark do you get run over with a steamroller?
Why the fark didn't the asshat running the thing turn it off?
How the fark did they get the body to the morgue?

Aussies in a hurry for their garden mulch.

Guess that crushed her plans for the rest of the day.
2003-02-17 11:15:58 PM  

This guy knows how she feels.

Dammit, beaten to the Who Framed Roger Rabbit joke.

I bet she gets made fun of for being flat-chested, though.

*austin powers joke*

That sucks.
2003-02-18 12:49:16 AM  
I can't immagine those things move very fast... surely she could have gotten out of the way...

Looking at the other comments on this thread I think I'm going to end up in Hell by association...

I'm sure we'd know what happened if the article was more than three sentences long.
2003-02-18 12:49:53 AM  
Nice article. All of five sentences, maybe?
2003-02-18 12:50:02 AM  
Don't these things only move like 1 mi/hr?

guess they need to make up some of those signs

Instead of "Slow children at play"

"Slow Workers ahead"

I have a few of those Slow children at play signs in my neighborhood. I have yet to see a slow child here play.

I can't imagine that directing traffic is such fascinating work that you wouldn't notice that HUGE MACHINE bearing down on you. yeesh
2003-02-18 12:52:57 AM  
At least they don't have to spend all that money on a coffin. They can just slide her into a big FedEx envelope.

Death by Steamroller. Man, what a terrible way to go.
2003-02-18 12:54:50 AM  
Worked on a road crew as a summer job in high school (Yup, the moron with the STOP/SLOW sign). Rollers (none of them are steam powered anymore) don't have brakes...
2003-02-18 12:56:15 AM  
I must say, I have trouble understanding how someone manages to be accidentally crushed by a large, noisy, slow-moving object.

"It's K-K-K-Ken, c-c-c-coming to k-k-k-kill me! How are you going to c-c-c-catch me, K-K-K-Ken?"

I must say, I have trouble understanding how someone operating the machine was so damn careless... what a horrible way to go....
2003-02-18 12:58:43 AM  
Probably the worst way I can think of to die. Her family should sue.
2003-02-18 12:58:53 AM  
Just so you know, I am SO going to hell.

I actually laughed out loud at that headline.

Then again, I am intoxicated....

Getting Run Over by a steam roller because you have the reflexes of that old lady from the 'help i've fallen and I Can't Get up' commercial: not a very classy funeral. Also pricless.
2003-02-18 12:59:40 AM  
a whole 5 liner dedicated to a woman who is very dead, with little explaination. i hate the press, oh wait, and asshats who run people over with friggen steamrollers!

Well do they have an ON/OFF switch????? Gee whiz. The operator must have been asleep.
2003-02-18 01:02:28 AM  
She was pronounced dead. Think they tried to find a pulse?
2003-02-18 01:03:07 AM  
-I'm going to hell for this one.-

When they got to the morgue the door was locked. So they slid her under the door.

2003-02-18 01:03:52 AM terrorist attack, a whole bunch of steamrollers running amok over the countryside.
Naah...probably not...
2003-02-18 01:04:23 AM  
They've got forward/reverse/neutral gearshifts. You're right - the guy driving must've been asleep (or massively stoned - very likely, in my experience).
2003-02-18 01:05:06 AM  
Hmmm... until iknow the circumstances i dont feel comfortable calling her a dumbass. She might have fallen over and been knocked out or something. I guess there is no way to know that.

We had a Roger Rabbit reference before an Austin Powers reference? Props to you guys. Good memory.

I'll up the ante with a recent but maybe obscure Malcom in the Middle reference (do farkers ever watch this show?). I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't mind renting a steamroller to run shiat over with for a while.
2003-02-18 01:07:13 AM  
Wow. That headline is both funny and insensitive at the same time.
2003-02-18 01:07:41 AM  
that story really sucks ass, no detail. i'm suprised they mentioned it was a woman
2003-02-18 01:08:02 AM  
Photoshop - rice out this funky roller...

I wonder how big the obligatory chalk outline they drew in the road was.
2003-02-18 01:08:49 AM  
Christ, and I thought that criminal dog article was long....

Making fun of someone run over by a piece of heavy machinery is one of the reasons I don't like people, not that I would run over them. Unless I saw my husband leaving a hotel with another woman while driving my Mercedes, if I was a woman which in fact I am not, I would not run over my husband, if I were in fact driving a Mercedes which goes much faster than a large "steam" roller. By the way, Bush sucks, but I digress.

Not a glamourous way to die...
2003-02-18 01:11:20 AM  
confirm dead? wtf was there to confirm LOL
2003-02-18 01:11:49 AM  
You wanna roll back and start that one again? I got lost after "fun"...

ElwoodCuse I got the ref (actually briefly did a GIS for a screenshot). That show is possibly the only network show, other than the Simpsons and SNL I watch.
