Yeah, so I’m probably using the word “irony” incorrectly, but it is a bit of a coincidence. Today was the last day for the local ConAgra plant. They made Slim Jim snacks here. In 2009 they had a deadly explosion that pretty much spelled the end of their hopes of expanding.
On the same day, former Pro Wrestler, Macho Man Randy Savage, the spokesman for Slim Jims died in a car crash in Florida.
Randy “Macho Man” Savage, the professional wrestler known for his raspy voice, the sunglasses and bandanas he wore in the ring and the young woman named Miss Elizabeth who often accompanied him, died in a car crash Friday in Florida. He was 58.
Pretty strange coincidence. Sad for everyone involved.
