Stained glass window image of Judas Isacariot hanging
This is knot funny. A 27-year-old actor in Brazil accidentally hung himself for real while re-enacting the suicide of Judas. Somebody used the wrong knot. Tip for aspiring actors: audition for the Jesus role – you get top billing and they don’t really nail you to the cross.

Dying for your art is kinda overrated, IMHO.

Also from wiki:
Fish or fishes?

Though often used interchangeably, these words have different meanings. Fish is used either as singular noun or to describe a group of specimens from a single species. Fishes describes a group of different species.

Srsly, why is this here? I don’t think we need to be laughing about accidental deaths, not ones that aren’t “Darwin Award” material, at least. This was just a stage stunt that went wrong.

This is a serious issue. There have been similar deaths in haunted hayrides at Halloween. The actors that reenact hangings have actually died because some moron doesn’t know how to safely suspend them in a tree.
This kind of thing should not be allowed except for trained professionals.

I suspended myself in our front yard tree one halloween when I was a kid. It wasn’t really difficult. The rope around my neck wasn’t the one holding the weight. The one that wrapped around under my arms then continued down to make a harness around my waist and between my legs was supporting the weight. It doesn’t take a brains surgeon.

To be honest, that particular stunt WAS one of the few that was closely supervised by my mother.
