Dis­pen­sary Cor­ner

A FU­NERAL par­lour in the United States has found a novel way of at­tract­ing new busi­ness - of­fer prospec­tive ca­dav­ers a free pizza with the lot!

The Krause Fu­neral Home sent out thou­sands of post­cards to peo­ple with the of­fer of a free pie if they come in and chat about plan­ning their own death.

Of­fer­ing po­ten­tial clients the chance to chow down on a meal packed with salty, sat­u­rated fatty good­ness while dis­cussing their own mor­tal­ity - well that’s just in­cen­tive mar­ket­ing at its best.

THE HARM­LESS pur­suit of some nov­elty sauna hats has gone hor­ri­bly wrong for one woman shop­ping on Ama­zon who in­stead re­ceived a Cuban can­cer drug made from scor­pion venom.

Af­ter Mea­gan Day pur­chased the item from a user in the Ukraine go­ing by the highly du­bi­ous han­dle “Rus­sian Bear”, the pack­age fi­nally ar­rived a month later packed full of vials filled with a strange blue liq­uid.

As strange as in­ject­ing scor­pion venom may sound as a treat­ment for can­cer, it still makes more sense than in­ten­tion­ally don­ning weird head­wear in the sauna.

Day re­cently vented her frus­tra­tion about the er­ro­neous item on Twit­ter.

“I just wanted to schvitz in style, now I’m an illegal venom owner,” she com­plained.
