Shipment of 18 human heads intercepted at airport

"Because the shipment's paperwork was not in order, agents confiscated the heads and sent them to the Cook County Medical Examiner for safekeeping." [Reuters]


  1. “What’s that in the road ahead?”

    “At’s no ‘ead lad, it’s a smart lookin cabbage…”

  2. “the medical examiner is photographing and x-raying the embalmed heads for record-keeping purposes”What records does the medical examiner need to keep of something that is essentially being thrown away as rubbish??? What a total waste of their time, unless they’ve given it to the new boy as a training exercise.

    Not to diminish the massive waste of time and effort in Italy sending their rubbish all the way to America to be disposed of. Even if there is some reason not to have crematoriums in Italy, we’ve got them in the UK. 

  3. So it’s come to this:  Your papers are not in order, so now you’re going to lose your head for it?
