Twitter is losing it over this Pompeii man preserved in a hilariously inappropriate position
This is the town of Pompeii. It's pretty famous.
In 79 AD, Mt. Vesuvius erupted, killing the entire town.
However, its ash perfectly preserved victims' bodies in the very position that they were in, making the town a hugely popular tourist destination.
Most of the preserved bodies can be found crouching or lying down positions... except one very, very unfortunate man.

To be fair to the guy, he probably wasn't expecting a fatal volcano explosion and was probably enjoying the only peace and quiet he'd had all week.
Naturally, Twitter erupted (sorry) with a chorus of utterly brilliant responses:
He died holding his loved ones.— Persian Rose (@PersianRose1) July 2, 2017

He was an early socialist. He seized the means of production.— Rev. Bob Hartley, BA (@FuturaStalkee) July 2, 2017
Seize the means of REproduction, perhaps?
