Damn this month flew by! And super exciting. Lots of celebrity deaths. We even had a BucketHead with two hits in one day!
Anyway, super short this month. Here we go.
Shad at #1
Ellen at #2
Shad at #3
Just goes to show that anything can happen. Look out, Shad, you talked too much shit last month and look what happened!
MAN ON THE STREETS: Last month I asked about celebrities who have caused death. (Murder, accident, whatever-you name it.) Rina and Ellen both chimed in, thanks girls!
Laura Bush: Yes GW’s ol’lady! Seems like marrying a total dip shit and all around fuck stick wasn’t her only mistake in life. When she was 17 she ran a stop sign and crashed into another car killing the driver, who happened to be one of her classmates. (On a side note, Matthew Broderick also crashed into someone while driving in Ireland. The other driver died and Broderick got a $175 fine. Singer Brandy also killed someone by crashing into them.)
Don King: The fight promoter and one time leader of a gambling ring actually killed two people in his younger days. One he shot, the other he stomped to death. SO that crazy hair isn’t a fashion statement after all. It’s more of a warning– “Stay back, muthafucka.”
Sid Vicious killed his lover Nancy by stabbing her while high on heroin.
Keith Moon ran over his chauffeur and bodyguard outside of a pub in England while fleeing from skinheads.
Ted Kennedy also crashed a car but he hit water. He got out and swam to safety but his female companion wasn’t so lucky, she never got out of the submerged car. Kennedy turned himself in the nex day to police. He was given a 2-month suspended jail sentence.
Okay, June’s here. Remember a few months back, there was a rumor that Jon Bon Jovi died. Not true. Can you guys think of any other celebrity death rumors? Let me know.
FUN FACTS: Here is a list of strange deaths throughout history. Thanks neatorama dot com!
Austrian Hans Steininger was famous for having the world’s longest beard (it was 4.5 feet or nearly 1.4 m long) and for dying because of it. One day in 1567, there was a fire in town and in his haste Hans forgot to roll up his beard. He accidentally stepped on his beard, lost balance, stumbled, broke his neck and died!
Allan Pinkerton, famous for creating the Pinkerton detective agency and developing investigative techniques such as surveilling a suspect and doing undercover work, died of an infection after biting his tongue when he slipped on a sidewalk!
One more for you: Famous Tennessee whiskey distiller, Jack Daniel, decided to come in to work early one morning in 1911. He wanted to open his safe but couldn’t remember the combination. In anger, Daniel kicked the safe and injured his toe, which later developed an infection that killed him!
Internet + History + Death = FUN!
Alright, that’s it for now. I’ll see you all next month. Keep watching for updates and have fun!
