    Now that's bad staff work! A new take on Victor Kiam: "I liked the Segway so much, I bought the company! And died on one!"

    I liked the company so much, I bought the farm.

    Note to all sportscasters who always use irony instead of coincidence: This is a textbook example of irony.

    Well, the textbook example of irony would be if he was riding one while trying to prove how safe they were, and that a person would be unlikely to fall off a cliff.

    Jim Fixx will now have a roommate in the afterlife ...

    Oh, and I laughed out loud at the Wile E. Coyote art. Good pull.

    Safety tip No. 1: Don't ride your Segway near a cliff.

    Guess it was his segue into the afterlife.
