    Fortunately the lack of medication made him so depressed he couldn't even kill anyone

    Unfortunately his partner was doing just fine

    Fortunately I wasn't the target

    Unfortunately Oprah's legions of fans go berserk killing and rampaging.

    Fortunately, they all stop off at the book store to finish her suggested reading list first.

    Unfortunately, they start tearing through the store looking for an unaltered copy.


    Fortunately, some of them actually read some well written books along the way.
