Fans of toxic characters Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain should take a cue from these Red Bull blackmailers if they want better results.
Police in Austria are investigating claims by the Red Bull company that they are being brownmailed by a group of feco-terrorists. The plot? The constipirators are threatening to sneak into supermarkets and replace all the cans of redbull with cans that contain poo. Salzburg police report that there have been no confirmed cases of contamination, only threats, but it's a powerful message to send nonetheless. There is no word on what the pootesters actually want from the delicious energy drink manufacturer, but we can confirm that the threats were made with hilarious Austrian accents, like in an eighties action movie.
"Give us da money, or we vill put das poopen unt da Red Bulls!"
Kind of makes Waffles for Stephanie, a campaign that encouraged readers to mail breakfast foods to Dan Didio's office, seem like amateur hour by comparison, doesn't it? Perhaps fans of the supposedly "toxic" characters should take to their local comic book stores and smear fecal matter on DC comics until Didio and his cronies agree to allow the characters to appear in DC comics again. They could put poo particles onto copies of Batgirl, which features red-headed harlot Barbara Gordon instead of the preferred Stephanie or Cass. Really, poo could be used to contaminate any of DC's comic books for this purpose, except, of course, for Geoff Johns' Justice League, which would probably be improved by the addition.
The Outhouse will keep you updated on any further poo-related developments, because, well, we're called The Outhouse for Christ's sake.
