Due to boredom today I decided to see if this would spice up the day.

http://gizmodo.com/5910167/man-killed-with-poisonous-umbrella

This is really bad: a man hit with a poisonous umbrella in a street of Hannover, Germany, has died after a long struggle in the hospital. It sounds like a James Bond movie, except that it's real and it sucks. This is what happened:
The 40-year-old man was walking peacefully through Hannover when he crossed the path of a stranger carrying an umbrella. The stranger was thin and had something stuck to his face, some kind of plaster. He didn't talk to him at all. The mysterious man just passed by and then turned around to stab his victim in the back using the tip of the umbrella.

Apparently, the umbrella had a needle built in, which the killer used to inject mercury in the body of the man. He got sick shortly after that, falling into a coma a few weeks later.

The coma lasted months. Then he woke up only to die last Wednesday. The polizei are puzzled, as there seems to be no reason for the assassination.

Seriously, next person who gets anywhere near me with an umbrella gets a punch on the face. Then we can talk. [The Local]

Any thoughts on this guys?

My thoughts? Clearly not the work of a James Bond villain, but rather it is the work of the Penguin! Devious. Very devious...

Is this a old story Carlos? I remember seeing a show about spies that had this type of killing in it.

Better start looking into his will to see who would profit from what sounds like a Sherlock Holmes tale.

Just showed up today on Gizmodo actually. Maybe it was an old story, but with the final update of the guy dying last wednesday.

Death by umbrella is either a really awesome or really lame epitaph.

I don't know why they typed James Bond, it doesn't feel anything like that. I mean if it was with a hat, then I would say Oddjob. But it just screams the work of the penguin as you said.

And they called me crazy for constructing a homemade bat signal in my back yard.

Nah, hes actually smart. If the penguin's out, it will be the jokers turn soon enough.

Sure you say that now. But who has two thumbs and isn't getting stabbed by the penguin? This guy!

I prefer poison pen letters to poison umbrellas any day

Kinda like scarecrow? He's actually my fav villain. He messes with your head so bad, and makes your biggest nightmares and fears come to life.

You might still get stabbed, or worse, umbrella-paled.
