WHY DO WE NEVER SPEAK ILL OF THE DEAD?
Spectators who witnessed the human cannonball tragedy that left a young man dead asked for their money back after the rest of the show was cancelled, it has emerged. Matt Cranch, 24, who had been a stuntman for only a week, hit the ground head first as the net meant to break his fall collapsed. They revealed that some demanded a refund of their £12 admission fee when the rest of the show at the Kent County showground, near Maidstone, was cancelled.
As friends paid tribute to the young stuntman, some of those who watched the tragedy unfold told of their disgust at the behaviour of others in the audience.
I think two things are important here. To start with, who were the arseholes who wanted their money back? Why were they not charged an extra tenner because some,( FAT ), bastard, firstly managed to squeeze into a cannon and secondly managed to kill himself? Is that not worth a wee bit extra? I don't know the chappie and he was probably a great guy.
But the main point is, why do we never speak ill of the dead? They're always happy, smiling kids or really nice adults who do a lot of charity work. I would hope that when I go, if it is reported at all, then it will be to say that I was a CRABBIT ARSEHOLE!
