Well, That Happened

Posted by evankessler on September 6, 2010

I’m not one to make light of tragic events (most of the time), but every once in awhile a headline so bizarre catches your eye that you can’t help just let out an airy chuckle of disbelieving astonishment. Scanning through news headlines prior to drifting off to dreamland this evening I happened on such a combination of words plastered across the top of an online article. You will find said headline below:

If this actual occurrence is not a testament to the unpredictable nature of everyday life, then I’m not sure what is. Every element of the story seems like it was chosen haphazardly out of a hat; From the instrument the guy played, to the band he was in, to the thing that killed him. If god does exist he/she was playing  mad libs of fate or fiddling around with his/her random situation generator  and this poor fellow was on the losing end. If anything, it’s further motivation to live life to the fullest, because you never know when a bale of hay is going to careen out of control and crash into your van…I guess; though I’m pretty sure you have control of becoming the Cellist for ELO.
