Sounds like his family might have grounds for a lawsuit.

Autopsy results this afternoon said Karr died from multiple crushing injuries from a commercial-grade coffee maker falling on his chest

So the coffee maker fell on him multiple times? And no one has footage of this? We didn't win a war so that every civilized American can have their own camera phone yet a guy getting crushed multiple times by a coffee maker goes un -recorded.

At least he died as a well-grounded man.
 
2014-05-25 11:23:34 PM
For crying out loud.. won't someone ban these things and stop these senseless deaths!!!!!

Just let me squeeze in there by ya and get $0.85 worth before ya unplug it, if you don't mind too terribly much... won't be but a minute.

Jim never died when I made him coffee at home.....

Though his friends hated him for being a bean counter.
 
2014-05-25 11:26:53 PM
He was dead before it hit the ground.
 
2014-05-25 11:29:08 PM
Friends describe him as perky.
 
2014-05-25 11:29:45 PM
It's a good thing that machine didn't explode and send shrapnel into his corpse. Then his loved ones would have to choose between capitated and decapitated.

Stand your grounds?

sounds like he was....
/sunglasses
French pressed to death

YAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

I am just stunned. I am going to have to brew on how this could have happened in this day and age.

Autopsy results this afternoon said Karr died from multiple crushing injuries from a commercial-grade coffee maker falling on his chest. His death was ruled an accident

That's what big coffee wants you to believe.

Is it because the headline is stupid since that line is from instant coffee and had no need for a coffee machine?
 
2014-05-25 11:36:42 PM
There will be a closed casket service because apparently he was decaffeinated.

He was supposed to be making a latte, not a splatte,

And that's where you would be wrong. It was for all Maxwell House, regular and instant coffee.

When he saw the slick floor, he should have known trouble was brewing.
 
2014-05-25 11:47:16 PM
died trying to make coffee? that doesn't seem like a fair trade.
 
2014-05-25 11:50:59 PM
We replaced the regular brand of coffee with Folger's hearty brew.  Will the customers notice the difference?  Oh. My. God.  The coffee machine is way too full of Folger's hearty brew and it's tipping over!

Damned right they'll notice!

We should all be roasted.

Shhh, we've secretly replaced his normal commercial coffee maker with a commercial coffee maker from the movie Trucks.  Lets see what happens.
 
2014-05-26 12:31:29 AM
He was strong and black, but now he's bean creamed.
 
2014-05-26 12:33:35 AM
Were his last words "Gimme some sugar"?

Bith Set Me Up: Were his last words "Gimme some sugar"?


And how many lumps did he get?
 
2014-05-26 12:35:46 AM
And to think his biggest complaint about the machine was the little cup not dropping before the coffee being dispensed.
 
2014-05-26 12:38:38 AM
And I say to myself...I need exact change...
 
2014-05-26 12:39:16 AM
Not the first time a coffee machine has led to a fatality.

Boo. Yuban for that.

According the postum mortem report, the medical examiner, Chase N. Sanborn, estimated his time of death as Eight O'Clock. On news of the tragedy, price per share of the company which manufactured the deadly device sanka sharply.
