Not to belittle the tragedy or anything, but it's pretty rare that a person's manner of death is so custom-tailored to that person's life as that of Ryan Dunn, the Jackass star who died in what was doubtless an epic explosion when he careened off the road in his Porche last week. That much is obvious, but incredibly, we left that one out when we cataloged the ten most tasteless Ryan Dunn jokes on the Internet yesterday. So thanks to reader Greg Voakes for pointing this one out:
"Hey I'm Ryan Dunn, and this is the 130MPH Porsche Crash."
Good call, Greg. Did we leave anything else out? Feel free to chime in below.
