The Soul Collector is Here to Takes Your Toes

From Star Tribune

“A man calling himself a “soul collector” and a “medicine man” is accused of trying to cut off his neighbor’s toes and scalp him in Fergus Falls.

Forty-two-year-old Timothy Eugene Peterson is charged with attempted murder and second-degree assault.”

Well, I don’t know if they should go around insulting the  man’s religion like that. I  mean, it may sound a bit off kilter, but who are we to judge? He may have “another way of knowing”. I don’t know what connection toes have to the soul, but, honestly, I have no fucking idea how a cracker can turn into the flesh of Jesus, either.

According to the complaint, Ivan “Skip” Mallas was working in his garage early Sunday when Peterson approached him and allegedly began chanting while first trying to cut off some of Mallas’ toes.

Mallas says Peterson then tried to slit his throat, scalp him and stab him in the chest while telling Mallas that he needed to “collect his soul.”

Hey, at least he’s not molesting kids, you know.

    Wait, what?

    I must have misread that.

    What’s the problem? Toes are quite directly connected to the sole. There’s just a little bit of skin in between.
