Life is what is Life is what Life was

Questions – Who? What? When? Where? How? Why? Okay, now we have all of the tools suggested for writing the introductory paragraph of a feature story for a leading national newspaper:

Man was found dead today beneath the remnants of Planet Earth, his suicidal tendencies rewarded with a fierce jab of a pudgy finger on a flashing red button beneath a mountain somewhere. A preliminary autopsy revealed three possibilities as to the cause of death – suicide, homicide, or genocide. Police have only one suspect in this case – Man. A phone call was made to Man’s residence for further comment but there was no answer.

Why?
Well we almost answered all of the questions.
The dog kept chasing his tail until he bit it right off.
