490. Monsters Like Mortuary Artillery
Yes, you read that correctly. In other words, coffin torpedoes.
We didn’t make that up. They were very real. First patented in 1878.
In fact, if you feared weird, Victorian body snatchers coming for your corpse in the middle of the night for professorial experiments before your Lord and Savior could take your mortal remains to paradise, you’d probably buy a coffin torpedo too.
You try to steal my body. I blow you up. It’s a beautiful exchange.
Hopefully, someday, coffin torpedoes will return.
Until then, happy grave robbing.
