Hugh Paxton’s Blog rates the following people as perfect applicants for my Horrible Bastards section.
We start with New York where there are some. In New York robbers came up with a strategy that involved deliberately spraying tomato ketchup on a victim then pretending to help clean them up by dabbing napkins on their gunk-stained clothing. While distracted an accomplice would steal the person’s purse or money or credit cards. This is a bit horrible. But in Australia a group of scumbags have taken this tactic one hideous step further. Customers using ATMs are bombarded with faeces. Helpful people move in to assist. Money vanishes. How low is that?
Moving on! Let’s have a look at China and South korea. Viagra is a hit. But some South Korean men clearly yearn for more. Hence the market for “flesh pills”. These are manufactured in China and contain ingredients extracted from dead human foetuses or infants. Given the one child policy pursued by China and the Chinese people’s cultural inclination to have sons rather than daughters, I’m guessing (shrewdly) that these pills are either fake (very likely) or are made of female abortion victims.
The flesh pill racket was uncovered in August last year and since then South Korean customs have thwarted 35 attempts to smuggle in the capsules, either in suitcases or in the mail. Somebody has been counting the confiscated capsules and has reached a figure of 17,451.
Quite a lot.
Scientists have given them a look over and certainly there are some that aren’t misinforming consumers about ingredients. They are not providing sell by dates and are keeping mum when it comes to the masses of “super bacteria” that arrive and are consumed.
Skull abuse? I’ll leave you hanging on that one. I need to make lunch and clean the kitchen, feed the cats. That sort of thing. But you will get the full story! Plus a bit more!
