He decided to go out in a specular way but then the news ended up being overshadowed by another story.

To me it meant something like this; An idiot goes and kills himself, and nobody really cares or realize what his true intention was.
I don't think the comic ever hinted that he wanted to kill himself, he just wanted to fly lol.

And that's one of the many reasons PBF comics are awesome.
4 pictures and it's still up for interpretation.

I agree. Always more fun when there's room for interpretation. Most comics are either too predictable or guided. In this one the author just draws up a scenario and the outcome, what lesson should be learned, is up to the reader.

I was thinking at first he wanted to fly but didn't plan it out enough so it ended up being reported wrong. It wasn't until Niets brought it up I thought of how it was bad timing that he did it when the Prime minister was attacked by baboons.

Haggis is right though, there's lots of great layers to most of these seemingly simple comics.

I'm not sure if it's the punchline but I found it hilarious that his death was over-shadowed by such a trivial event such as a baboon attacking the prime minister.

Yeah I saw it as an attempt on the writer's part to point out the gap between what we think of our own actions and what others think of them, mixed with a little irony. However, like any writer he/she is biased. In this case the writer is betraying him/herself as a massive pessimist. Incidentally, only a massive pessimist would find it very humorous.

I'd rather be a pessimist than an optimist thinking he can fly.

He's not flying! The yet motor and wings do that for him. If yet motors and wings counts as natural extension of the human body, I've flown too! Even more impressingly, I was sitting down while I flew!!

That is sort of counterbalanced with the fact that I was sitting down while I flew. Have you ever even seen a bird that can fly while sitting? :)
