Guy Who Posted ‘It’s Better To Die From Vodka Than Boredom’ On Facebook Dies From Drinking Too Much Vodka

Humberto Moura Fonseca

You couldn’t make it up.

We’ve discussed our fair share of ironic deaths here on Sick Chirpse, but the story of a student in Brazil named Humberto Moura Fonseca could top them all.

The 23 year old Fonseca was attending the University of Julio de Mesquita in Bauru, south-western Brazil when he decided to take part in a drinking game in which he had to down 25 shots of vodka in under 60 seconds. To be honest that does sound like it’s completely suicidal but I wouldn’t expect it to actually kill you.

Unfortunately for Fonseca though, that’s exactly what happened as he collapsed shortly after finishing the game and was then rushed to hospital – along with several other players of the game – but passed away from alcohol poisoning in the ambulance on the way there. Three other people are still in intensive care.

A friend of Fonseca’s, Rodrgio Pancetti explained what happened and also the irony of Fonseca’s death:

Humberto and the others were really up for it.

On his Facebook there’s a quote, a motto, from the Russian poet Vladimir Maiakovski which says “It is better to die from vodka than from boredom”.

I never thought that would become reality. But once he had finished he said he felt ill and suddenly collapsed.

So there you have it – be careful what you wish for and always try to drink responsibly guys – or at least don’t ry and do something as ridiculous as 25 shots in one minute. There’s no way that would even be fun or lead to you having a fun night and in the worst case scenario it could actually end up with you in a body bag, and nobody wants that.

Apparently police are now investigating the game – which was apparently organised by two fourth year students at the university – and want to charge the ringleaders with homicide. I bet that isn’t how they saw their university careers panning out after they organised one drinking game.
