Fake Your Own Death Wig

Oh my gosh he killed himself!

Ever wanted to fake your own death very publicly just to scare people? Say..... Maybe your boss?

I have.

A very dramatic way of killing yourself is to bite the barrel and blow your brains out. Very dramatic, very messy, and... very hard to fake.

Unless.....

You get your Fake Pistol, which has powder packets, but no bullets. The barrel is sealed, all hot expanding air exits via the vents on the butt of the pistol. When you pull the trigger; the gun goes BANG and it sends an electronic signal to the explosive pack in your wig. With your head protected by Kevlar or something, the firecracker goes of and blows red jelly and fake brain chunks everywhere behind you.

Your boss/fellow pedestrians/whatever scream until you get back up, in which case they scream even louder thinking you are a zombie.

       A bun for developing a genuinly funny idea, although there is the complication that anyone you know would notice that you were wearing a wig.

       This is how it’s done in the movies.

       Must be a Dr thing, I guess.

       I think it's more common to say 'bite the bullet'. Which is worse, if anything.
moomintroll, Nov 09 2005
  

       Biting the bullet is something else entirely. (A reference to early battlefield surgery, I believe.)

       And inevitably we bite the dust.

       In the 1975 Western Film, "Bite the Bullet", starring Gene Hackman and Candice Bergen
(about a group of ex-rough riders, an ex-prostitute and a gunfighter enter a horse race in the desert)
during one of the more tender moments in the film, one of the riders has a bad tooth and gets a spent bullet casing as a temporary crown of sorts.
He 'bit the bullet' to seat it into place.

       A bit rough on the gums, I would think.

       And having done that thing (don't ask), it doesn't work too well.
DrCurry, Nov 10 2005
  

       A "dragon's nostril" comes to mind.

       Can I have that installed in a bald cap, please?   

       Oh, and could you rubberize the gun barrel tip so I don't chip a tooth trying to be all dramatic in front of my boss? Thank you.

       I imagine this would be useful in trying to get a raise.   

       "So, I don't ge the raise?"   

       BAM!   

       "HOLY S*** I should have given him the raise..."   

       "Really, boss?"

       + love it. I'd do it at the hairdresser's!

       What if the people called 911? But a bun anyway, cause this is pretty good.
craziness, Apr 12 2006
  

       Now if you could just figure out a way to covertly install the wig ON YOUR BOSS. Yesss... excellent. [+]
