At least he's only singing among the victims who are OK.

It could be worse... he could be walking into the midst of the injured or those who had lost people and singing Metallica's "Blackened" or something like that.
 
2013-05-23 08:53:41 AM  
So he's OK? right?

Who's peekin' out from under a stairway
Calling a name that's lighter than air
Who's bending down to give me a rainbow
Everyone knows it's Windy

Who's tripping down the streets of the city
Smilin' at everybody she sees
Who's reachin' out to capture a moment
Everyone knows it's Windy

And Windy has stor-my eyes
That flash at the  sound of lies
And Windy has wings to fly
Above the  clouds (above the clouds)
Above the clouds (above the clouds)

Children die every day, many in more violent or depressing ways than a tornado.

Should we all spend a portion of each day sobbing in the corner?

No; young Mr. Davis was killed. As such, his continual singing to the OK victims of the tornado is unsettling and in defiance of any current knowledge of biology.

So... if one of your kids dies in a horrible tragedy and a headline writer uses poor sentence structure in a story about it, can you let us know so that we can have a good laugh about it?

DRTFA but I get the gist that the kid is singing to provide comfort to people who have suffered terrible losses.  Good for her.
 
2013-05-23 11:21:56 AM  
And it's not just the headline that's 'hilarious', the 'lucky' children, such as the boy described in the article, were crushed to death immediately. The girl(who was the one who loved to sing), suffocated to a slow death under tons of rubble. Hilarious! It took 2 days for rescuers to find her body, during which her parents had no idea whether she was dead or alive. I'm sure her grief stricken parents took some comfort, while they were waiting, in reading snarky Fark headlines about poor headline grammar.

Oh also, the girl's family's house was completely destroyed, but I guess that doesn't matter, because she won't be needing it anymore! Amidoinitrite?

Hilarious!

Oh wow, you got me AGAIN. I really stepped in that one, huh! When will I learn???

I wish that I could come up with a suitable retort, but frankly, I don't have the intellectual capacity, and it's not like they give those photobucket accounts out to everyone!

But hey, I really do have a sense of humor. For example, I also find it 'hilarious' that subby's screen name is "Mominator". Because what Mom hasn't wanted to have her terrified children crushed or smothered underneath tons of debris at some point and then have a laugh about grammar afterwards, amirite?

In fact, I think I would be a great idea for Subby to drive to Oklahoma City and comfort the survivors. I bet JaNae's father would really appreciate Mominator's unique perspective, because truthfully, he probably really does need a laugh right about now. "Hey Joshua, I'm sorry about your loss, but did you read this HILARIOUS "Faux News"(get it?) headline about it--they left out some commas, so they made it sound as if she was crazy(and still alive!)!

I'm sure that will cheer him up right away!! And after he got done laughing, you could go back to the ruins of his house with him and maybe find a few mementos of his daughter before they hauled the debris off to the dump...

Oh also, Subby, not that "Faux News" needs any white knights, but that was an AP story, with the exact original AP headline.

Whatever makes you feel better, I suppose. Just try not to think about any of those nine that are now gone being your child. I really shouldn't have to say this - especially to a Mother - but, there's nothing funny about this at all.

Yes, there quite obviously is, or so many people wouldn't be laughing at it... Just because you lack a sense of humor, don't go around insulting those with one... The humor lies not in the death of children, but in the headline's grammar failure... Finding it funny doesn't make you an evil person who finds kids getting crushed to death funny; it makes you someone who can laugh at the absurdity of the situation implied by the headline's grammar... Do you remember the Fark thread based on this headline?

Nope. Don't recall that thread at all and I've got a helluva sense of humor. However, this is nowhere even close to being in the ballpark. I get the grammar fail. Very poor choice of words, but far from funny at this point, IMHO. Some of us have friends & family in the affected area, children of our own and this tragedy hits way too close to home.

Tell ya what, Rob. Since you're apparently Fark's equivalent of Richard Pryor, you go have kids of your own and pour your heart & soul into them and sacrifice for them day-in, day out. THEN ALSO at some point in your life, look the beast that is a tornado, regardless of its magnitude, directly in the eye. I mean, find yourself directly in the path of one bearing down on you and your children, as opposed to experiencing it from the friendly confines of a Youtube video. If and when you make it through the whole ordeal get back to me and tell me how funny a poorly written headline about it is when everything in your life is gone in seconds, because that's how long it takes. Seconds, Hombre. Seconds.

All I'm talking about is a little perspective here & a modicum of respect.

[sarcasm]
I've had the  extreme joy of experiencing three of them in my 40+ years, Rob & every one of them  truly was a pants sh*ttingly, hilariously great time.

Then, may I ask why you came into the thread with the headline that you may have took issue with?
