That Head Is Outta Here!

By Wyatt Earp | October 4, 2009

Ted WilliamsRemember the story about how Boston Red Sox great Ted Williams had his corpse frozen? Yeah, well that is true.

What also may or may not be true – I sure hope it’s not – is that employees of the cryonics lab where Williams is housed beheaded the Hall of Famer and mutilated his corpse.

What. The. Frak???

A book scheduled for release next week allegedly describes how workers at a cryonics facility, Alcor Life Extension Foundation, mutilated the frozen head of baseball legend Ted Williams.

Written by Larry Johnson, a former Alcor executive, “Frozen” details how technicians beheaded Ted Williams and batted his frozen head with a monkey wrench.

Johnson writes that holes were drilled in Williams’ severed head for the insertion of microphones, then frozen in liquid nitrogen while Alcor employees recorded the sounds of Williams’ brain cracking 16 times as temperatures dropped to -321 degrees Fahrenheit.

Johnson writes that the head was balanced on an empty can of Bumble Bee tuna to keep it from sticking to the bottom of its case. (H/TInterested-Participant)

If this is true, it is my sincere hope that these savages are found, charged, and imprisoned for life. I cannot imagine what the Williams family must be going through after hearing about this. Simply despicable.

    If this is true these sickos need to be locked up for ever.

    “an empty can of Bumble Bee tuna”

    Sounds kinda hinky. Sometimes the trick to telling a tall tale is to include a few very specific, plausible details…like the tuna can.

    Color me skeptical.

    I’ve heard a lot of horror stories like this, about the funeral industry. Something I don’t even like to think about because it’s so depraved and wrong, you hate to think another human is capable of it.

    If it is true, that is so disgusting.

    I heard that rumor around the time it was supposed to have happened. Not a clue if it’s true, but if they ever thaw Teddy out, he’d be pretty pissed off.

    Again, truth is always stranger than fiction. Although I am hoping this is pure fiction. There are certainly some sickos in this world of ours.

    Rick – No possibility for parole.

    Proof – I hope you’re right. If not, this is a disgrace.

    DL – And yet, it probably happens more often than we hear.

    RT – Unbelievably so.

    Sully – Especially when he sees his head is not attached. This isn’t Futurama here.

    MeToo – Humanity is doomed. Seriously.

    Chill out, people. (LOL)

    It’s only Terrible Ted, whom God created solely so that Ty Cobb would have some competition for the “biggest asshole in baseball” award.

    I mean, it’s not like Ted was a Yankee…
