The forklift operator, I heard was a young driver.  Just out on his second job.

and / or
I heard working at a cheese factory was a brie.

Now we wait a week for Daily Fail to claim that he was a war hero who died valiantly trying to save a bikini bimbo (see picture right) from the Taliban.  Oh wait, he was Irish?  Never mind, was probably drunk on the job, right guv?

What, like how many reverse hogsheads to a land fathom it is, or whatever system Americans are still using?

/What is it in shillings and ha'pennies?

An irishman on a forklift, killed by cheese...

Not quite 5 months ago and it is news now why?

There's been enough time for followup.

Did the company's insurance pay his family a lump sum or does
a workplace injury/death pay off monthly from the government?
 
2017-04-20 11:23:39 AM  
Oh.
It's news now because the court concluded 30 days ago it was accidental death.

What is happening to this world????? First 20,000 lb of cheese burns up in Wisconsin, now 80,000 lb of cheese kills a man.

No Cheeses of Nazareth?

I am disappoint.

One of the few times cutting the cheese would have saved a man's life.

What happens to the cheese now? Do you clean off the splatter and sell it? Do you advertise it as a killer cheese? Do you take the cheese around the body, melt it around him in a solid block, and use it as burial cheese?

He died doing what he loved.

Getting crushed by cheese.

The forklift operator should have driven more Caerphilly, now the poor man is doing the Muenster mash.

Robert Cermuga, 32, was working at a storage warehouse in Dublin when a wall of shelving supporting pallets of cheese collapsed and killed him on 28 November 2016.

I'm picturing the scene from one of the Harry Potter movies where they're retrieving the prophesy and the ensuing battle and chaos as all of the globes are falling, except replace the falling globes with globs of cheese...

I don't trust those damn neutrals.

If they are so damned neutral, why do they have so many Chocolate Cream Soldiers?

It was just after dark when the truck started down the hill that leads into Scranton Pennsylvania, carrying thirty thousand pounds of bananas.
