Dark humor

I have a friend, a teacher at a Journalism school, who looks for great stories to show his pupils how to write. But in his searching, he stumbles with many bad examples.

Today he sent me the following opening text published in a newspaper:

“According to the National Institute of Statistics, this year will die many people who had never died before.”

Obvious: usually nobody who passes away has done that before.
The next sentence tried to explain that Spain’s life expectancy will go down one year because of the pandemic.

The subject is sad, but when I read the first line, I laughed out loud.

FOWC: Laugh
