Former Colleague Recounts Marc Headley’s “Evilly-Intended” Joke

A former colleague gives an account of Marc Headley’s cruel “pranks,” intended solely to cause upset and revulsion.


I know Marc Headley to be an evilly-intended joker.

One day I was walking down the hallway of the studio and he approached me, smile on his face, “Hey, would you like a cup of coffee?” I said, “Sure.” He handed me a cup of coffee with a dead rat inside. Like, he had actually taken the time to pull the rat’s tail through the lid on the coffee cup. And of course I was completely horrified by this and he thought it was completely funny and was laughing hysterically at me.

One day he offered me some crackers. I think I ate about four of them. After I ate them, he started laughing and I was like, “What?” And he’s like, “Well, didn’t you notice?” And I’m like, “Notice what?” He had licked the salt off every single cracker before putting it back in the package and offering them to me, and he thought it was completely hysterical. And of course I was completely grossed out. And that’s Marc Headley.
