Only in Italy


Only in Italy would someone spend hours and hours replicating the contents of that tin box that everyone has lurking in a damp part of their garage. In chocolate.

This is all deeply disturbing.

Along the same lines as the previous post - These are a few sample items replicated in chocolate ( again, another South American tribal tradition) and presented to the victim atleast 28 days prior to their demise as a warning and tease. The Calabrians have taken the sinister element of the "weapon replication" to extremes here, I suspect this is merely a sample of the 150 kilos or so of junk they plan to tie up in the sack that will be fixed to their victims legs prior to being slid quietly into the merky water at night. Your enemy has a macabre sense of the tension required to maximise fear and dread - 28 days in the minimum notice required - BUT - the agony can be prolonged at his discretion. It should be of some comfort to note that tradition has it that only the finest chocolate of say 80% cocoa content should be used.

ooh - incidentally, both the zippo lighter and the pasta trimming wheel are obviously include as massive clues intended to get you to take the threat sriously.

Disturbing, but marvellous. The whole process should be recorded, as in the Dennis Hopper film The Last Movie, with a Panavision camera meticulously made out of wicker. Anyway, good to see Diplo back from his holidays riding an Indian round the Great Yarmouth Wall of Death.

How brilliant, Mr Combo! That spanner lurking underneath makes me feel that, if you boys covered your tools in chocolate, more of us girls would want to handle them.
