Killer Biscuits Wanted for Attempted Murder

My neighbor sent me this. My husband told me that they proved it could happen on Myth Busters.

KILLER BISCUITS WANTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER (the actual AP headline.)

Linda Burnett, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws andwhile there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries.Several people noticed her sitting in her car with the windows rolled upand 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 andwalked over to the car. He noticed that Linda's eyes were now open, andshe looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda repliedthat she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been holding herbrain in for over an hour.The man called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doorswere locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head. Whenthey finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread stuck tothe back of her head. A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from theheat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad ofdough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find outwhat it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. Sheinitially passed out, but quickly recovered and tried to hold her brainsin for over an hour until someone noticed and came to her aid.
