French Bread Spiked With LSD In CIA Experiment

United States 7

Have you ever wanted to secretively spike an entire community's food supply with psychoactive drugs and see what happens? If so, then you should have joined the CIA in 1951. H .P. Albarelli Jr., an investigative journalist, claims that a sudden outbreak of mass insanity and hallucinations in the French town of Pont-Saint-Esprit 50 years ago was part of a CIA experiment with LSD, and not caused by flour contaminated with ergot as had been theorized. The brown bread that is circulating around us is not, specifically, too good. It's suggested that you do stay away from that.

If this doesn't get turned into an episode of American Dad then Seth MacFarlane should quit the business.

Oh, and the French can still suck it.

You know, if the CIA had just brought in some good bands and some colorful lighting, this experiment might have turned out differently.

I don't wonder. People always loath the top dog. When we are no longer on top (which is rapidly approaching), they will find someone else to hate.
