Killer Biscuits Wanted For Attempted Murder

Lisa Burnett, , a ersident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws, and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Several people noticed her sitting in her car with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. One customer who had been at the store for a while became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Lisa's eye were now open, and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Lisa replied that she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been holding her brains in for over an hour. The man called the paramedics,who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Lisa refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Lisa had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head... A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out, but quickly recovered and tried to hold her brains in for over an hour until someone noticed and came to her aid. Lisa is blonde.

I have gotten that email hundreds of times. Me thinks it is an urban legend.

This was one of the first myths tested on mythbusters. They were able to get the canisters to pop, but only after quite a while in the heat.

They tested this out on Mythbusters, and I believe they said this was never documented to have happened.

They bought every type of biscuit they could, and some did go off after being in the car for awhile. I think it had to get quite hot and it took some time, though.

EDIT-Well, that was weird. Ignore my post and look to JT's.
