I wonder if the submitter made fun of the 24 dead American miners a few weeks ago. Or if it's just dead Russians that get the laugh...

Everyone burns coal. No matter what country you are from. No matter what your politics. You don't see a bunch of PWT douchebags running around with coal miner gear on like they do with the FDNY crap, though.

Probably; this is Fark. We'd find a way to laugh at anything.

Doesn't mean we're incapable of condolences; think of the accompanying insanity as a side dish of sorts.

FTA: The death toll has climbed to 43. Forty-seven people are still missing," a spokesman for the local emergencies ministry told RIA Novosti.

Why do I get the feeling this is another case where "missing" is just another way of saying "they're dead but we haven't found their bodies yet"?

Nah, this is straight out of the Russian playbook: They can't beat us with technology, so they use human wave tactics.

OK, it's not a very funny subject, but was there any humorous merit to the headline besides the fact that there is a reversed 'N'? Which in itself is quite unamusing.

Still, I think that pic is overused these days.

I guess we are back in the cold war. And they couldn't let a dead miner gap between the East and West form.

I'll settle down when it's a funny/ironic/etc. post. A cold blooded "stupid" post, I do not find funny. But feel free to call me Francis. For some twisted reason, I actually like that name.

Subby, and the idiot I called out? Not so much. Too many good people die for their work. If it was something they chose to do, so be it. Generally, I believe they were just trying to feed their family. No funny death there.

I don't know precisely what Fark did with my comment, but I like it better that way.

Has anybody pointed out yet that Subby fails at the Cyrillic alphabet?

/oh yeah, and it's also not funny that people died.

Well, it would be funny if one guy slipped on a banana peel and fell on a detonator, and the whole mine blew up.

You ought to consider removing that stick from your posterior, unless you've never laughed at any of the multiple fark headlines and/or comments that make light of a serious situation... in which case go ahead and cast the first stone.

Only would be funny if it the mine had been filled with the corporate leaders for that company (maybe during tour?).

The type of people that do mine work, only do it as there is no other work were they live. Therefore, if they die there, it is not funny. Typically, it's due to the failure of the leadership to meet safety standards. After all, who cares about the little people?

I assume you can see the irony. As long as it's only the peons that die.... who cares?

You know the old axiom, hate the sin and love the sinner? Well, on Fark it's hate the event but love the headline. We come here for funny headlines even in the face of great tragedy: It's not news, it's Gallows humor.®

Something hit too much home for you? Don't go into the comments section. And I do not offer that advice in mockery.

/Shamefully, I did chuckle at the headline. It was cute.
