This photo album was donated to The Atlas Group in 2003. It documents a wicked experiment undertaken in 1981 by an extreme right wing militia. The group laced 208 household staples with an unknown tickling substance, and placed the tampered goods in its enemies’ neighborhood shops. This resulted in the "death from laughter" of 6 infants, 2 adolescents and 11 adult, and the hospitalization of 157 people between 1981 and 1983.
