Too Bad This Is Bio, Not Origami

Observe:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_fold

Let's see... in Japanese, it'd probably be called something like 'shiniori' 「死に折り」... I can picture the scene ... dark room in a seedy bar someplace ... two nervous men look on as the Mafia head man works on an intricate origami design. One says to the other:

"Oh no, Kotaro-san... he just made the death-fold!"

or

'Taihen da, Kotaro-san...shiniori tsukutta!'
「大変だ、小太郎さん...死に折り作った!」

Incidentally, I'm sure my advisor is really glad that I'm putting my language learning to such productive use. :-p
