First we lose Steve Irwin to a stingray, now little Richard Hammond has been critically injured while attempting to break the British land speed record in a jet powered car, which I’m sure he was eminently qualified to do being a former Tornado pilot like Wing Commander Andy Green, the current holder of that title. What scares me though is that these young girls started digging a hole for Mr. Hammond two days ago.
Is there an international conspiracy to rid the world of death-defying C-list celebrities? And if there is, where do I sign up?
UPDATE: Some American fans of the Hammond have also predicted his demise and have lovingly crafted this beautiful casket. Their love and devotion has brought a tear to my eye.
