THE ‘DIE HARD’ ROLE (OTE: $125,000 – $140,000+)

In January 1933, five friends came up with a devious plan. With the help of a crooked insurance agent, they purchased a life insurance policy on Michael Malloy – a homeless, alcoholic.

Tony Marino, a tavern owner … offered Malloy an unlimited tab, banking on the idea Malloy would summarily drink himself to death … and the 5 friends (later dubbed The Murder Trust), would cash-in on the policy.

Malloy seized the opportunity to drink, from sunrise to sunset … and returned every day, to do it again.

Growing increasingly impatient … Marino swapped the liquor with antifreeze, then turpentine, then horse liniment and finally … rat poison. Malloy just kept drinking – unfazed!

In desperation … the men tried feeding Malloy a plate of raw oysters, soaked in wood alcohol … and a sandwich of spoiled sardines, mixed with poison & steel shavings. Malloy asked for a second helping!

They tried freezing him to death … and even ran him over with a car … yet, Malloy survived.

On February 23, 1933, after a full day of drinking … Malloy passed out. The five men carried him to a room, put a hose in his mouth (connected to a gas jet) … and Malloy died, within the hour.

Dr. Frank Manzella pronounced Malloy’s death a result of ‘lobar pneumonia’ and his body was swiftly buried. Police quickly heard rumors and ordered Malloy’s body be exhumed and examined.

Long story short … the men were aptly convicted of murder, and the “good doctor” was held as an accessory after the fact. One of the men went to prison while the remaining four booked their date with the electric chair!

NUMEROPHOBIA (1)

Believe it or not … there’s a term for people with an irrational fear of numbers!
It’s called ‘numerophobia’.

The #13 is widely considered to be unlucky. So much so, that many architects skip the 13th floor when designing their buildings.

The #666 is believed to be the sign of the devil!

And … many people prescribe to the belief; bad things happen in 3’s.
For example, lighting three cigarettes with a single match … will lead to death!

MIRACLE

On February 22, 1980 … in Lake Placid, New York, the hockey team Brooks had pieced together from a patchwork of American college and other amateur players took to the ice in the semi-final game … against an all-star line up from the Soviet Union.

His group of underdogs pulled-off one of the most miraculous upsets in hockey history.

KrampusRole

As December rolls around in North America, children are all a flutter with thoughts of Christmas and Santa Claus.
But … while these children contemplate the gifts they hope to receive from Santa Claus … their counterparts in Eastern Europe are faced with a far different scenario.

TheExecutioner.png

In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland … a woman named Betty and her son lived in terrible poverty.  Although uncommon for someone raised in such conditions, Betty was literate … so she taught her son to read and write. She constantly reminded her son that only money could bring him happiness … and when he was old enough … he left Roscommon to find fortune – in America!

One dark evening, many years later … a well-dressed gentleman knocked on Betty’s door asking for a place to stay. She welcomed him in, but that night, as he lay sleeping … Betty (with knife in hand) crept into his room … and murdered the man for his money!

As Betty rifled through the stranger’s belongings, she discovered this ‘stranger’ was in fact … her son!
Overcome by the horror 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 several other criminals were filing into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to personally perform the executions.

Seizing the opportunity … Betty asked that her life be spared and in return, she’d hang the others herself!
The sheriff agreed … and Betty got to work!

“Lady Betty” (as she came to be known) was so efficient … she was appointed Roscommon’s official Hang Woman, a job with a yearly salary … as well room and board!
