We’re talking about the most efficient way to remove one’s head from your body: The guillotine! Did they invent the guillotine because there were so many people to kill? Or was the invention of the guillotine just a way to make it easier to condemn more people to death?

You probably won’t find that out by listening to this episode, but you will have fun when Sandwich, Mells Bells and Acadia tell each other about the French Revolution, kids beheading rats and some guy who let the government throw people down the hill in his backyard.

The videos below, although old and in black and white, contain footage of an actual death by guillotine execution. Please proceed with caution.
