Step 1:  Shove first walkie talkie down victim's throat.
Step 2: Lock in auditorium with 1000 cats.
Step 3: From outside auditorium, use an electric can opener and start opening cans, all the while holding down the transmit button on the second walkie talkie
Step 4: Profit!

More pussy that you can shake a stick at

I found a book on local mortalities from around 1870. Each page had about 33 cases and it was fairly consistent - 32 cases of whooping cough or scarlet fever or some other bug, and one horrible accident, like 'crushed by falling wall' or 'run over by stagecoach.'

Beaten to death by your older sibling while they scream "stop hitting yourself! stop hitting yourself".

I heard you just get reanimated as a human with cat reflexes and cat "lives".

If there is one thing I learned from reading that...  The past is just like a foreign country.  They do things exactly the same there.

I thought the strangest death of the Victorian era was falling upwards to the moon because you grabbed at the loosened sample of Kavourite from your dirigible.

"Oops, I swallowed a mouse?!?!?!"

There was an old woman who swallowed a mouse, because she saw it work on an episode of House.
She swallowed the mouse to catch the spider, that wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly. I don't know why she swallowed the fly.
Perhaps she'll die.

It was the Victorian Era, nobody was able to get all that crap they wore off quick enough to ever have sex, so instead they all sought the sweet release of death, and it became a parlour game to have the most unusual death certificate in your neighborhood
 
2013-12-26 03:50:15 PM
I hate when that happens.
 
2013-12-26 04:31:54 PM
So if swallowing a mouse is fatal because the mouse tries to bite and claw its way out, wouldn't pretty much the same thing happen if you stuck a gerbil up your ass?

Hmm.. well, back in 1985/86 I was stationed in Pearl Harbor HI and made the "mistake" of walking down Hotel Street.. I was in my Dress Blues and was attempting to return to the base after a party and found myself being asked by many beautiful women if I wanted to have fun.... well.. I had no money and was politely turning them down.. after a short while this very large "worker" said "Hey baby, what's your sign?" to which I replied "Aquarius, wait... let me guess (pointing at her) WIDE LOAD?" holy crap.. for a fat woman she could RUN... I almost didn't make it.. I tell ya, those dress shoes are NOT meant to be run in... I never made that mistake again.. the comment that is.. not walking down Hotel Street.. ;-)

I think these deaths should have been kept Victoria's Secret.

In 1816, Morris died after shoving a piece of whale bone down his urinary tract to relieve a blockage.
