Seems to be quite amusing to some on here. Sure his family and friends don’t see it that way. I am sure it will disappoint some of you if he is found “not to blame” for the accident. You need to have a word with yourselves. Bloke's not dead. We're just amusing ourselves with pins. PUNS. I mean puns.
