Skull First #10 The Brazen Bull
Long ago a hyper little sadistic ass kiss named Perillos wanted to get his twisted little rocks off with the Greek tyrant Phalaris, and earn some brownie points while he was at it. Perillios was a bronze worker and constructed a terrible device know as the brazen bull. The main idea of which is to incase a human being in the abdomen of a gigantic bronze bull and then strike a fire beneath it to roast set human alive. The real bit of flare added on to impress Phalaris was an intricate series of pipes that traveled from the abdomen of the bull to the mouth which. This is a purely asthetic addition "..his screams will come to you through the pipes as the tenderest, most pathetic, most melodious of bellowings”. To say the least Pharlaris was impressed with the nasty little hoozzaawatzit and decided it needed to be tested...He ordered Perillos into the contraption to mock scream and demonstrate the pipes. However the king quickly locked him inside and began to roast him alive in his own invention...For some odd reason Pharalis didn't just let him burn though. He dragged him out while he was still alive talked to him for a bit then threw him down a cliff. That's antiquity for you... Now I'm sure you could read into this story draw morals about how man creates his own demise, and we get what we give in the end. But to me this story has one lesson to teach: WATCH YOUR FUCKING BACK.
