When he claimed that beans don't belong in chili..............:eek:.

 

Colorado man buried under mound of pinto beans dies

 

(Reuters) - A 56-year-old man was killed on Thursday when he was buried under a 20-foot mound of pinto beans at a warehouse in eastern Colorado where he worked, police said.

 

Raymond Segura Jr. was pronounced dead at the Brush, Colorado, facility of the Kelley Bean Company after efforts to reach him alive were unsuccessful, Morgan County Undersheriff Dave Martin said.

 

"We moved several tons of beans to get to him," Martin told Reuters by telephone.

 

Martin said emergency personnel were summoned to the site at 11:30 a.m. on reports of a worker trapped in a pile of loose pinto beans.

 

Martin said dozens of rescue workers and even four inmates from the county jail spent an hour digging through a 20-foot high mound of the legumes to get to the trapped worker, but he was dead when crews reached him.

 

Segura was a longtime resident of the area and had worked at the warehouse for between 12 and 15 years, Martin said.

 

The cause of the accident, how the victim became trapped and the exact cause of death are under investigation, he added.

Au contraire!  Had the beans been in chili, poor Raymond would have been able to dog paddle to the surface and swim out.



RIP.



 



Raymond walks through the pearly gates.  There is St Peter.



"Raymond, welcome.  I just had to come down and meet you.  BEANS!!!  WWOWWWW!  They say I am all knowing. Lemmee tell ya, I never EVER thought of that one.  Want a bowl of chili?  Ahhh, jus' kidding.  Seriously, how you bean?   OK OK I'll stop."

Request fulfilled.........

 

But I do have to say that, no, I do not take the fact the he died as a joke. It is certainly sad that it happened. But over the years, there have been a MULTITUDE of similar posts on this site (especially in the Tavern) with stuff like this, and no one ever said a word about it.

 

At this point, I really have to question your motives in dragging this out.

Of all the writings available to set one's moral compass to, I never considered The Town Tavern.

 

That explains it all.
