19. Exactly.

Complete hoax. the bale would have fallen apart entirely, if the machine hadn't applied sufficient force to also kill him dead.

9. Completely fake.

 

The amount of pressure used to compress a bale would squash a human body flat. And the trim knife would have cut his head off.

There was probably another person hidden in the wagon with the straw suit already on.

All you have to do is watch a real baler in action to realize the baling mechanism was not turned on.

10. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......

This is the Sunday night DU contribution to "Fox & Friends", which would probably show this as real tomorrow morning if people like you didn't come along and apply logic and stuff and screw up the Plan.

18. yes, and that is the point!

It is funny! Bunch of serious people up thread just want to pick everything a part. It was meant to be funny. Nobody really insinuated it was real.

20. Really?

There's nothing about the video that warns anyone that it is a fake, and that attempting it will kill you in real life.

21. Oh jeez. Do you think anyone not drunk and inbred will be tempted to really try this because they...

don't know this is a trick? Its a hysterically funny piece, and I hope we don't thin the herd by influencing anyone to try this at home.

22. If one removes all possibility of it being real

and watches the video in that context, is it still funny?

23. That would depend on

the definition of humor "one" has and whether or not "one" laughed, I think? N would have to equal more than twenty for me to read the research and I would prefer a three way analysis... and you?

24. See? Now THAT was funny.

I actually found the video a bit offensive. It plays on a stereotype (dumb drunk farmer hick).

I know a lot of farmers. Not a one of them is dumb (though a couple do drink). You pretty much can't survive as an independent farmer and be dumb. (and every last one of them I know is a true-blue democrat, but that might be a PacNW thing)

So, as with any play on stereotypes, I tend to take a dim view of it from the start.
