waterboarding

You guys, this was highly upsetting. Mr Bugg looks awful, and Mrs Bugg’s smile is chilling. I really hope the buggs still using this practice are captured and made to stop it.

Transcript:

Mrs Bugg is pouring a bucket of water over the head of Mr Bugg, which is covered by some sort of cloth bag or mask. He is on a table that slopes downward in the direction of his head, and his arms and legs are waving madly. He is clearly having a VERY rough time of things.

The text reads: “Aprovul 26, 1564: Playwright William Buggspeare is baptized in Stratford-upon-Bugg. Years later this practice would be outlawed as torture. Some Bugg religions still practice it in secret.”
