Saw this story on Yahoo News: “The drummer with legendary rock band AC/DC, Phil Rudd, was accused Thursday of trying to hire a hitman to kill two men after police raided his luxury New Zealand home.” Wait, trying to hire a hitman? So how does someone hire a hitman anyway? Do you advertise? Do you check out Yelp, Angie’s List, craigslist, or the services offered section of local newspapers? Maybe you could go to seedy bars in rough neighborhoods and say to the bartender, “Pardon me, but you know where a bloke might be able to get in contact with a hitman?” You probably wouldn’t use that line unless you wanted to be the target at that very moment.
Maybe you put the word out on your social media sites. Let your Facebook Friends or blog and Instagram followers know. You could check out expertise with your Linkedin connections. Who knows? Obviously Rudd doesn’t. I want to end with something flip here. Something like, “freakin’ amateurs.” But the mind-boggling absurdity of the thing is just too much.
