    PORTLAND, OR—Project manager Ron Butler left behind a 48-slide PowerPoint presentation explaining his tragic decision to commit suicide, coworkers reported Tuesday.

    "When I first heard that Ron had swallowed an entire bottle of sleeping pills, I was shocked," said Hector Benitez, Butler's friend and coworker at Williams+Kennedy Marketing Consultants. "But after the team went through Ron's final PowerPoint presentation, I had a solid working knowledge of the pain he was feeling, his attempts to cope, and the reasons for his ultimate decision."

    You put this in current events, but you do realize The Onion is parody, don't you?

    Not only is it a parody, but the publication has a disclaimer that it is not for readers under the age of 18. So, the link has been clipped. If there are no objections from the OP member, I will close this thread.

    PM me if you wish me to reopen the thread, Ben. Thanks.
