  1. Ew. I read Naked Came the Florida Man and in the book one of the main characters felt it was his duty to provide justice to wrongdoers. Some – most – of his tactics made you puke a little in your mouth. When seeking justice from someone who swindled money from an honest older couple, he used the guys head as a nest for bot-fly larva. It was really gross!

  2. And then there’s BALDNESS, which scientists say is caused bu the loss of hair,
    And BACILLI BELLICOSIS, which is found in abundance in my underwear.
    I thought I could stop hair loss by putting my underwear on my head,
    But such folly burned my follicles, leaving me a bald hothead instead.
