June 24, 1869

On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY.com! in 2013 the first Twisted-History was written and posted on the Twisted-History.com blog. Chim-Chim the Smoking Chimpanzee has been quoted as saying that the blog is tolerable after smoking some medical marijuana and sipping on the second of three large banana daiquiris.

Also on this date in 1869 Mary Ellen “Mammy” Pleasant officially became the Voodoo Queen in San Francisco, CA. Marie Laveau of New Orleans sent her a Feu Follet to remind her not to get above herself.

    I love Twisted-History! Love it, love it, love it!

    I print them all out and keep them in binders, so that when I’m standing outside your window at night, watching you sleep, I can read them over and over again.

    I was going to ask you to send me a lock of your hair to put in my Twisted-History shrine, but I found one while I was going through you’re garbage, so it’s all good.

    I can’t wait to see what you post next! (no seriously, I can’t wait — hurry up and post something!)

    P.S. There's just something about Twisted-History that really speaks to me. (no seriously, it keeps whispering horrible, unspeakable things… Please make it stop)
