That horrific photoshop job is what passes for journalism?

"I wish the goblins would come and take you away right now." That's not hard is it?

Gotta give props to the guy for trying to help, but going into a war zone is just asking to get killed. Same with that British journalist that died last year.

Anyone else think this looks glued on?

LOLful headline

In related news, the sixth sick Sheik's sixth sheep's sick.

Headline. #fail

This headline is super +++!
Two16 only highlights his own shortcomings with the $%^& hashtag.

lol someone died, how amusing
 
2012-08-23 9:21:53 AM  
I read that headline out loud to my girlfriend. I was doing fine until Syria. THAT word I screwed up.
 
2012-08-23 9:22:05 AM  
Sorry, but the amusing tag is way harsh. This guy was Syrian, and from the same ethnic group that are currently fighting for their freedom from a ruthless dictator. He was over there helping his own people in their hour of greatest need.

How would you feel if an American patriot died trying to bring humanitarian relief to American citizens who were fighting for their very survival, and the rest of us called it "funny"?

What is this, /b/? You're slipping, farkers...

The NSW counter-terrorism command would most likely be keeping a close eye on the situation, given its potential to further inflame simmering tensions between Sydney's Sunni and shiate communities over the Syrian conflict.


Sorry about his murder- really - family man, teacher and humanitarian. You don't need better qualifications to be a great guy.

On the other hand, there's that bit from the paper. My emphasis btw. Everyone is going to become drawn into the middle east mess sooner or later. "Cooler heads prevailed" will not be a headline anytime soon I'm afraid.

All jokes aside... rest in peace, and thank you for trying to do good work.

Social Sydney Sheik Slain, Serbia Sorry

Dude, this is Fark.
Fully 80% of all posts for that subject would be calling the American patriot a baby killer or some such.

I'm gonna go ahead and weigh in with the people who think the amusing tag is misapplied here. Not funny. Sorry.

i chuckled at the headline.

Occam's Taser: I'm gonna go ahead and weigh in with the people who think the amusing tag is misapplied here. Not funny. Sorry.


Agreed. The guy was a human relief worker trying to do good work. If he was some idiot who got killed that's one thing, this was just some guy trying to help suffering people. Not funny.
 
2012-08-23 10:41:38 AM  
Why so serious, Fark? A guy died and people made some jokes. If that's not funny, I sure don't know what is.

Ohhhhh, you're just leaving yourself wide open on that one!
 
2012-08-23 10:43:22 AM  
Protip, subby: the tag is meant to describe the story, not the headline or however you want the headline to be described.

/Amusing headline, sad story
