Men in North Korea used to be able to style their hair in 10 different ways, now they can choose only one, that of their leader Kim Jong-Un.

Well, according to Mark Edwards—a 44-year old man who often dressed in a werewolf costume and role-played sword and gun fights with scantily dressed teenage girls in the woods—it’s “a world wide secret organization of Werewolves, Vampires, Werecats or Hell cats, and Hybrid humans that work together to protect the human race from the evil of demons and other evil vampires or werewolves.” Edwards went on the run with one of his underage playmates who he was grooming for the slayer covenant, and is now on $500,000 bond in Ohio.
