Good Grief! You can't make this stuff up

Roasted Fetuses In Luggage: Chow Hok Kuen Intended Gold-Leafed Corpses For Ritual


"British citizen Chow Hok Kuen, 28, was arrested in Thailand on Friday after police found six fetal corpses in his luggage, according to the Independent. The bodies, which belonged to fetuses between two and seven months old, had been roasted, and some were covered in gold leaf.

Thai police made the discovery after receiving a tip that a black magic services website was offering fetuses for sale, according to the New York Daily News.   Roasting fetuses and covering them in gold is part of a black magic ritual called Kuman thong, which means "golden child" in Thai. The preserved bodies are thought to bring good fortune to the owner, according to the International Business Times.

Authorities believe that Chow was planning to smuggle the fetuses to his native Taiwan, where one corpse could sell for up to $200,000 Thai baht, or $6,376.  Chow faces up to a year in prison on charges of hiding and covering dead bodies, according to CNN."




My head hurts.

  1. Humans are really stupid creatures. Am I wrong to take some comfort in the knowledge that Western Civilization is not alone in doing really stupid and perverted stuff?

  2. Am I the only person who doesn't care what happens to a dead body? Unless he cut these out of unwilling women... what does it matter what a person does with a dead a fetus?

    Strange? Yes. Fucked up? Definitely. Would I do it? No. But is it really criminal?

    1. I believe it's primarily the health department that makes it criminal. Pathogens and all that. But it doesn't take much figuring to figure if there's profit in dead fetuses then collecting dead fetuses is going to be a business that can be traced all the way back to the providers... hospitals, abortion clinics, desperate women, etc. who will sell or abort at any excuse even without the donor's permission. Probably should be illegal, yes.

    2. Well then work should be illegal, since you can't trace that back to forcing people to work, ergo work is slavery...

      If they were acquired without coercion, I don't see the problem. And it says they were charred, so that pretty much makes them sterile.

    3. *can trace...

      Also, maybe sex should be illegal, because that might lead to prostitution. And food, since that can lead to obesity. And blogging, because that can lead to psychopaths advocating for fetal mutilation and fetishism. Damn slippery slopes...

    4. You're way off base on this one Ginx. Maybe nothing should be illegal or maybe the ten commandments should be the law of the land or maybe... society has a right to declare what is and is not proper behavior and what the punishment should be for transgressors. Anarchy doesn't work, even in the guise of freedom. Your freedom to swing your arms ends at the tip of my nose. More and more noses means your freedom to swing your arms is more and more restricted. If you want to live in society, that's the way it is. If you don't, better find someplace where you can swing your arms at will.

    5. I don't believe in anarchy by any means, but I believe the only laws that should exist are those which prevent individuals from hurting others. Can you explain how fetishizing a fetus corpse hurts someone? I know it weirds people out, but I think religion is weird... should I be fighting to make it illegal, or should I just focus on those few cases where religion victimizes someone and treat that as the crime, not religion itself?

    6. I can never tell when you're serious or jousting. It's a fine line and I mostly come down on the side of freedom but there is merit in public decency and society does have a right to ban offensive behavior. The fine line is, of course, where to draw the line. Seems to me peddling roasted fetuses crosses the line, but I also see your point.

  5. Yes, they showed us this story too. There's no accounting for taste, is there.

    Having just read your previous post I could apply the same words to you: rats are cute? Just as well you have predators around who get rid of them. At least they provide feed for slightly more photogenic creatures. Rats have such a bad name, they are pretty much forced to multiply like the clappers.

    1. Rats do have such a bad rap. They're just trying to make a living like all of the rest of us.
