THE ‘BUSY BEE’ ROLE ($45,000 – $55,000)

BusyBee

In 1859 … as British explorer, Alfred Russel Wallace was strolling around Bacan Island (in Indonesia) … when he came across something, extremely extraordinary!

As he described it … it was “a large black wasp-like insect, with immense jaws like a stag-beetle.”
Turns out, it was a never-before-seen … wild species of bee.

What made it so unique … was its sheer size!
The species (naturally named, Wallace’s Giant Bee) is the world’s largest bee  … with females reaching lengths of nearly 4 cm … with wingspans of more than 6 cm!

Long thought extinct, the WGB had not been spotted for more than a century – until American researcher Adam Catton Messer, finally stumbled across another – in 1981!

Pinata.png

Did you know … the most traditional of piñata styles is the star with seven points?
Each cone represents 1 of the 7 Deadly Sins.

THE EXECUTIONER ROLE (OTE: $93,500 – $115,500)

Executioner.png

In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland … a woman named Betty and her son lived in miserable poverty.  While it was uncommon for someone raised in such conditions to be literate … Betty was!

She taught her only son to read and write and would constantly remind him that only money could bring him happiness in life. And, when he was old enough … she encouraged him to leave Roscommon and find his fortune – in America!

Years later, one dark evening … a tall, well-dressed gentleman knocked on Betty’s door looking for a place to stay. Betty let him in, and later that night, as he slept … Betty crept into his room, and murdered him for his money!

As Betty rifled through the man’s things … to her horror … she discovered the ‘stranger’ was, in fact … her son!

Overcome by the shock of her actions, Betty ran screaming into the streets … confessing her guilt. She was arrested, stood trial … and was condemned to death – by hanging!

On Execution Day … as Betty and a few other criminals were being led into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to personally perform the executions.

Seizing her opportunity … Betty asked that her life be spared … in return for hanging the other prisoners – herself!

The sheriff agreed … and Betty got to work! “Lady Betty” was so efficient and capable … she was appointed as Roscommon’s Hang Woman … a job with a yearly salary … and room and board!

Well … not much, really.

THE ‘ROUGH ON RATS’ ROLE ($75,000 – $80,000)

RoughOnRats.png

In 1895, Tillie Gburek married John Mitkiewicz. In 1914, John passed away from what was believed to be “a heart condition”. Tillie’s second husband, Joseph Ruskowski also died … as did her next boyfriend.

Tillie’s third husband was Frank Kupczyk. Tillie would greet Frank in the morning, saying “it won’t be long now” … “you’ll be dying soon”. As Frank’s health deteriorated … Tillie began knitting herself a mourning hat … and even purchased a bargain coffin – storing it in their basement!

Upon Kupczyk’s death, Tillie remarried, yet again. And, as you’ve probably guessed, this husband (Frank Klimek) also fell ill. But this time … doctors suspected arsenic poisoning, and lab tests confirmed it!

As she was being arrested … Tillie turned to the police officer and said …”the next one I want to cook a dinner for, is you”.

The bodies of Tillie’s victims were exhumed … and were found to contain lethal doses of arsenic. Her “weapon of choice” had been a rat poison called – Rough On Rats!

Following her arrest, it was found that; a total of 20 people had fallen ill after dining at Tillie’s home (14 of whom died) and Tillie, newly nicknamed, “the Poison Widow” … had life insurance policies on all of her husbands!

PS: On the bright side … you may be glad to know, after 3 months in the hospital … Joseph Klimek survived!
