About

Death By Snu Snu or simply Snu-Snu is a term for sexual intercourse originally used by a tribe of giant female, Amazonian-like aliens in the animated television series Futurama. Online, the catchphrase "death by snu snu" is typically used in memes or jokes as a humorous reference in discussions about exceptionally tall or muscular women.

Origin
