Icon81 Charles Manson calls off wedding; fiancée wanted to display corpse

If you are 80 and a 27-year-old woman wants to marry you, something other than love may be her motive. This is especially true if you are in prison and your name is Charles Manson. The New York Post reports the serial killer called off the nuptials because the bride-to-be wanted to put his corpse on display.

If somebody wants to put your corpse on display at your wedding, that does seem quite a good reason not to marry them...

O, I think she was planning to wait until he died naturally. Playing the long game, you know.

Of course, but this took a turn I personally hadn't expected.

Anyone that hatches a plan too crazy for Charles Manson needs to have their head examined.
I agree with this 1 gazillion percent.

Manson: I'm so glad you love me enough to want to marry me - after all, I'm no spring chicken!

Batsh*t Insane Woman: Oh yeah - in fact, that was a plus for me. When you eventually die, I'm gonna exhibit your corpse!

Manson:



I also imagine Batsh*t Insane Woman adding on a Bart Simpson-esque "and charge two bits a gander!"

The moment I heard that some woman agreed to marry Charles Manson, I was pretty sure she had a few screws loose. This latest development is just icing on the pile of froot loops.
