When a new serial killer is named in the media, everyone wants to know where the killing field is located. Now we fear low social followings. Here’s how one can fix the other.
When Ted Bundy was active, spines shivered. People took notice. They wanted to know who was being killed, why they were being killed and how they died — so that they knew it was not them who might’ve been next. Nice. Self-preservation — a pretty normal thing. Staying away from killers is good. Dying is bad.
But everyone dies and, without a dramatic ending, death is typically boring. Why don’t we spice it up a bit and do our social profile a favour one last time?
In this influencer-lead, narcissistic world, we should consider fronting up to our local people-butcher and having their special type of carnage make our social media following sail up to the stratosphere. We can post a selfie during our demise, wearing our entrails as a hat. Think about it. What a send-off that would be!
If you’d like to raise your social profile and die for, say, some virtue signalling cause, please leave your email address here and someone will get back to you soon. You and your bloody hat will be the next social media sensation!
