The "Was on Sale" Song

I ran across a conspiracy theorist website that has this picture of a CT Scan that purports to be a "surgical implant".

To me, the more astounding thing is all the fillings and caps.

Is this thing POSSIBLY organic or Photoshopped or what?

Where is the implant supposed to be? All my eye is drawn to are the horribly bad teeth.

Chin implant ? Kinda looks like some silly puddy.

So I tried to be invisible. It's surprisingly possible.

Heh, I was looking for something foreign. I saw the hyoid and disregarded it since I recognized it as a normal bone. Little tiny thing, tends to fracture in strangulation cases.

Geez, at least they could have found an x-ray of someone with a pin in their back or something more interesting.

Shush! Don't say that!

Someone's probably already started working on a "God is My Shadow Government" glurge, thanks to you!

It makes a bit more sense if you read the associated web page.

Harold Holt was an Australian Prime Minister who mysteriously vanished in 1967 while swimming. Imagine the conspiracy theories there would be if Kennedy has simply vanished instead of being shot (though assuming you've been given an 'implant' because "they" know you know "the truth" is way out in tinfoil hat land)

Re Astra: these would be bad teeth all right, but you'd probably not notice if the guy had a good dentist and you met him (the guy, not the dentist). And teeth like that are not uncommon, they're unfortunately running right through my family, myself included (but looking okay to others).

God's just implanted the men. Think about it - what the fudge is the Adam's Apple used for? If it's crucial for humans, then why don't the females of the species have them as well? It's ISN'T important in the "evolving as a species" thing. Because it's used to TRACK ALL THE MEN OF THE WORLD!!!!
