a beautiful woman's ridiculous death

No one wants to be killed by a reusable whipped-cream dispenser. What a way to go, though, eh? I'm reminded of the Berke Breathed comic strip (Bloom County or Outland) in which the sanctimonious health nut gets hit by a meteorite while jogging. Hilariously random, yet kinda sad. For what it's worth, various sources describe this woman, Rebecca Burger, as a kind and sharing soul, not as a self-righteous health nut.

French article here. Burger was struck in the chest by the exploding dispenser, and that provoked a cardiac arrest. Emergency surgery was unable to save her, most likely due to internal hemorrhaging.

Gives whole new meaning to "flat-chested".

Sorry. My bad ...

Lots of jokes over at Instapundit re: how fatty food can kill you.
