Beware the Greyhound

Vince Weiguang Li, who immigrated to Canada from China in 2004, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old carnival worker Tim McLean. He has yet to enter a plea.

Thirty-seven passengers were aboard the Greyhound from Edmonton, Alberta, to Winnipeg, Manitoba, as it traveled at night along a desolate stretch of the TransCanada Highway about 12 miles from Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. Witnesses said Li attacked McLean unprovoked, stabbing him dozens of times.

As horrified passengers fled the bus, Li severed McLean's head, displaying it to some of the passengers outside the bus, witnesses said.

A police officer at the scene reported seeing the attacker hacking off pieces of the victim's body and eating them, according to a police report.

I wish I could say I was shocked but this kind of thing happens at my work all the time. Never fall asleep during a meeting right before lunch.

That's what you get when you work for a government agency. Death by powerpoint, one way or another!

If your head gets severed at work, can I have your staple remover?

Beware the Octopus! (Inside joke--my apologies to those who have never heard a "Fluid Imbibers" song.)
