A Pennsylvanian teen has been arrested for sending his ex-girlfriend’s new boo a thoughtful, fun and interactive scratch-n-sniff birthday card LACED WITH RICIN inscribed with warm-wishes THAT HE BURN IN HELL and sealed with a kiss OF DEATH.
Not content with simply judging photos of his ex-girlfriend’s paramour on social media, Helman decided to spill the beans* of his watertight scheme to his co-worker at Target, telling them he would send a scratch-and-sniff birthday card covered in ricin in the hope that he might rekindle his relationship with his ex. Helman’s co-worker promptly called the police; a hazmat team, SWAT team, police officers and officials with the FBI responded to that call.
The plan – at best described as ‘flawed’ yet ‘sweet as Stevia’ – has resulted in Helman being charged with attempted murder. It’s the ricin on the cake, if you will.
*Ricin is made from castor beans.
