Recently Pardoned Turkey Found Dead After
Claiming To Have Dirt On Hillary Clinton

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Babylon B) – A turkey recently pardoned by President Trump was found dead after claiming to have dirt on the Clintons, sources at the FBI confirmed today.

The official cause of death was suicide, though the bullet wounds were in the back of the turkey's head and the bird lacked opposable thumbs with which to operate a firearm.

The turkey had been publicly pardoned for the crime of being delicious and set free by Trump in a popular White House Thanksgiving tradition. Shortly after being released, the turkey confirmed its possession of "credible" information that would lead to the indictment of Hillary Clinton, posting on the bird's social media account that it was a good thing Trump had pardoned the turkey, so the world could find the truth out about the Clintons.

Donald Trump Signs Animal Cruelty Bill Targeting 'Heinous and Sadistic' Animal 'Crush' Video Producers

WASHINGTON (Daily Mail) — Donald Trump signed the first animal cruelty bill of his presidency on Monday, outlawing narrow types of egregious violence usually committed for the purpose of videotaping them.

The Senate unanimously passed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act this month after a similar House vote in late October. It applies to non-human mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians, building on a 2010 law that criminalized the distributon of so-called 'crush' videos – footage meant to satisfy an unusual sexual fetish – by also outlawing the production of the films.

Producing a crush video typically consists of filming a small animal being killed by stomping on it. But the new law expands the definition to include animals that are 'purposely crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury.'

 24-Cylinder Monster Truck Big Rig Sells For $12 Million At Auction

(Road and Track) — Want to talk about over-the-top? Well, this is about as outrageous as it gets. This truck is the result of a seven year project put together by Mike Harrah, and it's about the most insane thing we've ever seen touch the pavement. Even wilder? It just sold at auction for an incredible $12 million.
Thor 24 Monster Truck
The truck, aptly named Thor24, started out as a Peterbilt 359 crew cab semi, which was stretched to 44 feet to accommodate twin 13.9-liter Detroit diesel V-12 engines. There are a total of 12 superchargers attached to the blocks, allowing for a total output of 3974 horsepower. Despite weighing no less than 32,000 pounds, it's able to reach a claimed top speed of 130 mph.

Perhaps more impressive than the stats is the design. Each cylinder gets its own upward-pointing, fire-breathing exhaust header. The superchargers are stacked next to each other and chromed-out in spectacular fashion, with NOS bottles mounted in the middle cluster. The swooping vertical grille design is inspired by Ford Thirties hot rods. The polished aluminum dash has a boost gauge for every single supercharger. Best of all, it still has all the necessary equipment to tow a full-size trailer. It's every trucker's fantasy come to life.
