Using One's Head

This story gives new meaning to the phrase "use your head." A 54-year-old British businessman reacted to his 34-year-old wife leaving him by tying a rope he kept in his Aston Martin car to a tree before wrapping the other end around his neck and driving his car at a high rate of speed into a busy street. The coroner who examined the decapitated man's body said, "I'm satisfied this was a deliberate attempt by Mr. Mellin to kill himself."

Makes me wonder what the Marion County Coroner would say.

I know what Bones Ackles would say "I wonder if I can drive off with this Aston Martin without anyone noticing? It just needs a little detailing."

procynic.. I'm sure the MCC would ask for more details about the "death investigation" and try to call it a homicide.
After all, the untold numbers of people driving with a rope around their neck would alarm you.

(that was sarcasm)
