Dear Porkchop: How do you want to die?

A 71-year-old man died from excitement the first time he went out on his new motorcycle, says a coroner.

John Parsons, a retired engineer from Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, suffered a heart attack on his 125cc Honda and fell into the path of an oncoming car.

The bike was delivered the day before and he was "very excited" about riding on it, the Cardiff inquest was told.

Coroner Mary Hassell said it "was too much for his heart," adding: "In some ways, what a way to go."

She kinda looks like she doesn't want him to have the motorbike in the photo.
