Further proof that sometimes truth is stranger than fiction (Obama White House withstanding)...
A Southwest Airlines employee called police after finding 40 to 60 human heads in a package set to be transported to a Fort Worth medical research company, the airline said.
"It wasn't labeled or packaged properly," said Ashley Rogers, a Southwest spokeswoman. "They called the local authorities."Nothing to see here, just like shipping a dog or cat, right? (/sarc)
Little Rock police turned the heads over to the county coroner, who questions where they came from and if they were properly obtained.
"We've come to the conclusion that there is a black market out there for human body parts for research or for whatever reason," said Pulaski County coroner Garland Camper. "We just want to make sure these specimens here aren't a part of that black market and underground trade."Hmmmm. A black market for human parts? Say it isn't so! But as disturbing as this might be, a quick call to the shipping company should iron things out, yes???
He identified the supplier as JLS Consulting of Wynne, Ark.
JLS's business license was revoked in December, according to the Arkansas Secretary of State's online database.
Company founder Janice Hepler did not return phone calls Wednesday. Her voice mail indicated it was full and no longer accepting messages.Are you fargin' kidding me? No business license? Not accepting calls? Ruh Roh Janice....
But in an earlier interview with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, she blamed the problem on the private courier she had hired to transport the body parts.
"It not our fault" Janice was quoted as saying. "We believe the Bush administration is at fault for the paperwork snafu; and James O"Keefe was responsible for the issues with our phones." (/sarc)
"Nothing is wrong," the newspaper quoted her as saying. "We're providing the documentation."Must have been written by the same people who wrote the recent Health Care legislation. Who knows, maybe this was a way the HHS plans to recoup money to pay for coverage of illegal aliens under ObamaCare.
Anyhow, this is a perfect opportunity for a gratuitous Judas Priest posting, so enjoy. And watch out for those heads the next time you fly Southwest!
***DING!*** YOU'RE NOW READY TO MOVE HEADS FREELY ABOUT THE COUNTRY!
