Bizarre: October 2007 Archives

theflymovie.jpgA 6-year-old Central Florida boy nearly died when he became tangled in a large spider web Halloween decoration hanging at his home...
The spider web was so tight that Cade's parents said they were not able to get a finger between it and his neck. The couple quickly cut the nylon with scissors and saved the child.
I guess it's good that their Halloween decoration wasn't a noose.
According to police reports, the victim, 46-year-old Robert McDaniel, agreed to be tied up during sex but became alarmed and asked to be untied when Sutton pulled out a knife and said she liked to drink blood. Sutton then attacked him, slicing his leg, puncturing his arm, shoulder and back and cutting his neck and stomach. When he escaped, she chased him with a pickax.
Who doesn't have a pickax leaned up against their bed for this express purpose?
NEW YORK (AP) -- "My Sweet Lord," an anatomically correct milk chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ that infuriated Catholics before its April unveiling was canceled, returns Oct. 27 to a Chelsea art gallery, its creator said Tuesday.

In fact, the artistic effect could be intensified by adding some delicious crunchy eye-buttons to his yummy, chocolatey head - or even a chewy, nougaty center. How about Longinus poking him in the side with a giant Pixie stick, opening a hole through which pours sticky treats such as Now & Later, Laffy Taffy and Skittles? That would be the cherry on the top of this blasphemous sundae.

Blasphemous Sundaes - now that's a great band name for you.

For what it's worth, he looks less like Jesus and more like Frank from Hellraiser. Maybe it's the hooks though.
...go for the real thing:
Police say Jennings had the woman climb a ladder so she could test a noose that would support a skeleton during a neighborhood haunted house later in the month. The woman says her husband then turned on the garage radio and pulled the ladder away.
No comment on the intelligence of someone who can be convinced to test the strength of a noose, by standing on her tiptoes, no less. And Lucy isn't going to pull the football away at the last minute, this time, Charlie Brown.
Performance artists are known for pushing the bounderies, but one Australian has astonished his contemporaries by having a third ear implanted onto his arm.
You'll notice that it really is just a bunch of cartilage implanted under his skin, so it's not like he can listen to his iPod by strapping it to his arm. When you can have extra [working] arms attached at the elbows or eyeballs implanted in your palms - now we're talking. I could consider something like that.
Ignore all the tedious pseudo-intellectual art-school drivel that reads like it was generated by machine [SnobMaster 2.01]. This art project is interesting, if only because it looks like outerwear and accessories fashioned by and for cenobites.

Makes a great substitute for all those times you have desired to hollow out a human head and wear it as a hat while driving through three states.
