No, it's not.

Robin Williams. In the Bedroom. With a Belt.
2014-08-12 02:59:49 PM  
Why that way? Why that day?
2014-08-12 03:00:24 PM  
There's a suspenders joke in here somewhere but you know what...fark it.  It's not worth it.
2014-08-12 03:00:36 PM  
I guess there is something that Robin WIlliams couldn't make funny after all.

/has a sad.
2014-08-12 03:00:38 PM  
I didn't really want to know that.
2014-08-12 03:00:51 PM  
The important thing is that we have the grizzly details.
2014-08-12 03:00:53 PM
2014-08-12 03:00:54 PM  
That was surprisingly detailed...

I say it's important to keep perspective and remember the man for the life he lived, not the death itself.
2014-08-12 03:01:09 PM  
Here come the More and Windy reruns.
2014-08-12 03:01:09 PM  
2014-08-12 03:01:13 PM  
That certainly took it up a notch...

Would it have been funny with his Mork suspenders?

Williams "was in a seated position slightly suspended off the ground," Boyd said. "What that means is that his body looked like he was sitting in a chair."

Could have been worse......
2014-08-12 03:02:12 PM  
Norm MacDonald has a hilarious joke about suicides by hanging.

It involves David Carradine.

But I'll just keep it to myself for now.
2014-08-12 03:02:16 PM  
Always so full of energy, and naturally funny, but he suffered from some very powerful demons. Sad. Rest in peace, Mork.
2014-08-12 03:02:45 PM  
I'm getting the impression that a popular comedian died.

Seriously. It took a zillion Robin Williams headlines before I got that.
2014-08-12 03:02:55 PM  
Yeesh, sounds like he tried to cut his wrists first.
2014-08-12 03:02:58 PM  
Ugh, the D'Angelo special. Someone bring in Stringer for questioning.

Preliminary Results: Williams Hung Himself

Dammitall, you meant HANGED.
2014-08-12 03:03:12 PM  
"To die would be a great adventure..."
2014-08-12 03:03:19 PM  
Just like that guy from INXS?
2014-08-12 03:03:40 PM  
Takes my breath away.

/too soon?
2014-08-12 03:03:53 PM  
2014-08-12 03:03:58 PM  
It's only funny if he was masturbating.
2014-08-12 03:03:58 PM  
I wonder if they had canceled his show earlier in the year that he might have been able to make the talk show circuit, have a laugh and put it behind him. Not being able to get on the air with Dave, Craig, Cobalt, etc, might have been preventing him from healing.

I also wonder if the Mork and Mindy reunion didn't kill him.

FlashHarry: [ image 850x1209]

I was looking for a screencap from that so I could make a hilarious, "Like son. like father" comment.
2014-08-12 03:04:29 PM  
Why did I read that "World's Greatest Dead"?
2014-08-12 03:04:37 PM  
I'm all choked up...?

/too soon?
2014-08-12 03:04:46 PM  
So not a championship belt?
2014-08-12 03:04:52 PM  
He was just enhancing the auto-erotic orgasm.  Ala Carradine.

Auto-erotica is NOT sex in a car ...

Was that Robin?  I disremember.

Just like David Carradine...

So was this his last comedic statement?
2014-08-12 03:05:04 PM  
I've known so many people who end it this way. It's a slow, agonizing death compared to a professional gallows-type operation. There are so many better ways to do it, not that the whole process is exactly rational to begin with.
2014-08-12 03:05:17 PM  
I watched season 2 of the Wire. Avon put the hit out.
2014-08-12 03:05:22 PM  
What makes me sadder is the fact that, so many kids waste their life trying to be a celebrity, yet, the life of a celebrity is not that much envious, as apparent from so many celebrity suicides, over-dosing and bankruptcy fillings.

I guess, if we could treat celebrities more like humans, many problem on both ends would be solved.

Anyway, RIP, funny man.

Dammitall, you meant HANGED.

I let go when the legal profession insisted on pleaded instead of pled. The old words are going.
2014-08-12 03:05:36 PM  
I've known three people who killed themselves and they were all way above average on the making-other-people-happy scale.

I've also had experience with depression and depressed family.

No I don't have a point
2014-08-12 03:05:55 PM  
Coroner's verdict was a cinch.
2014-08-12 03:05:57 PM  
Things i didn't need to know...hooray today.
2014-08-12 03:05:58 PM  
Watching Hook right now.

The sads are many.
2014-08-12 03:06:04 PM  

macross87: Just like David Carradine...

Uh, no.
2014-08-12 03:06:11 PM  
Ok, Matt Damon the wrench is all yours. Because fark the coroner, that's why.

/ one seat please
2014-08-12 03:06:14 PM  
Which  makes me wonder. It's going to be ruled a suicide by hanging. Why must the general public be told whether or not he had alcohol or drugs in his system. It's none of our business. Embarrass him and his family posthumously? It just doesn't matter now.
2014-08-12 03:06:27 PM  
Thank you, sheriff-coroner, for letting me know he was fully clothed. So that my poor mind could be forced to imagine what he would have looked like totally naked under the same circumstances.
2014-08-12 03:06:53 PM  

gja: I'm all choked up...?

/too soon?

"They said you was hung!"
