Curtain Calls

Pietro Aretino, an influential Italian Renaissance author and libertine, reportedly died Oct. 21, 1556, of suffocation while laughing too hard at an obscene joke during a meal in Venice. Another account says he laughed so hard he fell out of his chair and struck his head, fatally fracturing his skull.
