Has anyone ever really died of laughter?


It's a common enough phrase, 'We died laughing' but clearly it's a metaphor. On the other hand, I have heard some stories of people who heard a joke and died laughing - literally. Is there any truth in this or is it an urban myth? On the other hand, if you could die of laughter, what would the physiological process be that could cause 'death by laughter'?
