    I found this picture in the Por Esto from today, the foto is really shocking with 12 mens dead and without heads, but at the top of the foto is a publicity from Burger King!
    What can I say more than: Enjoy your meal!

    Caution very graphic - click at own risk.

    Hmm, I wish I hadn't clicked that.

    (added a bigger warning to your post, I'm not sure too many people will enjoy seeing that pic.)

    Aw, sheesh, Steve!
    You know what the papers are like here - a picture of 10 decapitated heads ain't nuttin'!

    Over the last few years, our two sensationalist rags here - La Razon and El Sol de Tampico - have carried very graphics pics of: a a half-naked whore with her head blown off; a three day old baby, dumped for dead and chewed by feral dogs; three cops lynched by angry locals after they shot a kid who was pitching rocks at them...and more.

    It always surprises me that sites such as rotten.com don't pick up on some of the gorefest pics here.

    Sure, that's true. But we do have a lot of people visit the forum who are not accustomed to such images so a little warning doesnt cause any harm.

    I want to add to Steve's warning. I looked and really regret it. Don't look! I can't believe they print that kind of thing.

    Ugh, I made the mistake of watching a video of the same event. Been having nightmares, what was I thinking?

    (No, I won't post the link, no one needs to see that I don't think).
