Craziest line I may have ever read? I think it may just be. Harpers tidbits. Not a lot of follow up. (Mildly NSFW).[More:]It was discovered that a woman who paid a South Korean company to create five clones of her pitbull Booger was Joyce McKinney, a former Miss Wyoming who escaped British authorities in 1977 after abducting a Mormon missionary, securing him to a bed with mink-lined handcuffs, and raping him three times.
Also: I definitely need to re-subscribe to Harpers. I miss it sorely. Plus - it's pretty damned cheap.

This article is both entertaining and disturbing.

I agree, ufez--now that I'm at a library that doesn't take it, I really should subscribe. This is mostly just a memo-to-self, in fact.

I remember the Joyce McKinney case well. This story broke in the UK last week and, having seen the pictures, I'm sure it's the same woman.

It has to be the same woman. A very bizarre story! Why on earth would you keep the same surname if you were on the lam?

To flee on bail, she donned a red wig and disguised herself as a member of a mime troupe ...

You just can't make stuff like that up.

Joyce McKinney is originally from Asheville. Just sayin'.

Oh man. The chupacabra thing got me thinking about weird animals and I started doing a little hunting around based on some vague memory that somebody videotaped an introvertible cougar near here, sort of thinking about doing a post on the blue and that led me first to here which then led me to this - ghost footage at Asheville high school! and all in all I think I'm going to go to their next meetup.

not to point and laugh or anything - okay, to point and laugh, I admit it - but, syntax, check out this craigslist ad: I swear, I think it's Genesis P-orridge!

She admitted it was her.
