I am a little embarrassed about how funny I find this. Really, it is very sad.

Thanks, everyone. I was torn about whether I should post this or not.

I nearly deleted it when I remembered that my original plan for the day was to just post a link to dayofsilence.org, but when I came back natalie had already posted her comment and I changed my mind, because she expressed exactly the reaction I had hoped for. It was the reaction I had when I thought of it.

Black humor for a black day... if we can't laugh on the gallows, where can we laugh?

The saddest thing about it is that I hadn't even seen yesterday's headlines before I posted it.
