“The mind of man is forever at the service of evil. Here at the Resort, our scientists strive to perfect new and obscenely creative instruments of torturous death. Of course, for many of our guests, the old ways are still the best. Believe me, our ancestors had imaginations that were positively diabolic.”

“Good evening, and welcome back to the Resort Network’s reality show, ‘Positively Diabolic.’ Tonight, Monica, a previous ‘Positively Diabolic’ volunteer, has graciously agreed to demonstrate the latest addition to the North Tower’s diabolically torturous delights, the ‘Hooks of Anguish.’ Of course, Monica’s masochistic eagerness waned when she saw what diabolic horror she’d eagerly volunteered to demonstrate. Thankfully a team of experienced Resort torturers was on hand to gag her and compel her less than enthusiastic participation in tonight’s demonstration.”

“Conceived before World War One by the Ottoman Empire, tonight we will demonstrate the version later perfected by the German Gestapo in the mid-1930s. Suspended by the two curved hooks in each breast, the woman’s weight causes the hooks to sink steadily deeper into her breasts, while the crotch hook supports just enough of her weight to prevent the breast hooks from ripping free of her breasts.”

“Records recovered from the Gestapo archives by the Resort’s researchers confirm that from the mid-1930s until the end of the war in 1945, over a thousand women spent the final torturous hours of their lives hanging from hooks just like these. The women were often left hanging from the hooks after their interrogations were complete, slowly bleeding to death in agony simply for the sadistic amusement of the Nazi guards.”

“Of course, here at ‘Positively Diabolic,’ we strive to provide our viewers with the most authentically brutal presentations of the old ways of torturous death. Therefore, like the Gestapo’s victims, once impaled upon the ‘Hooks of Anguish,’ Monica will be left to slowly bleed to death in agony for our audience’s amusement. We’re hoping that she has the stamina to last well into the morning. Such a woman’s brutally torturous death, one this unspeakably diabolic, should be something to be truly savored...
