Charles Manson. Mad as a box of frogs...

Mad bastard Charles Manson has written a bizarre letter to Marilyn Manson from prison.

Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner) came up with his stage name by combining the monikers of actress Marilyn Monroe and infamous convicted mass murderer Charles Manson. The two names were chosen by Marilyn Manson because he felt that the pair were the two biggest icons of the 1960s.

There's a screenshot of Charlie's crazy letter below and if you can make head or tail of it, congratulations on gaining a degree in Madbastardness.

Here's a transcript of the letter:

"To Marilyn Manson –

"It's taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play – you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he's got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I'm SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got.

"It's a far out balance. Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don't do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don't need, it's not a need or a want. Couped – coup.

"Ghost dancers slay together and you're just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That's 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007.

"Charles Manson"

Marilyn Manson has not responded to the letter yet, as far as we know. He's probably still trying to work out what the loony's insane ramblings mean.

Charles Manson's handwritten letter to Marilyn Manson...

Charles Manson led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in California in the late 1960s. He was found guilty of conspiracy to commit the murders of Sharon Tate and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca carried out by members of the group at his instruction.

Midway through the penalty phase of his murder trial in April 1971, Manson shaved his head and trimmed his beard to a fork; he told the press, "I am the Devil, and the Devil always has a bald head."

Manson, now 77, was sentenced to death but that was commuted to life imprisonment a year later and he has been in jail ever since.
