It is always the quiet ones

It turns out I was too quick to blame Methodism for a recent stabbing and beheading incident on the TransCanada Highway; it is, after all, only a tiny minority of Methodists - and the writings of their most sacred scrolls - that consecrate such behaviour.

Judging by the reported mutilation and flesh-eating, Badger practiced the old religion. They used to call it "going Wendigo".

A police officer at the scene of a grisly beheading on a Canadian bus reported seeing the attacker hacking off pieces of the victim's body and eating them, according to a police tape leaked on the Internet Saturday. In the tape of radio transmissions, a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer refers to the attacker as "Badger" and says he is armed with a knife and scissors and is "defiling the body at the front of the bus as we speak." On the tape, which lasts about 80 seconds, officers continue to detail the attacker's movements until one reports, "Badger's at the back of the bus, hacking off pieces and eating it."

Flea-readers are urged to use caution in reading the linked AP piece. The above details are far less gruesome than reportage on Canada's Facebook response to this atrocity. Though 2000 does sound like a whole lot of wall posts.

"Defiling!" That right there is what you call a euphemism.
