We got an unfortunately-worded press release at work today. The story itself is sad, but the first sentence on the release is written in a way that should at least make those with a healthy appreciation for the absurd look twice.

It reads:

"Chief Scott McElroy and the Evansville Police Department regret to announce the death of Lieutenant Arthur Phillips as a result of natural causes."


My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Lt. Phillips, but I'm sure their grief would not be lessened if his death had been of something other than natural causes.
