An autopsy was planned for 8 a.m. Wednesday to determine the cause and manner of death, he said.

Now, I may be jumping the gun here, but I think I might have an idea...

Awesome, certainly, but obscure?

You'd think they have more than a shred of evidence.

Tucker and Dale vs Evil is AMAZING.
If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it.

CSB: I'm still horrified when I think about this woodchipper accident near me about 15 years ago. The poor guy got his leg caught in the chipper and got pulled all the way through it. Guess he couldn't hit the emergency shutoff in time. Holy cripes imagine all that's left of you is a puddle of blood and some random pieces of bone and guts.

Have a great day! :)

I have seen Tucker but not Fargo (movie or series). I plan to see it one day but I have a bit fear of being disappointed.

they'll just need to pool the evidence and then sift through it until they find something.

Fargo is great. Bill Macy, Frances, McDormand, Buscemi. All play great roles.

FINE!

Now I need to re-watch Tucker & Dale.

A 17-year-old boy from Coplay died after an incident involving a wood chipper on Tuesday afternoon in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania State Police confirm.

One of those conventions would be a dangerous place for a wood chipper. With all the elaborate costumes and capes and what not it's just an accident waiting to happen. I'm not even sure what character would need a wood chipper. The Punisher maybe?

Wait, let me reread that...

Oh sorry, it's early. Now we just need the rest of the band to suffer a similar fate.

/sorry, I couldn't decide which joke to go with.

If so I weep for America. I see the movie as a poignant and subtle lesson how ones preconceived notions about a persons appearance can easily mislead people into false a narrative and destroy meaningful human relationships before they've had a chance to start. We would all be better off by watching this movie and let it take our hand to lead us to a better place where we can love our fellow man no matter what they look like on the outside.

Joking aside, the really important question here is:
How much teen would a woodchipper chip if a woodchipper could chip teen?

I'm not going to say that subtext isn't there, but it's just a role reversal story. I don't know that they set out with the compassion and understanding thing. Specifically given the end villian.

My penis went through a wood chipper once. The wood chipper started smoking and stopped working. I had to donate it to a scrap yard later. I was OK.

Not so much burying as digging a hole and pouring him in.

Had a relative long ago that was killed by falling on a buzz saw. Horrible way to go, but at least there was most of the body for a funeral even if it was in two pieces.

Agreed, but as art is subjective I'm not sold that they realized what they were creating when they made the movie. I think they were going for a specific teen horror genre while throwing a comedy element into the story. What they stumbled upon was a statement on society as a whole and why superficiality has run rampant while character building has taken a back seat as the former is a more reliable and expedient way to success and acceptance.

They want to know if drugs were involved, but since it was a minor with (possibly) no prior record, they don't want to risk a libel allegation, paper nor coroner.

Hi, come here often?


Every day, and I am well aware of what this site is all about. The Debbie Downer reference out front shoulda told ya.

I will say, that upon first reading subby's headline, my initial thought was "Ummm, subby....was 'what a horrible tragedy, my heart goes out to the family' not an option?" But after thinking about it for a few seconds, I understood that laughter is way to deal with tragedy. As Tommy Lee Jones's character in No Country For Old Men said, 'I laugh myself. Sometimes it's all you can do" and then thought about a scenario where movers are hoisting up furniture to the third floor of an apartment building. They just happen to be lifting up a piano when the rope snaps and the piano lands on top of some poor pedestrian who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It is a horrible situation, no doubt about that. But....there are going to be Roger Rabbit jokes, no doubt about that. Hell, they will likley be telling them at the guy's funeral.

You donated your penis to a scrap yard? Did they find it on a blanket? Was a guy selling it with some broken toasters and other stuff?
