Is this Tragic? Or Funny? Or Both?

One of my FB friends posted the story of the death of former ELO cellist Mike Edwards, killed in Devon by a rogue bale of hay.

The cylindrical bale had rolled down a hill before hurtling over a 15ft hedge. It is believed a tractor had been at work.

Mike, 62, was travelling alone on the A381 near Kingsbridge, South Devon.

After being struck, his white Transit hit a smaller van but that driver escaped unhurt.

What a bemusing way to go.

Rest in peace.

It's so Spinal Tap. As in "He died in a bizarre gardening accident."

I see a Very Special Episode of VHI's Behind The Band.

Ask not for whom the bale rolls; it rolls for thee.
