Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
There's a new perfume on the block and it's supposed to conjure up images of blood.
Blood Concept, also known as blood type perfume, will hit the market in September, with each of the four metallic, earthy scents representing a unique blood type.
The reason I tell you this is not because the scents contain actual human blood (that's illegal), but because it points to a larger legal question:
Are vampires the new pirates and ninjas?
Now, now, hear me out.
For a while, there were constant reports about pirates (often Somalian) taking prisoners and boats captive and demanding ransoms of variable sums. The U.S. even prosecuted a few in New York--the first in two hundred years.
The ninjas even got in on the crime game, endangering children everywhere.
As of late, vampires have been showing up in crime blotters across the country. In fact, the apparent trend is so widespread that it transcends gender and generations.
Given this new blood type perfume, the new season of True Blood, and the soon-to-be-released final installment of the Twilight Saga, one can only expect that vampire attacks will increase exponentially over the next year.
Taking all of this evidence into consideration, I think it's safe to say that vampires are the newest legal trend, and they definitely provide more amusement than ninjas or pirates.
