In their defense, they were all off-duty at the time.

For the bachelor party, the groom-to-be's friends ordered a special surprise: a cake with a stripper inside. As cliché as that is, things took a decidedly bad turn when the stripper failed to emerge from the cake on cue. Naturally, the men assumed she had gotten out of the baked dessert at some point and so went ahead with opening it in order to check. It was their turn to be surprised, however, when they discovered the lifeless body of their hired dancer still nestled patiently inside the cake. Apparently, she had suffocated after waiting over an hour in the sealed wooden confection.

Well that sucks.  It's no fun if the stripper comes pre-killed.

show me: Glancing Blow: I'd hit six of those seven.    He got a real pretty mouth ain't he? (obscure?)

Obscure? Maybe if you're, like, twelve.


Are we having a bad day?  I hadn't thought Deliverance was a top 100 movie on Netflix.  But just go ahead, get it out of you, I'll be your substitute object for your aggression.

Was his name Bob ?


Yes, but the situation gave him a sinking feeling.


Actually, I think it was Stone Phillips.

Kinda like a big, fatal explosion on your oil rig, resulting in an oil spill, during a party celebrating safety.

This had a ring of urban myth, but sure enough - I found the original article from the Weekly World News (which is even more reliable than the internet).

According to that article the guy had a 2.5 (Yes, I klnow, but that's what the article says).

It's not ironic because all the guards were off duty and probably drunk so I would fully expect someone to drown under these conditions.

Now THAT is ironic, unlike rain on your wedding day...
