Although you may be bored of hearing details of white collar crimes, this story should interest even the most jaded news hounds. David Brooks, former CEO of a body armor company, is on trial for stock fraud, insider trading and using company funds to pay for lavish personal items such as cosmetic surgery for his wife, prostitutes for his staff, and a $100,000 belt buckle. At least some of this money was yours. That is, Mr. Brooks’ body armor company had military contracts and so taxpayer money was used to buy body armor from him for troops overseas as well as local police.
But of course, if you are cooking the books at your company, you have to find some way to deal with the money men – the people in charge of making sure your books are straight. Specifically of concern to Mr. Brooks was his CFO, Dawn Schlegel.
So Mr. Brooks came up with an ingenious idea: Get the vet who looks after his racehorses to invent a memory erasing pill! Said pill could then be slipped into Ms. Schlegel’s drink and voila – she knows nuffink about any funny math on the company books. An excellent and foolproof plan with only one drawback: There is no such thing as a memory erasing pill.
And so Mr. Brooks sat and listened this year as Ms. Schlegel, her memory apparently intact and keen, spent 23 days testifying against him[...]
I wish I could afford a stable of racehorses and a vet to take care of them. I’d tell that vet to invent a pill that could make me immune to government control by such evil things as bar codes and the census.

So how does this grab you?
Twelve bottles of The End Of History ale have been made and placed inside seven dead stoats, four squirrels and one hare.
Before you make up your mind, consider these words from the brewer’s co-founder:
”The impact of The End Of History is a perfect conceptual marriage between taxidermy, art and craft brewing. The bottles are at once beautiful and disturbing – they disrupt conventions and break taboos, just like the beer they hold within them.”
“The animals used to bottle The End Of History all died of natural causes – better to be celebrated and valued than left to rot.”
