    That'd make it even funnier, but I have weird coping mechanisms.

    Oh well that was just too effing funny.
    And it actually got on the air ... and then into USA Today?
    That made it even worse.

    Why do we laugh at such terrible things? Because comedy is often the sarcastic realization of inescapable tragedy.

    shocking ... and people might think it's funny if there was a report on a Sanford, FL, TV station that Al Sharpton fell and cracked his head on the edge of a sidewalk ... what's happening to us, people?

    Damn. I'm laughing again. I feel so guilty. I'm going outside and spit on my grandmother's shadow.

    It is possible to hold thoughts of sympathy for a terrible tragedy and humor over a silly joke at the same time.

    That is human nature and there's nothing wrong with that sort of tension relieving laughter. If I had the slightest thought that it was cruel, I wouldn't have started the thread.

    I want to know a couple things:

    It says the intern only "confirmed" the names, not supplied them. Does that mean someone at the station got a funny spam/joke email and then seriously forwarded it to the agency for confirmation? I can understand if an intern, upon getting such ludicrous names and getting the joke, gave a "confirmation" sarcasticly.
