R.I.P., Big Shot.

Rest In Peace, dear old Big Shot.


Overstuffed, it choked to death.

I tried the Heimlich Maneuver ...
to pry loose the sandwich. I had to use sheer force, and a sledge hammer.

Emergency crews were unable to save Big Shot, who lost a few (gear) teeth
during its chewing.
He just lost his bearings.
Life support was futile.

Big Shot led a short but distinguished life in the Paper Jungle.

In addition to the sandwich he was eating, Big Shot is survived by his Cuttlebug, to whom he had been wed for just a few years, as well as dozens of little SizzLit friends, dies, and Folders and plates.

Burial will be in the Recycling Bin.
No viewing is planned other than the photo above. 

Big Shot: Died with a die in his mouth.
Go figure.

R.I.P.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure the Cuttlebug is suffering too. Please extend my condolences to her as well. I hope that the both of you are comforted by the fact that he died while doing something he loved.

Hugs,

I am so sorry (chuckle, chuckle) for your loss (snicker)and send my heartfelt condolences. You are too funny. I am really sorry about your Bigshot tho'. Sounds like something a good dose of retail therapy would help to me.

At least he died doing something that he loved. Know that he lived a happy life, and rejoice in that.

So, do you send flowers or cardstock for a funeral like this?

I would love tho see the sandwich he choked on, the poor thing, I wonder if his warrenty will cover, its worth a phonecall, all they can say is no...

I just had similar happen to my Cuttlebug. We took off the handle and right side and the metal was cracked inside and unfixable. :-(
So I ordered a "Big Shot". Thanks for warning me about the problem. I'm sorry your dear Big Shot hit the dust/recycle bin. :-)
