Hey and welcome to the LTPF!

Let's see...

Did love save the life of a H/A/M?F? (not sure if you're already familiar with our abbreviations - H/A/M stands for human/adult/male, and H/A/F is human/adult/female. Other abbreviations and LTPF jargon can be found here.)

thousands - H/A/M?F?

Time period relevant? Location?

Welcome! =)

One life = H/A/M? (Human/Adult/Male?)

Thousands = H/A/M? H/A/F? H/A/Mixed?

True story? FYOI? (from your own imagination = you made it up) FSEI? (from someone else's imagination = fictional but you didn't make it up)

Thanks for the welcome

Did love save the life of a H/A/M?F? H/A/F

thousands - H/A/M?F? Mixed

True story? yes

Time period relevant? Location? could have happened anywhere/anytime, so I think it's irrelevant

so based on your last answer, am i right to assume the thousands were amused by this after she was saved? i.e. They weren't present at the time.

did this amuse thousands via a book? a film? TV? a joke? internet meme? viral?

Are the thousands scattered all over the world? From one specific place or region? Country?

is it a true story? was it shared by email? Video? Images? Youtube video? Facebook group? Fb page? Twitter? Website?

Are we talking about someone's life genuinely being saved? by the love of a single person? by the love of many people?

She was in danger of death? would have committed suicide?

erm...this just seems very weird...

a man was planning to kill a woman?
a man would have killed a woman?
they fell in love? and this prevented a killing somewhere down the line?

they were strangers that fell in love? through circumstance? which was that he was going to kill her?
hitman relevant?

i'm really struggling to see how this situation could be made amusing!

Well, I guess all the key info are here.

***** SPOILER *****

A hitman was hired by a housewife, who was convinced that the target was having an affair with her husband. When the hitman found out that the target was a childhood friend, he told her about the hit and then they came up with a plan. He took a picture of the target lying down with ketchup all over her and a machete under her armpit, showed it to his hirer and split the money with his new girlfriend.

All of the major news website here in Brazil showed this story (in the bizarre/funny news section, of course) and it even made to some foreign newspaper websites too.

This made the news here in the US too, and I happened to remember the story.

Great puzzle!

Oh, gosh, I'm sorry I came too late to contribute to this one.

I'm not here nearly as often as I'd like to be, but I join everyone in welcoming you. Yay!

Henriquefm, your story remind me of two movies, though - coincidence?


The first is the Coen Brothers's first film, "Blood Simple," in which a hitman only pretends to kill the cheating couple.


The second is "Hot Fuzz," in which our hero is saved by a friend who


(SPOILER)



pretends to kill him by using a packet of ketchup.

Again, I add my welcomes!
