I was killing time on my lunch break today web surfing. One article lead to another and another and before you know it, BAM my world has been turned upside down by new found knowledge. Do you know how Catherine the Great died?
Think you know, huh? Something about a horse?
Pish! Catherine didn't die getting it on with a horse. Poor unfortunate soul - what an awful rumor to have persist about you centuries after your death. Catherine died having a poo. Catherine the great expired while have a bowel movement, having a stroke and falling off the toilet. Ha! You'd think that would be a scandalous enough end to have circulating so long after expiration. Alas, it seems Catherine's infamous sexual appetite would only be quenched in death by the rumor of an ultimate screw. Bestiality never sounded so... deadly.
Someone should make a PSA about taking safe poos. Now there's something that is hazardous to your health.
