A nodeshell obfuscation
I said to Catherine the Great, but she didn't listen. No she wanted another horse. So I called in a couple of servants and started to ready the horse winch. We got the thing set up, and I noticed a little bit a of fraying on one of the ropes. I didn't think much of it, but in retrospect that was probably a mistake. Anyway we started to get the horse prepared, and then I turned and started to ready the other wench (she'd have had me hanged for that pun).
When she was ready, we got the horse winched up into the air, and I started to ease him forward. The Empress looked eager that night, and I wanted to get this thing done with. We started to lower the horse towards her, and damn... the winch broke. The horse winnied and collapsed on top of Catherine. She didn't even have time to gasp. She was dead -- crushed under her lover to be.
I can't help it, but the only thing I remember thinking as I watched the horse fall was... "Yeah you're really fucked now."
Perhaps it would help know that this is (according to (probably untrue) rumor) how Catherine the Great actually did die.
