Oh My Squash!

It was recently verified that a hollowed out squash contains DNA of the beheaded French King, Louis XVI. When Louis XVI was beheaded during the French Revolution a number of observers dipped their handkerchiefs into the spilt blood. One participant in this oddity, Maximilien Bourdaloue, decided to put his hanky inside of a squash and then embellish it. Logical move...



"On January 21, Maximilien Bourdaloue dipped his handkerchief in the blood of Louis XVI after his decapitation."
