Hi there, Tom Bodett.

We stopped at this newest Motel 6 and we checked out the room that had a funny smell to it. Turns out it was some sort of laboratory with all kinds of common household items. After seeing that combining these ingredients made a product that was highly dangerous yet addictive, I just couldn't pass it up.

I'm Tom Bodett for the new Motel 6 and, we best leave the lights out on this room for you, it's our little secret.

Funny, I literally just read this story before seeing it on Fark. I only opened the article to see if it was anyone I went to high school with. Honestly, shiat like this is common around here. Meth labs are busted damn near daily. I'd say a good third of my high school class has been busted for drug-related offenses (drugs directly or stealing/selling stolen goods/etc to acquire drugs). I can't say I blame them. There's absolutely nothing to do past like 6pm except for drive to Knoxville. Caryville only recently was able to have bars, and those bars have nothing but shiat like Bud Lite in bottles. Quite a sizable population lives in the vicinity, all of them bored and most of them poor.

i know that i am a nobody, but, done in two .
well done. I salute you.

Yes, your problem with meth is amusing, America. I suppose the sad tag is out for lunch.
 
2012-10-13 05:09:36 AM  
em will you be charged extra for this service?

It's because of fools like this that cops can routinely and with impunity kick down the doors of innocent families like the ones a few threads down. There ARE crazy meth manufacturers out there, and they ARE doing crazy shiat like setting up labs full of explosive and deadly chemicals wherever they feel like it.

Rufus Lee King: I always thought that "Super 8" was a strange name for a motel chain. It evokes memories of really old, cheap porn reels that some kid would "borrow" from his father's secret drawer, and we'd watch on a similarly "borrowed" projector.


the original room fee was $8.88. $2.22 more than the number of the beast.

How do ya hide under a mattress?
 
2012-10-13 06:08:37 AM  
Gee, however could that cunning plan possibly go awry?
 
2012-10-13 06:12:55 AM  
Luckily, the police had grenades.

Rufus Lee King: Buffet: How do ya hide under a mattress?

Former hotel worker, here.

In a lot of these places, one can lift off the mattress and box springs, and find that the bed is sitting on a hollow pedestal, Plenty of room.


At the very expensive hotel I worked at, one room developed an awful smell. Drove the house keeper nuts, she couldn't find anything under the bed, on the mattress, or in the refrigerators to cause the smell. She stripped every bit of linen and carpet out of the room, had the plumber in there to check the pipes, any number of things. Out of sheer frustration, she physically tossed the entire bed on it's side. That's when she found it. Between the mattress and the box springs, in the center where you wouldn't find it changing the sheets, was a grocery bag of 15 pounds of human shiat.

My take aways were that 1) Always take a peek under the mattress and 2) farks will pay that much money to do that.

Thank Isis no one turned on the Magic Fingers, the resulting explosion could've been seen from Canada...

Funny you should say that... i went to high school with a David Rector, one of the suspects in this case.

Note to meth cookers, under the bed is not a good place to hide.
 
2012-10-13 08:02:46 AM  
Frankly, I'd be surprised if wasn't being cooked at the local Super 8.

Rufus Lee King: I've seen some wild stuff at the "resort" hotel at which I worked, gadian, but you might have trumped me there. Mostly. I'd be putting rooms back in order, notice that wall pictures were hanging askew, and straighten them out. The vilest sort of porn mags would fall out from behind the frames. I would go get latex gloves before picking them up to dispose of them.


Which ones? So I uh, know what to avoid.

Don't this boy know in the south we do it up right? None of this motel crap, we put the meth labs in our trucks!

I didn't look that closely, but we're not talking "Playboy" or "Penthouse" here. They seemed to mostly deal with transsexual stuff, which I don't want to get into. I do recall the cover of a black-themed one called, I kid you not, "Pooty-Tang". I wish I could forget all this, but I cant unsee it.

OK well never mind then. I already subscribe to Pooty-Tang.

Were they able to smell it over the curry?

Thanks, Tom.

I hope the police tossed a flash-bang into the room to distract the meth heads before entering. You know, for safety.

I live about 15 minutes away from Caryville and every couple of weeks I hear about someone I knew long long ago getting busted for some shiat like that.
