Always Look on the Bright Side of Death

I haven't heard of a single reported drug overdose at Bonnaroo this past weekend, which is probably the first year in five the festival posted a clean sheet in that regard.

Two people died in auto-related accidents, however, one falling off the back of a pick-up truck and another hit by Ricky Skaggs' tour bus. Yes, a 21-year-old festival-goer jumped in front of the bluegrass musician's bus on I-24 and unfortunately died (although if this act was a suicide, it might not be that unfortunate).

It's a sad story, always difficult when dealing with the deaths of young people, but at least this awful scenario gave birth to this ridiculous quote that somehow made it into the AP story:

Carrie Anne, a 25-year-old Skaggs fan from Portland, Maine, said she was disappointed to hear of the death, but felt "there are worse ways to go than to be hit by Ricky Skaggs' tour bus."

Worse ways? Like being hit by Dave Matthews' tour bus? At least that'd be the first time DMB managed to floor anyone.

Slack Video of the Day: The Lovely Rachel sent this over to me, a clip of a drunk girl spouting off about her boss at an office party with damning results. Clever girl.

Slack Song of the Day: We're off to see Trey and Tom Petty tonight at the World's Most Famous Arena, so here's a little Big Red to start the day: Drifting, Push on 'Til the Day and Mozambique.

The reason getting hit by the Dave Matthews tour bus would be worse is that after they run you over, they dump their piss on you.
