Corcoran State Prison, CA—In a move that many are calling overdue, mass murderer Charles Manson is finally changing his toon about his tat. This will not change the minds of the California parole board and, as Manson attests, is not even an indication he’s moving away from Neo-Nazism. Manson describes the original tattoo as a symbol misunderstanding made long ago.
“I found out this thing that’s been on my forehead for over half a century is actually the ancient Hindu symbol for well-being,” said Manson. “Can you believe that shit? Talk about a slap in the face. It’s enough to make a guy want to spit, which is really one of the only things to do here in prison.”
When asked about the decision about his upgrade, Manson said, “I had one rule. I wanted something that could in no way be misconstrued as any kind of symbol for well-being. Klingons are never going to be confused with anything mamby pampy. I’ve been in jail forever and if anyone knew the real meaning of my tattoo I could have been in real trouble in here.”
The Klingon home world is thus far nonplussed by the gesture.
Manson hopes the Klingons will change their minds about the aged psychopath. “I want the Klingons to all be part of my family and I really want to be part of theirs as well, I mean if I have any shot at an afterlife it’s Stro-vo-kor or bust.”
No deceased Klingons were available for comment.
