Entry from July 20, 2016
“What’s a suicide bomber’s worst fear?"/"Dying alone.”

A suicide bomber usually tries to take other people along with him or her. The tragic situation has developed a standard joke. “We all die alone… Unless your a suicide bomber” was cited on Twitter on August 25, 2009. “A lot of people are understandably afraid of dying alone. Don’t let it happen to you. Become a suicide bomber” was cited on Twitter on October 7, 2009.

However, an unsuccessful suicide bomber does die alone. “Grandad always said that his biggest fear was to die alone, which was understandable for a suicide bomber” was a popular tweet by Gary Delaney on September 25, 2010. “‘I guess my biggest fear is dying alone..’-suicide bomber” was cited on Twitter on July 9, 2012.


Wikipedia: Suicide attack
A suicide attack is a violent attack in which the attacker expects to die in the process. Suicide attacks have occurred throughout history, often as part of a military campaign such as the Japanese Kamikaze pilots of World War II, and more recently as part of terrorist campaigns, such as the September 11 attacks.
