Photo: Out with a bang: Sofie’s last setting
ALBANY, NY- Sofie Bassermann, 17, didn’t survive her 1,023,756th table setting. After taking the plates from the dishwasher, she collapsed in the short hallway to the dining room. Doctors discovered that she died of a spine related injury.
“Her spine couldn’t take the strain of carrying the dishes for all of her 16 person family,” said Dr. Jonathan Brim, “Also, think of the mental strain of actually setting the table.”
Her mother declined to comment, but the father offered this snappy remark:
“I don’t like how the picture is of my place setting.” – Ernst Bassermann
