I've come across something similar. King George II's son, Frederick, Prince of Wales, was killed by a cricket ball. George II hated that particular son and thought it was the funniest thing he ever saw.

I'd have to agree. Too bad it wasn't caught on tape. That would've been a real winner on Britain's Funniest Home Videos. :P

*blinks rapidly*

*looks at post again*

That's just.........sad. Being killed by a monkey throwing coconuts is just sad. The only cool way to die by having a coconut thrown at you is if it's a vahnatai(sp?) doing the throwing.

Maybe it wasn't a monkey, but a Vahnatai in disguise. A razor-pitching Vahnatai Warrior could certainly take out a Townsperson. Yes, it's all so clear now. The Vahnatai are trying to take over the world, one assassination at a time. We must prepare... *dashes away from computer and begins boarding windows shut.*

That would not be cool. That would be humilliating.

Hundreds of Pacific islanders die every year from falling coconuts. It's really not that funny.

Yes, I understood that. I was just harkening back to the Golden Age of bizarre deaths.

Is it just me, or am I the only one thinking 'BOOM HEADSHOT'? That monkey ought to be trained to play CS.

Or Unreal Tournament.
"HEADSHOT!"

But really, that is sad.

I only hope that the cause of my death is not broadcast on the internet. I always saw death as a private thing - a wonderful, enlightening, liberating thing, sure, but not something I'd want 15 year olds to point at.

Everybody knows, but nobody understands.

But if you died in an interesting and out-of-the-ordinary way...

I wonder if the monkey had a little grudge.

The only intresting way to die is death due to an almost impossible chain of events that are completely unrelated to each other, and as I see it a monkey throwing coconuts to you has nothing to do with that.
