Bosendorfer Down

The Telegraph reports that a nonprofit group in Britain spent two years raising over $51,000 or $88,000 (depending on which story you read) for a Bosendorfer grand piano, and then the blessed day arrived when the Bosendorfer would take up residence.

As the delivery truck arrived, all hearts were a-twitter in anticipation of the blessed event.

Then the unthinkable happened.

As la Bosendorfer was being unloaded from the delivery van it caught on the aft end of the truck, did a one and a half gainer, and ended up face down in the driveway. Mrs. Adie, one of the fund raisers said it made a sound like ten honky tonk pianos being hit by mallets.

To add insult to injury a local farmer had to be called to lift the remains back in the truck with a backhoe.

I know, I know, you're saying "B-b-but Sparky! This is supposed to be a law enforcement blog."

Yes it is...but this is hilarious.
