Spam Kills: Just Ask The “Black Widow”

Russian officials are now saying that the suicide bomber called the Black Widow who died on New Year’s Eve was the result of an unexpected text message that set off her bomb too early. It may be the first case of death by spam ever recorded.

The woman is believed to be part of the same group that killed scores of people at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport. The message was from her mobile phone operator who wanted her to have a great New Year. She didn’t quite make it. She had already activated the bomb with only a couple hours to go until the attack.

I am not sure of the text nomenclature for such an occasion but time was clearly of the essence. She could have tried to type out “ROTFBMAO” (Rolling On The Floor Blowing My A– Off) or “TMI WYWH.”

  1. raff,

    Just because you mentioned it . . .


    Spam A Lot,

    Sarcasm is a precision tool, unlike yourself.

    You should not use it without proper training.

    If spam jokes are too sophisticated for you?

    Might I suggest a large plate of spam egg sausage and spam . . . that’s not got much spam in it. Or perhaps the Lobster Thermidor au Crevette with a Mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.

  2. Gosh that Buddha is smart. Who else knew that Hawaii is the spam capital of the world.

  3. “It may be the first case of death by spam ever recorded.”

    Only if one doesn’t count the deaths by coronary disease in Hawaii – the Spam consumption capital of the world.

  4. Nice to see just how well technology it touching us all. I guess the term, ” Reach out and touch someone.” takes on a whole new meaning now eh.
