I don't really get the joke.
 
2012-08-20 12:30:36 AM
My headline was better

"Director of Top Gun dead from jumping off of a bridge. Ok, who was the cool kid that went first? "
 
2012-08-20 12:30:52 AM
Cruise was always the Bottom Gun.
 
2012-08-20 12:30:53 AM
Me neither but this is farked up
 
2012-08-20 12:31:04 AM
I feel the need! The need for speed! Splat.

Confabulat: I don't really get the joke.


You're not the only one.
 
2012-08-20 12:31:08 AM
And yet Michael Bay lives on. Double tragedy.
 
2012-08-20 12:31:22 AM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. He was one of the best.
 
2012-08-20 12:31:41 AM
"- jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island around 12:30pm.

His body was recovered at approximately 4:30pm ... four hours after he jumped."


Great reporting Peter Parker. I couldn't do the math myself.

This. My headline was no prize, but this one doesn't even make sense...

A man can be an artist... in anything...
 
2012-08-20 12:31:51 AM
I guess you could say that Tony Scott... (puts on sunglasses)... has lost that livin' feeling.
 
2012-08-20 12:32:30 AM
Hey man, nice jump.
 
2012-08-20 12:32:32 AM
I preferred "Goose no longer the only one from Top Gun who fell to his death" but that's because I wrote it.

Also, WTF is up with people jumping off of bridges? Just passed cops on a bridge near me last night obviously looking for someone who jumped. Just seems like a bad way to go.
 
2012-08-20 12:32:40 AM
Nooooooooooooooooooooo!

Then lets downvote the shiat out of it to tell the Admins to pick a different one

I will wait for the Director's Cut on this one.

No...no, that one pretty much sucks ass too.

Bummer of a story, though.

Prius...
 
2012-08-20 12:32:58 AM

Now THAT would have been a great headline.
 
2012-08-20 12:33:43 AM
So did he got into a flat spin as he was falling?

/Too soon.
//Window seat please.
 
2012-08-20 12:33:43 AM
Yeah, well, ya see... he once directed a movie with Tom Cruise, so that means... well, really nothing, but it's an opportunity to work Tom into a headline which is pretty much a guaranteed green.
 
2012-08-20 12:33:56 AM
Sure.. he jumped. I doubt it.

Close...that's Tony Scott's brother.

I guess you could say that bridge was a highway to... *puts on glasses* the danger zone.

The man who directed Beverly Hills Cop II is dead?



That's not true....THAT"S IMPOSSIBLE!
 
2012-08-20 12:34:17 AM
You'd think he'd off himself with a top gun.

A variation of that should be the headline

That would have been awesome on so many levels
 
2012-08-20 12:35:19 AM
Glad I'm not the only one completely lost on the headline joke.

In other news, this sucks. His work was excellent.

Never had a lick of sense anyway, pass the biscuits please

That stinks.

Also, this headline makes no sense.

It is. One you got a 50 percent chance of not dying and the impact has less of a chance of killing you then if you hit concrete. Also if the impact doesn't kill you there is a chance of hypothermia/drowing. Also the fall give you time to realize that you want to live.

just saw someone jump off the Golden Gate last week, first time I have seen anything like that

Seriously, Tony Scott was one of the best B-movie directors of the last few decades. He never made any A's, but he made a ton of B/B+'s.
 
2012-08-20 12:37:00 AM
Too bad, Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop 2, Days of Thunder, even Domino to an extent are all classics, guy always made great films.

He was probably looking for Goose's tags.

He really didn't want to tell his brother how much Prometheus sucked.
 
2012-08-20 12:37:54 AM
I think Tony Scott was going to direct Top Gun 2, which was going to "star" Cruise.
 
2012-08-20 12:38:09 AM
Also, the headline isn't funny.
 
2012-08-20 12:38:27 AM
This is the best of humanity.

This, being the participants in this thread.

Carry on.
