Friend Who Just Got Motorcycle Already Dead

635?5887

Quote:
BRIDGEPORT, CT—Moments after purchasing a new Kawasaki Ninja 250R, your friend Pete has already been killed, bystanders outside the motorcycle dealership have just confirmed. "Boy, that didn't last long," said bike salesman Chris Varrick, adding that “no more than 10 seconds” after becoming a bike owner, Pete lost control of his motorcycle, collided with an 18-wheeler, was flung approximately 30 yards, and died upon impact with the pavement. "He handed over the check, thanked me, and took off down Jackson Road. And then he died." At press time, Pete's younger brother, who inherited the bike, has also already died

I like it when a news agency from a foreign county picks up a story from the Onion and reports it as a real story.

Not that I know of. I think it's been a year or so since I've heard of it last happening.

where's the humor?

I was wondering the same.
