Joke of the Month
BISCUITS WANTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER (the actual AP headline)
Burnett, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws
and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some
groceries. Several people noticed her sitting in her
car with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with
both hands behind the back of her head.
One customer who had been at the store for a while became
and walked over to the car. He noticed that Linda's
eyes were now open, and she looked very strange. He
asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she'd been
shot in the back of the head, and had been holding her brains
in for over an hour.
man ca lled the paramedics, who broke into the car because
doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from
her head. When they finally got in, they found that
Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head.
Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making
loud noise that sounded like a gun shot, and the wad of dough
her in the back of her head. When she reached back to
find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was
her brains. She initially passed out, but quickly recovered
and tried to hold her brains in for over an hour until someone
noticed and came to her aid...
Linda is a blonde, but I'm certain that's irrelevant.
