THE PHONE NUMBER +359 888 888 888

haunted phone number

You might think a cursed phone number sounds like the plot to an uninspired horror flick, but anyone who had the number listed above since its first issuing in the early 2000s has died.

That includes the CEO of a Bulgarian mobile phone company who died of cancer at 48, as well as two crooks—one a mafia boss and the other a cocaine-dealing estate agent, both of whom were “gunned down.” All three died within four years of one another. Since then, the telephone number has been suspended, and the company that owns it refuses to comment as to why.

Fart Freely With Shreddies

Here is another line of flatulence filtering underwear. Shreddies are sold for just $32 for women and $40 for men. Presumably because men are gassier. Apparently the skivvies use chemical warfare technology to cancel out your offensive butt thunder. Go buy here you  rot ass!
