4-way Suicide

"Wearied of a life of egg frying," the unfortunate Jim Smith decided to end it all. But despite trying to torch, hang, poison, and shoot himself simultaneously, his plan didn't succeed.

I'm skeptical that this ever happened. It sounds like the kind of thing reporters used to make up to pad newspaper columns. From The Seattle Star - March 24, 1922. (via Weird Shit in Historic Newspapers)

I would never commit suicide. There are too many people I want to torment/torture in my long, lingering, slow death to come.

True or not, I'm surprised some country singer didn't write a song about it.

@BD: I'm sticking around afterwards to do my torment/torture.

@RJ: No truck, train, or jail time.

@Alex: I agree. Must've been a practice run for April 1.
