I like a funny juxtaposition as much as the next person but it seems rather inappropriate and impertinent to post that album cover in a thread about such a tragic and recent accident.

How many people sharing this story are doing so out of a sincere, deep sense of loss for a... French Instagram model? IMHO, the only reason (most) people are sharing it is because it's funny. Maybe not "ha ha" funny, more like Dante's Divine Comedy funny. Now if it had been a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man that did the deed...

Perhaps. Yet, after reading the story, I think many people would agree it's a terrible tragedy and have sympathy for her family. One might even hope, naively perhaps, that such common sense isn't reserved only for the worker killed in a factory accident or the postman mauled by dogs. Instagram models are actually people too.

Anyway, I don't get why the album was supposed to be pertinent. It has "whipped cream" in the title. That's about it.
