Sometimes, things happen too quickly for us to stop and think rationally. It’s a “fight or flight” instinct that humans have developed since the beginning of time and it’s become an integral part of our survival. In cases where our life may be concerned, we might only have seconds to react (or NOT react) in order to save our own life. That choice can be a fatal one, and for this poor woman, her “gut instinct” had been COMPLETELY misled!
KILLER BISCUIT WANTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER
(actual AP wire headline)
Linda 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, eyes closed, and both hands behind the back of her head.
One customer who had been at the store for a while became concerned 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 she replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.
The man called the paramedics who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that she had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head.
A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit 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 had 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.
And, yes, Linda is a blonde.
This story has been around for a while (try over 20 years!) and has stayed relatively similar throughout all of that time! It first surfaced as an article in the mid 90s by a writer who “heard it from someone else,” and the true origin may never actually surface. Regardless, it shot through chain emails and viral sites over and over again…simply because it’s just funny! What do you think of this joke?
