Yo dawg, I heard you like funerals.

I said, "Doctor! Is there nothing I can take?"
I said, "Doctor! To relieve this bellyache?"

I always think it's weird when someone dies on the way to a funeral.

Context headline of the year?

That's what's called "irony." It's a literary device.

He was dying to go to the funeral.

Baloo Uriza: Context headline of the year?


I think a similar story with the same headline won last year.

As one who has been hit by a large falling oak tree, I'm not getting a kick (but I did get a good thwack).

Heartless bastards in this thread.

Fun facts: Palm trees are a family of plants. This family is called Arecaceae. Palm trees are not true trees. They grow in hot climates.

One think I particularly like about the article was how rich in details it was.

Yeah, seriously, you obviously don't read enough Fark. What's wrong with you? Do you actually work a full day?

Will the death toll rise to tree?

Had the victim been consuming alcohol? Was he trunk?
 
2014-05-18 09:21:23 PM  
I feel terrible for doing so, but I did LOL. Well played subby.
 
2014-05-18 09:28:44 PM  
Nice subby.  Reminded me of the fark headline "Fin" about a dolphin that had collided with another dolphin swimming in a tank and died of head injuries.  I couldn't find it, my googles are weak.

Yet another of the countless reasons why New York is a better city than Los Assholes: no murderous tropical flora.

Only would have been more ironic if it happened the Sunday before Easter.

Or while on a date.

"Witnesses told the station they tried to pull Calderon, but the tree crown was too heavy."

They should have tried to pull Calder off

You win, I bow to your wow.

They didn't say which type. I'm guessing it was one of those desert fan palms that's skinny as a telephone pole, but twice as tall. Up until now, I'd have guessed they usually fall from the base, but now I suppose the shearing stress from the fronds blowing in the wind could eventually wear out the top.
 
2014-05-18 11:06:03 PM  
If only there had been a good tree with a crown....
 
2014-05-18 11:09:52 PM  
On the plus side, it wasn't a Cactus, that prick would have really hurt.

Alanis Morissette wrote a song about this.

FTA: An East Los Angeles man was killed when the top of a palm tree fell on top of him.

At least he doesn't have to go to the funer....never mind.

the fates are not pleased with this family

Habeas Porpoise: "Witnesses told the station they tried to pull Calderon, but the tree crown was too heavy."

They should have tried to pull Calder off


They tried to pull his leg. Then they tried to pull a fast one and pull the wool over his eyes. Finally, they tried calling Bill Pullman.

Bet he was already trunk. On Crown.

No she didn`t. She shat on a disc whilst examining her own farts and passed it round...

violentsalvation: How original.


If subby had put "(redux)" in the headline I'd give points.

NO POINTS!
