More International Tabloid News from Michigan

Comic relief for a weary global village, courtesy of Michigan. By now you've probably seen it--the guy in the wheel chair stuck to the grille of a semi near Paw Paw. Thank goodness no one was hurt. This story has been making its way around the globe since Wednesday.

What's interesting is the variability of the details (was it a 2, 4 or 6 mile ride) and the inventive headlines:
An odd hood ornament (Canada)
No injury in wheely scary semi ride (Canada)
US man survives truck 'road' trip (Australia)
An electric, wild ride (South Africa)
Man cheats death on lorry (UK)
Wheelchair man gets highway ride (BBC)
