BILLINGSGATE POST: A damning report released Wednesday by a top U.N. human rights expert included a video showing forensic psychiatrist and taxidermist, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, carrying a lampshade out of the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul. Although this video of Lecter may have been a mere coincidence, its circumstances seem problematic. As part of the probe into the disappearance of journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, it was the only visual evidence that foul play may have occurred.

That report also contained explosive new details documenting "credible evidence" that high-level officials in Saudi Arabia – including the kingdom's crown prince and de facto ruler, Mohammad bin Salman – were involved in the death of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and U.S. resident.

Although Saudi Arabia has denied involvement in Khashoggi’s disappearance, the fact that Hannibal Lecter was shown leaving the Embassy, has provided new fodder to speculation that Khashoggi was killed and dismembered by a Saudi team working for Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

President Trump had previously speculated, without providing evidence, that “rogue killers” could be responsible. Noting that Hannibal Lecter certainly fits into this category, Trump mentioned that he would defer judgment until Forsenic Taxidermist, Dr. Viscount Billingsgate, examined the lampshade allegedly carried out of the Embassy by Lecter.

President Trump:

"Hopefully, this lampshade will shine some light on the disappearance of Mr. Khashoggi."

Dr. Billingsgate, who received his doctorate in Taxidermy from La Fontaine College, is considered the last word in Forensic Taxidermy. His groundbreaking work in unveiling the “Jackalope hoax” is considered the “Magna Carta” of this noble profession. Through painstaking observation and experimentation, he determined that the antlers mounted on a jackrabbit’s head were actually removed from an antelope and mounted on the jackrabbit by a clever taxidermist; a ruse of the first magnitude. Also, it is noteworthy that Billingsgate also received Taxidermy’s highest honor for successfully mounting a full tin of anchovies after they had been canned in olive oil; certainly not a small feat.

President Trump is confident that justice will be done.

Slim Everdingle: “This has Hannibal Lecter’s signature all over it.”

Dirty: “Yo, Dude. Smells fishy. Wouldn’t be surprised if Crown Prince bin Salman ain’t on the hook for this.”
