Why couldn't it happen to those credit score dot com singers?

So clearly the remedy for poor taste in music is doors.

Good to know.

Isn't there a St. Aaargh's in Cornwall?

Perhaps this was approved hoping that someone would associate the post with one of the Featured Partner$ (15 Cla$$ic Lines From Mi$understood $ong Lyrics (Featured Partner) )?

They will be laid in scuppers with hose pipes on them.

"The Cornish-based group's tour manager, Paul McMullen, died soon after the accident from leg injuries."

You know you live in a country with sh*t healthcare when someone dies from getting hit in the leg by a door...

As someone on a production forum mentioned, his legs were probably severely crushed and he bled out on-site.

I was thinking the same thing!!!

And yet John Mayer, Josh Groban, Coldplay and Nickelback are unscathed? Dying from a head injury I understand especially if the EMTs call it at the scene but how the hell does anyone die from a leg injury in this day and age? The NHS probably didn't want to spend the extra 10 pence on anticoagulating him postop so he died from a pulmonary embolism.

How convenient that someone's death is useful to your ideological propaganda.

He most likely severed an artery and blead to death within a couple of minutes.

Yeah, when I read he died on site from leg injuries my first guess was amputation, but either way.... that must have been a bigger door than I anticipated. Apparently the singer was trapped under it.

Also, did anyone else read the headline in the spongebob into voice/tune?

On the plus side, they can record new versions of "Danny Boy" and "You'll Never Walk Alone" for their tribute album

Loading bay doors at performance venues aren't exactly small.  They're designed so that you can drive semis and tour buses through them.

That works too. I also only saw reruns, but had the chance to purchase the entire collection on DVD for $35 and did it. Made me happy.

FA mentioned it happened in a "loading bay". so I am going to assume it was a large metal roll-up door for large trucks to pass through. I worked in the trucking industry for a few years around loading docks and those things can be really heavy. We had one that the spring-assist was broken on that required a forklift to open. We called it the "guillotine" cause what it would have done had it fell on you.
Man, what a tough way to go.

Heh, nice. I remember watching it like I watched Sat morning cartoons. I'd wake my parents up super early every Saturday morning and say " I want something to eat, something to drink, and something to watch on TV!". For some reason they let me live.

How awful would it be to be two smoking hot chicks on island full of old or fat or stupid guys?

A man's ambition must indeed be small
To write his name upon a shiathouse wall
But before I die I'll add my regal scrawl
To show the world I'm left with sweet fark all
And when all of us bold shiathouse poets do die
A monument grand they will raise to the sky
A monument made just to mark our great wit
A monument of solid shiat now me boys
