...good lord.

edit: At first I read this as there being a comic book version of this story. I was wondering what hosed up writer wrote this. Not sure if this is better or worse.

If it was, you already know which hosed up writer would be the one who wrote it.

I want to read about that story cause that sounds insane but I also don't wanna get put on the no-fly list for searching for "effects of suicide bomb in rectum explosion."

It was discussed on QI. Series I (season 9) episode 9. It was actually an assassination attempt. I can't remember the names involved or find the clip. The episode is on Youtube, though.

Sounds like he had a bad case of explosive diarrhea

I always feel sorry for people who have to sort out dead bodies, but that sounds like an especially bad instance.

You did a super job wrapping things up! And I'm not just saying that because I have to!

I think that was a story Chris Morris talked about, the British satirist who did Four Lions. I remember him saying in an interview that there are real life attempted terrorist bombings that were so slapstick you couldn't get away with putting them in a film

I can believe it. The most famous and significant assassination of the 20th century occured because the assassin stopped to get a sandwich.

Hello I am a person doing a thing via buttons. It's amazing what electronic singnals traveling through space can accomplish.

Makes ya think.

Purple m&ms are the best.

Was that part of the comedy if errors that led to Franz Ferdinand being assassinated? I remember reading an abbreviated description of everything that went wrong and thinking 'how is this not already like six movies'

Yeah, after the first couple of assassins failed (including one guy trying to commit suicide by swallowing expired arsenic and jumping into a 13 cm deep river) the convoy sped up, quite understandably. It went past Princep (the eventual assassin) really quickly. Princep, at this point, gave up and went to get a sandwich. He saw the Archduke go past the sandwich shop. They then stopped because part of the convoy had gone the wrong way and they were trying to correct it. It was very Coen bros. And on such things did the fate of empires turn.

The sandwich thing is most likely not true.

Thinking about that guy who tried to do a car suicide bombing at Glasgow Airport, crashed the car after it failed to detonate and was immediately kicked in the balls so hard by some football lad that he dislocated his foot

"I KICKED BURNING TERRORIST IN THE BALLS SO HARD I BROKE MY FOOT" remains one of the absolute best headlines.
