Death by stingray . . . .

‘Outrageous fortune’ certainly applies here:

A woman from the Thumb died after a large stingray leaped from the water off the Florida Keys on Thursday and struck her in the head while she was on a fishing boat with her family, officials said.

It’s akin to seeing Samuel L. Jackson disappear in a flash of shark flesh , except the shark was trying to commit aquatic murder. The stingray was just doing what stingrays do and happened to hit a human in mid-flight before dropping as dead as the human did.

 I’m not even going to make a comparison to Steve Irwin.

Interestingly enough, while googling this little bit of oceanic Warner Brothers cartoon tragedy, I did find another bout of fatal involvement with stingrays of another sort here . . . .



  1. I hated every second of Deep Blue because like 10,000 BC, it ignored the audience that would have loved it the most, and instead went after Mr and Mrs Pork and F*cking Beaner who wouldn’t know a gawdam Mako from a gawdam Porbeagle…

    I was soooo mad after I had paid for 5 tickets…never forgave them really.

    The nice lady who flew into the Eagle Ray luckily never knew what hit her, just like Mr Jonathan Moyle.

  2. wow the story about the dead scientists is really interesting!

    as for the stingray, I saw a youtube on scribal terror’s blog yesterday about huge japanese carp leaping out of the water and straight into fishermen’s boats. the reporter was hit twice by flying carp during the film clip

  4. Rain: You have your tentacle sex. I have my flying fickle stingray of fate.
