Don't You Just Hate When Your Joke About A Fatal Plane Crash That Took Place Less 24 Hours Ago Doesn't Go Over Well?
I think even the families and friends of the deceased would have to agree that there's no worse feeling than thinking you've got a zinger that's going to have the entire internet in stitches before watching in horror as it falls flatter than an aircraft that just plummeted from the clouds. Seriously, can't we just take it a little easy on Adam Rozenbachs? After all, he is still mourning his mentions that are undoubtedly resting in peace after he tried to get a laugh at the expense of 76 dead athletes while their bodies were still warm. He lost something too, ya know? His credibility as a "comedian" just got put in a pine box by the decidedly negative response to a joke that attempted to make light of soccer players' tendency to flop and beg for calls by comparing it to...barely surviving a kamikaze-esque plunge into a hillside from thousands of feet in the sky and screaming for help...or something like that?
Either way, how was he supposed to realise (sp?) the gravity (no pun intended) of a plane crash? Probably just thought that Chapecoense's jetliner bended it's fender on the side of a mountain or something. How could he possibly have guesstimated the damage done by an enclosed steel tube rocketing into the ground at a ridiculously high rate of speed? Excuse him for being optimistic and assuming that the unplanned grounding of a flight carrying a full international futbol club wasn't fatal enough for him to click the safety on his twitter fingers prior to doing a simple 'Google' search. Geez, kill the guy for keeping the positive vibes alive, why don't ya? He's just trying to make his followers smile through some tragic news by reminding them that - apparently - you don't need to be particularly witty, clever, or attentive to pursue a career in comedy. Thoughts and prayers to the loved ones of those that lost their lives in the crash below, but these ridiculously unfunny, disjointed analogies aren't going to tweet themselves...
