Varg Vikernes Arrested In France On Suspicion Of Flushing Oranges Down Toilet


In the early hours of the morning on Saturday, black metal legend and media icon Varg Vikernes was arrested by French police on suspicion of being the mastermind of a devious plot to cause mayhem in France.  Vikernes, who was staying at  L’Hotel Aisselle in Paris, purchased a bag of oranges and flushed one down the hotel’s toilet “in the name of Odin”.  The event, which led to Vikernes’ arrest and incarceration, caused him to be immediately suspended as host of the top rated Norwegian children’s television show “This Little Quisling”.

By flushing the oranges, Varg hoped to destroy the hotel’s plumbing causing untold confusion and panic in the city, eventually leading to the collapse of the French government.  In the ensuing chaos, the government would be replaced by a proto-fascist black metal dictatorship.  After the first orange was flushed, Vikernes was captured by an alert member of the hotel’s maintenance staff and detained until French police arrived.  During a 47-hour interrogation, Vikernes revealed he was planning an orange flushing spree throughout the city of Paris that would “rival the German invasion of France in the 1950’s”.


Vikernes is no stranger to controversy.  Back in 1992, he was arrested in Trondheim for feeding seagulls Alka-Seltzer in an attempt to cause them to explode.  During a 1993 sleepover, Varg was accused of putting warm water in Mayhem vocalist Attila Csihar’s hand in an attempt to cause him to wet his bed.  Charges in both cases were dropped for lack of evidence, but in 1994, Varg was given six months in prison for putting a whoopee cushion on the chair of Trondheim mayor Marvin Wiseth’s chair during a press conference moments before he sat down.

While in prison, Vikernes dreamed up the musical project he’d be best known for, Burzum.  Using a diabolical mixture of raw black metal and elevator music, Vikernes’ has inspired a generation of talented, potentially employable young people to pursue careers in creating poorly produced, inaudible music for almost no one.  His music, which is both deeply personal and horribly unlistenable (much like the poetry of an alienated, disaffected 6th grader), pays homage to Varg’s two greatest influences, Adolf Hitler and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The threat of oranges being flushed down the toilet is not only considered a major concern in France.  In an effort to protect Americans from dangerous orange flushing related activities, the US government today banned all oranges from domestic and international flights, wiretapped the phones of twelve Carmelite nuns in Arizona suspected of “orange-growing activities” and used drones to attack a village in Pakistan.

    Hitler + Webber… that is the ONLY logical explanation for that “Dirty Boulders” album that Casio’d its was from behind prison walls to everywhere fine Burzum albums were sold…

    I oppose orange flushing … categorically. Even those cute holiday oranges.

      Oranges flushing – yes, I’ve seen some oranges with reddish hues.

    Can black metal be detected using a black metal detector? Is raw black metal more palatable when cooked? Can raw black metal be smelted? If so, what can it be used for? Is it used in processed cheese? Is black metal anything like dark matter? Is black metal to be found in black holes? Is the Rolling Stones song “Paint it Black” a surreptitious reference to the use of black metal in place of lead in certain paints used by the United States Forces deployed in Vietnam? Do evil scientists use black metal in place of graphite in their pencils? Was black metal used in the top secret Apollo 18.5 – 25 launches to the dark side of the moon as reflected in the Pink Floyd album “Dark Side of the Moon,” and how it reflected the current geo-political Weltpolitik versus the Realpolitik vis-a-vis the United States space program and the Soviet counterpart?

      Black Metal is pure nothing given sonic form. You, soulless, are handed a soul for the Universe to crush, and it isn’t even laughing. Pure Black Metal can also be used as a substitute in recipes calling for butter. Unfortunately, Raw Black Metal, is tainted with fino-Ohm Chan tensors and is unusable to solve the Bi-rhythmic Isomo-pinion equations.

        So it is used in the space/time union of black holes?

        Only when alloyed with J-pop.

      I died of laughter. This is like a mixture of Monty Python and cubist paintings. By the way, why didn’t you mention the Catchsnack (Count Grishnack & Marie Cachet) pairing?

        “A mixture of Monty Python and cubist paintings” That’s going on my tombstone.

        I haven’t paid enough attention to Marie to have an opinion on her, except is she’s married to Varg, she must have great taste in men.
