    fisherman dies chasing fishing pole

    Wow, i guess he had a heart attack. But this is the one where the fish got even. You will probably see this one on a Peta site soon.

    That's so sad. It's a shame to see an innocent man die that way... My prayers are with his family. :(

    Because it's hard to find stories online that mention that, once again, someone has successfully baked an apple pie, or that someone smiled at someone else, or that puppies are, in fact, still cuddly.

    Death, good or bad, is easier to find mentioned.

    If people would simply hit celebrities with pies more often, we would have the ideal low-brow entertainment with no lasting injuries.

    Here, Here.

    Or, tractor trailor doors open on road and spill 100,000 condoms infront of a catholic school during recess. None injured. (just an example)

    heh, that reminded me of Mrs. Doubtfire
    "'Twas the drink that killed him"
    "Aww, he was an alcoholic?"
    "No. He was hit by a Guinness truck."

    I could've sworn this was wdlove's post. ;)

    "but also lured a 46-year-old fisherman to his death"

    What an awful pun.

    "The man took off his clothes and swam after the pole ... but then suddenly stopped moving."

    He took off his clothes and swam after the fish? They didn't report it, but it would've been horrible if the fish went for his "dangly" parts.

    You are very observant of you. Good to know that I'm not alone.

    Even if we don't say it, you're definitely not alone. And yes, I am very observant of myself. I know me like the back of my hand. :p ;) :D
