Why Are The Grapes Trying To Kill Us?

Four years ago, the internet was transfixed by the tale of the local news reporter who stomped on some grapes, fell, and made a terrible sound for a long time. She was okay, and her story lived on to be told and retold through email forwards and pantomime, making it all the way to its own reference on 30 Rock. Now, via Boing Boing, comes news that grapes, those delicious balls of wonder that provide to humans no less vital a fluid as wine, continue to strike back like little giving trees gone bitter, or sour. A newsman in Italy was shocked by grapes:

Grapes have not yet used their viral video platform to commit actual murder, and seem so far to seek their revenge by eliciting strange, funny noises from the throats of their victims, but it’s only a matter of time before the grapes strike again, and next time we should be prepared for deadly force.
