Fetal Disgorge Endorses Albino Race Hunting

Now, there are golf tragedies. Bing Crosby ate it from a heart attack after a round of golf, and just this year a 75-year-old man survived being attacked by a damn alligator while playing at the Lake Ashton Golf and Country Club. The nine-foot reptile was hiding in a water hazard, trying to increase the cachet of that term.

Knowing what I learned from the band's demeanor, I was sure Fetal Disgorge would think that story was hilarious, and it made me wonder what other violent, gruesome sports they would enjoy.

"Albino race-hunting seems to get us wet!!" says Palumbo.

Did I look up what that was? You bet your Aunt Peg's adult film career I did.

While a search for that exact term brought up nothing in the Houston Press' extensive archives, there is of course a history of albino persecution throughout history. Albinos as evil, demonlike villains have shown up in The Da Vinci Code, The Matrix Reloaded and even in films that don't completely suck ass.

I had to see it, so you do too
In East Africa albinos are believed to be magical. At least, their flesh is, and witch doctors are known to kill or desecrate the graves of albinos in order to procure ingredients for magic potions. There's also the idea that it's a contagious curse that must be lynched from existence, so whether they are good lucky or bad lucky is kind of a moot point. In Tanzania it's customary to seal albino graves in cement to prevent robbery.

I started to tell Palumbo that the practice of hunting albinos has been the subject of severe crackdowns in recent years, but then I remembered I was talking to fans of partially digested baby corpses and decided to just go drink myself unconscious instead.
