How Shrunken Heads Were Made


Westerners began buying up shrunken heads
in the late 1800s and early 1900s, causing the tribes to increase their rate of killing in order to supply heads for trade. Guns were the usual currency traded for the heads, but knives were also popular. Demand for shrunken heads became so great that counterfeits became common.

That kind of shrinking won't work with our Congress people. Their heads are all bone, no brain. Tough to shrink bone. Those skulls, solid through and through, best used as hammers to flatten their flatterers and Hillary-type Benghazi "it doesn't 'matterers'."

Hmm. A good hard punch in the face would be a challenge here. Maybe a Louisville Slugger and put it over the fence.
