(20 June 2007, South Carolina) A passing cabbie found a 21 year-old couple
naked and injured in the road an hour before sunrise. The two people died
at the nearest hospital without regaining consciousness. Authorities were
at a loss to explain what had happened. There were no witnesses, no trace
of clothing, and no wrecked cars or motorcycles.
Investigators eventually found a clue high on the roof of a nearby
building: two sets of neatly folded clothes. Safe sex takes on a whole new
meaning when you are perched on the edge of a pyramid-shaped metal roof.
"It appears as if [they] accidentally fell off the roof," Sgt. Florence
This is a true Darwin Award trifecta: TWO people die, WHILE in the act of
procreation, due to an ASTONISHINGLY poor decision. Bottom line: If you
put yourself in a precarious "position" at the edge of a pointy roof, you
may well find yourself Falling in Love at the same time.
Ironically, one of the deceased was named "Tumbleston."
(Some reports list the name as "Tubleston.")
trifecta: a wager on the first three finishers
of a race, in the correct order.
"Damnit, I TOLD her to hold on."
"Not so safe sex."
"Talk about falling for someone.."
"Diddler on the Roof."
"Man falls for girl."
"Fooled around and fell... in love."
"There was no sign of foul play, only of foreplay."
