RECORD STORE TALES Part 194: Marilyn Manson’s Ribs
“Hey, sir? My friend has a question for you,” said the young kid. 12 or 13 years old if I had to guess. He pushed his friend slightly forward.
“Yeah, uhh,” said the kid with the question. “Is it true that Marilyn Manson had two of his ribs removed?”
“What?” I responded, befuddled.
“Yeah, uhh,” said the kid once again. “I heard that, like, at a Marilyn Manson concert, he sucked himself off. He had his bottom two ribs removed so that he could bend far enough over to do it.”
“Wow,” I uttered, a little stunned. “Where did you hear that?”
“I bet another kid at school $5 that it wasn’t true. He said it was.”
I paused to build anticipation. “He owes you $5 then.”
“YES!” said the kid as he high-fived his friend. “I knew it wasn’t true.”
They strolled out, looking incredibly relieved.
