WOMAN SHOT IN HER DRIVEWAY

WOMAN SHOT IN HER DRIVEWAY

Woman Shot in her own Driveway
 
Linda Burnett, 26, a resident of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was visiting her in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries.
 
Later her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the driveway with the windows rolled up and her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head.

He 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 Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.
The husband 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 Linda 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 initially passed out, but quickly recovered. Linda is a blonde, a Democrat, and an Obama supporter, but that could all be a coincidence.
 
The defective biscuit canister was analyzed and the expiration date was from 2008, so it was determined to be Bush's fault.

I seem to be a magnet for it. Friends send me good stuff from all over the world. I just pass it on.

That story has been making the rounds on the internet for years,

 

back then Linda was a  republican and voted for Bush twice.

I don't care if the story's been around since the last ice age. It's just a joke --jeez

Better a funny urban legend than what was reported on our news this morning.  A man decided to commit suicide and missed.  He shot himself in the hand and the bullet went on to kill his girlfriend.

What's funny is I refuse to open those cans of biscuits...i can't stand the POP sound they make!

 

I usually have my husband open the can...while i'm in the another state, lol (ok, not quite that bad but I do either go into another room or outside...)
