An award-winning American reporter named Tanya, who denounces her U.S. citizenship, converts to Islam, and marries a Taliban leader. Tanya celebrates by firing off several rounds of an AK-47 into the air during her wedding to fit in with the crowd, but loses control of the gun and dies when one of the bullets hits a metal pitcher and ricochets into her skull, where it bounces inside and causes massive bleeding and immediately fatal wounds, killing her instantly.

  • The ending line of the doggerel "in the end, she did her country a huge favor... by dying" is a variation of the same line used in the doggerel for Way to Die #206.
