O Happy Fall

Dick Van Dyke did a great pratfall over that ottoman, and Chevy Chase was a devastatingly bumbling Gerald Ford, but neither of their falls had the bang of this guy's. Premature Detonation Alert: "Suicide bomber falls down stairs...," from Agence France-Presse (thanks to Anne Crockett):
A WOULD-be suicide bomber fell down a flight of stairs and blew himself up as he headed out for an attack in Afghanistan, police say.... The would-be attacker tripped as he was leaving a building apparently to target an opening ceremony for a mosque that was expected to be attended by Afghan and international military officials, said Sakhi Mir.

"Coming down the stairs, he fell down and exploded. Two civilian women and a man were wounded,'' Mir said.

I'm sorry they were wounded. I'm glad this idiot wasn't able to kill anyone but himself. And no virgins will be issued.
