I wanted to launch tonight’s overnight thread with a Humpday History Highlight, primarily because I think this topic is the epitome of teh funneh.
On May 4, 1990, scumbag criminal Jesse Tafero was executed in Florida. Tafero, who was convicted of murder two police officers, was sentenced to die by the electric chair.
Jesse Tafero is executed in Florida after his electric chair malfunctions three times, causing flames to leap from his head. Tafero’s death sparked a new debate on humane methods of execution. Several states ceased use of the electric chair and adopted lethal injection as their means of capital punishment.
Yeah, never mind the inhumane executions of the officers; let’s focus on the murderous piece of detritus.
Up next: Attack of the 50-Foot Corpse!
The mummified remains of the actress who played the femme fatale in Attack Of The 50 Foot Woman has been found in her rundown Beverly Hills home. The state of the body indicates Yvette Vickers, 82, who was once a Playboy centrefold may have lain there for a year.
As my co-workers are wont to say: “She deeeeeaaaaad!”
