The following is not, of course, how BuzzFeed put this item in their headlines. But for the record, in the wake of Sandy Hook, I cannot believe that both BuzzFeed and the NY Post (which is famous for its, ah, provocative headlines, and where I first saw this item) passed up the chance for the Ultimate Redneck Headline™:
Man In Pickup Truck Freedoms Self To Death In The Head At NRA-Sponsored NASCAR Race.
Because it’s quite clear from the details of the piece that this is exactly
what occurred. Just sayin’.
