The God Of Fuck's nearly-severed ear.
It seems like forever ago that shock rocker Marilyn Manson was freaking out your parents and pissing off your local clergy, but he randomly popped onto our radar this weekend. We found a pair of tweets implying that the God Of Fuck himself had nearly lost an ear the previous week, after he kicked the shit out of some square in a Swiss bar:
I was hit by a glass table in a dangerous fight. I was however, the victor but had to have 24 stitches to keep my ear from becoming Van Goth— Marilyn Manson (@marilynmanson) December 11, 2012
First of all, the "Van Goth" pun is hilarious. Secondly, we're very happy he didn't end up losing his ear. Minutes after his first update, Manson posted an image of his nearly-severed ear. To be honest, it doesn't look that bad.
The story raises more questions than it answers. How does someone get hit with a glass table? What was Manson doing in Switzerland? Where's the photo of the other guy?
Noisey will be following this story closely from now on, as it defines our age and is extremely culturally relevant. Further bulletins as events warrant.
