News, but not the serious kind
Sold! To the dude with the juicy liver!
Blog Guy, I know you’ve written about big auctions. Two weeks ago I saw photos of a Fukang meteorite that was supposed to go for more than $2.25 million at auction, but it didn’t sell. Why not?
People are savvy these days. Thanks to countless educational horror movies, they know the score. You haul this thing home, but it gets cracked on the way. You leave it in the living room and go up to shower. Meanwhile, the crack gets bigger, and out come some hideous creatures looking to devour human livers, and the first one they go for is yours.
Pretty soon cops come to check out the grotesque screams coming from your house, and of course they become instant liver donors. Your neighbor’s adorable mutt comes in and barks, and she’s history. It turns out the only thing that can stop the creatures is gasoline, but nobody can afford $4 a gallon for that, so your whole town becomes a LIVER-FREE ZONE!
If you don’t want all that on your conscience, don’t buy the Fukang meteorite in the first place.
