This Is Why You Should Never Attempt ‘Couch-Towing’

A couple Canadian guys hooked up both a sled and a couch to a truck in Montreal, Canada.  It’s called ‘couch-towing.’ You probably see where this whole story is going.

Once they had both hooked up to the truck, they started driving along back country roads at high speeds, because that’s probably all there is to do in Canada. Unfortunately, the roads weren’t quite as abandoned as they’d hoped, and another car coming in the opposite direction hit a 22-year-old man riding the couch, killing him.

What’s really sad about this story, beyond the death, is way this poor guy will be remembered. For the rest of eternity, he’s going to be that guy that died on a couch. And not in the cool ‘Mad Men’ marathon, ten boxes of Hot Pockets, complete heart shutdown kind of way.
