Writing of headline leads to mockery of it

A routine five line news article gets greened?
Am I missing something?

I read it as cemetery truck at first and laughed.

Then I reread it and wondered why I laughed.

It's a crowd sourced headline.

Hey, modmin, can you add a quip about how the body identification is hard?

But if the truck rolled over in Australia, shouldn't it have been back right-side up? Because, you know, everything's upside down in Australia. Except for Hitler.

We should wait until we have more concrete information.

The first funny comment of the thread.

Count me among the "what is this i dont even" crowd.  Anyone?  What's the gag here?

nekom: Count me among the "what is this i dont even" crowd.  Anyone?  What's the gag here?


No gag. An admin greened an article about a terrible death. Then they realized that it wasn't funny in the slightest so they changed the headline to an awful pun (mortuary to mortarary) to make it look like it was funny after all.
 
2013-12-12 07:55:15 PM
LOL! Using puns when people that die is funny.

The headline was originally submitted as is... 'Crash of cement truck sends driver to the mortarary '
Mods may be guilty of something but it isn't pun-ishing us with an awful joke.
Don't ask me how I know that.

Once I saw an accident at the traffic light at the bottom of a pretty serious hill (right next to the Molly Brown house actually) where a cement truck totally couldn't stop and put it's front wheel in the bed of a small 2wd Toyota pickup.  Scary.

It was originally greened as 'mortuary'. They must have thought 'mortarary' was a typo.

Russ1642: Am I missing the joke?


I puzzled over that question myself for some time and my conclusion is that yes, we are missing the joke. But not much.

Must be one of those Masonic jokes. Let's just move on quietly. Mum's the word. Your Mum! ha! ha!

I would have done a joke about statuary myself, possibly about the truck driver becoming his own monument crossing the river, or being failed by Saint Christopher. With maybe an allusion to Sir Christopher "Reader, if you seek his monument, look around you" Wren.

But never mind. It's over-wrought.

That's a concrete truck.  Cement comes in a completely different truck.

Yeah, it said "mortuary" when I made the post at the beginning of the thread. It was the first dumb thing I thought of. Then I check back and the headline is changed. Might as well just delete the Boob!es.

The driver didn't have to go far to be put on the slab this time.
 
2013-12-13 04:58:11 AM
That driver never knew he would be famous on aggregate news sites.

I'm still trying to figure out how a Toyota became a cement truck. WTFark?
