A Feast for the Maggots – Sickening

A Madisonville man is being charged with involuntary manslaughter after police found 65 year old Darrell White’s wife covered in maggots.  46 year old Jorene White suffered from arthritis and had been bed ridden for quite a bit of time.  When authorities showed up to the house after White called 911 police were shocked to see the corpse covered in maggots and flies. 

Initially it was thought that White had been dead and rotting for a week.  Julie Wilson with Hamilton County Prosecuter’s Office said “When the coroner’s office investigated it, their examination of the body, they said no she had probably been dead that day.”    

Later on the coroner said that Mrs. White had died a day earlier from sepsis. 

It seems maggots made home inside Mrs. White’s rotting bed sores.

Another Jesus Sighting!

Another image of Jesus has been spotted, this time on a telephone pole. 

A man by the name of Rickey Navarre said on television station KPLC: “He might just be telling us something, you know, ‘I’m looking over you, I’m going to answer your prayers.’”   However local officials did not feel the same and deemed that the vines were too close to high voltage wires on the telephone pole, in other words, it is a safety hazard.  Officials ordered the vines be taken care of immediately before religious extremists come looking for a mystical experience.  The biggest fear would be that someone would climb the pole in order to get closer to Jesus.

Chupacabra Against the 300!

The infamous goat sucker strikes back, this time in Puebla located in Mexico.  It seems over the past couple months over 300 goats have been found decapitated.  Reports say hardly any blood is found at the vicious scenes leaving shepherds suspicious that the chupacabra may be the culprit.

My guess is 1 of the 2

  1. Psychopathic Shepherds that are killing their own and other shepherds live stock.
  2.  Some type of animal perhaps a coyote, wolf or maybe a hybrid of some sort.

No Not Brains, Cauliflower – Berlin Cannibal Restaurant a Hoax

A couple weeks back I wrote an article about a restaurant in Berlin that wanted to serve donated human body parts as a delicacy. The restaurant Flime turned out to be flimflam.  This hoax was perpetuated by a German vegetarian organization. 

During the press release last Thursday officials from this organization said it was actually a stunt to promote eating cauliflower, not human calves.  In fact the main point of the stunt was that eating animals should be just as stomach turning as consuming human flesh.

Although the group is happy with how the gag ended, lots of people are still very upset.  Even an official from a Brazilian town called Guajara-Mirim said he wants to sue the creators of the Flime website.  The site falsely claimed another one of these restaurants were located in the Amazonian town.  The official said that this act dismembered the town’s tourisms friendly image.

This disgusting joke was thought up a year ago by an ad agency called Serviceplan and the vegetarian group participated.  The agency placed fake ads in German newspapers in which they asked people to donate their limbs.  They also started up a website where people could fill out a donor sheet where questions about the individual were asked and submitted.  They even set up a fake eBay auction for a plate of liver, which ended up being yanked for the site, but not before reaching $1,000.

Chupacabra and the Hendersons

Over in Jack County, Texas, Staysha Henderson was greeted by a lovely creature that was inside her camper.  The creature was very skinny, hairless and had grey skin.  Unfortunately for Henderson she is now undergoing a series of rabies shots after being attacked by this creature as she went to offer it a bowl of water.  Henderson’s family shot and killed the mysterious creature, they believe to be the infamous chupacabra or in some circles it is being called the Texas blue dog.

Supposedly tests are being done to find out exactly what this creature is.

I will keep you all updated when the results are in.

Bad Universe: Great Show

Bad Universe: Absolutely terrifyingly entertaining.  This is not your typical science show about the universe; it’s more like Mythbusters meets astronomy.  With awesome experiments and highly enjoyable information that will both scare the crap out of you and keep you glued to the television.  There are not many shows of this caliber on television right now; this will capture the attention of children and adults, another perfect show for kids to watch with their parents.  You can completely feel the passion host Dr. Phil Plait has for astronomy and that is what makes this show Philnomenal!  Thank you Phil, you made it cool to want to be an astronaut again.

And I just want to add one more thing, if Discovery gave Ghost Lab a full series, they better give Bad Universe a shot at a full series, if not I will be insulted.

I’ll Have a Side of Farver Beans and a Nice Chianti Please

There are talks of a restaurant called Flime opening in Berlin.  It has been getting much attention in German media because the restaurant has started a campaign to find donors.  The donors are not being asked for money or any type of investments into the company, instead they are being asked to donate body parts.  Supposedly ears, testicles and stomach fat are being asked for, so they may be turned into high class gourmet meals.  According to this soon-to-open restaurant they will follow old cooking habits of age old cannibalistic tribe of the Amazon.   

In Flime’s campaign, through German media they are calling for donors to be involved in with what they call the new diners movement.  Flime is also calling for “open-minded surgeons” as well.   It is no surprise that this campaign has stirred up a bit of controversy.  Already groups of protesters are fighting for a ban of this restaurant, claiming that it is highly distasteful and disrespectful following a case of real cannibalism which occurred in Germany in 2001. 

The inspiration, Flime says, come from a ritual called “compassionate cannibalism” in which the indigenous Brazilian Waricaca tribe would eat pieces of loved ones to help with mourning on their passing.

Michael Braun, the vice-chairman of Berlin’s Christian Democrat party is trying very hard to get to the bottom of what he feels is a “stunt” or “warped joke.”  Sadly he has had no luck. 

Braun said “it’s disgusting, not least because it wasn’t long ago that we had the case of the Berliner who was murdered by a cannibal,” referring to Armin Meiwes , who was sentenced to life in prison for murdering and consuming Bernd Jürgen Brandes in 2001.

Experts believe that Germany alone has approximately 800 followers of the underground cannibal movement.

I am almost 100% positive Germany officials would step in to assure something this disturbing wouldn’t happen.  The dangers of consuming humans can possibly be extreme.  Just research the outbreak of kuru in the Fore tribe in Papua New Guinea, which came from something they called mortuary feasting.
