Common Bizargo: American Delivery Human Physique Components from Bangkok

Right now we take a break from running a blog about all of the issues making the port congestion scenario worse for shippers like ILWU job motion, carriers’ congestion surcharges, and truckers strikes (sure, that’s occurring once more and we’ll have a look at the scenario for Thursday’s weblog) to have a look at a narrative in worldwide transport information that’s simply plain bizarre.

That’s proper, it’s time for one more installment of Common Bizargo, Common Cargo Administration’s collection that spotlights the weird tales of worldwide transport.

31-year-old American vacationer, Ryan McPherson was questioned by Bangkok police after he tried to ship preserved human physique elements, together with an toddler’s head, a child’s foot, and an grownup coronary heart to america, ABC Information reported.

The physique elements have been stolen from the medical museums of one in all Bangkok’s greatest hospitals, however McPherson claimed to purchase the objects from a Bangkok evening market when questioned by Bangkok Police Col. Chumpol Poompuang.

The next is from the ABC Information story by Thanyarat Doksone:

“He [McPherson] stated he thought the physique elements have been weird and wished to ship them to his associates within the U.S.,” Chumpol stated, including that the person was questioned together with an American buddy for a number of hours and launched with out expenses.

Weird is correct within the story itself. How may this not find yourself in Common Bizargo?

The buddy McPherson was questioned together with was 33-year-old Daniel Tanner. Whereas the story of shopping for the stolen objects at a Bangkok evening market was apparently adequate to be accepted by the police and get the pair launched, the 2 males did go to the museum from which the human physique elements have been stolen. That would simply be coincidence, but it surely provides credence to the police’s a number of hours lengthy interrogation of the 2 males. The ABC Information story does say that “closed circuit tv video didn’t present them taking any objects away.”

There’s a superb probability you haven’t heard the names Ryan McPherson and Daniel Tanner earlier than, however this isn’t the primary time they’ve ever confirmed up within the information for a bizarre purpose.

There’s a superb probability you’ve heard of McPherson and Tanner’s earlier enterprise enterprise, “Bumfights”.

Sure, plainly these similar two males pitted homeless individuals towards one another in fights, filmed them, and efficiently offered the movies again in 2002.

The ABC Information article stated Bumfights had “gross sales of about 300,000 copies at $20 every…” If my elementary math abilities are usually not letting me down, that comes out to about 6 million {dollars} in gross sales. I suppose with that form of cash, you may afford to journey to Bangkok and purchase human physique elements at an evening market. However would you?

To go from producing Bumfights to displaying up once more within the information some years later for attempting to ship human physique elements from Bankgog to the U.S. that police stated have been labeled as toys, in response to the ABC Information story makes it appear to be there could also be one thing weird occurring within the heads of those males.

I’m reminded of the “You could be a redneck…” comedy routines Jeff Foxworthy did within the late 90’s. For this story, I’d change redneck to weirdo.

When you give bums money and alcohol to combat on digital camera… you could be a weirdo.

When you purchase human physique elements at evening markets in Bangkok… you could be a weirdo.

When you ship stated physique elements to associates labeled as toys… you could be a weirdo.

I’ll simply finish with another if. In case your weirdo exercise includes worldwide transport… you may end up written about in a Common Bizargo weblog.
