There are three groups of people you never mess with. The IRS, women that weigh more than you do, and Mexican drug cartels. Guess which one decided to stitch an enemy’s face to a soccer ball? Here’s a hint: the IRS hates soccer.

The body of 36-year-old Hugo Hernandez was left on the streets of Los Mochis in seven pieces as a chilling threat to members of the Juarez drug cartel. A note read: “Happy New Year, because this will be your last.” To drive home the point, the assailants skinned Hernandez’s face and stitched it onto a soccer ball.

The gruesome find, confirmed Friday by Sinaloa state prosecutors, represents a new level of brutality in Mexico’s drug war, in which torture and beheadings are almost daily occurrences. –Examiner, via Real Talk NY.

Yeah, so that’s really more of a World News type of story, except for the soccer ball, which totally makes it relevant to sports. And if you correctly identified Bruce Jenner as the face on the soccer ball, give yourself five points. No, we’re not really keeping score here. I’m just trying to help you feel better about yourself.
