“No single tale of Thompson sums up his bizarre sense of humour better than his famed birthday gift to Jack Nicholson. Hunter decided the perfect tribute to his actor pal would be to drive to the top of a creek overlooking Nicholson’s mansion and fire off a few rounds of ammunition while booming out a tape of what Nicholson’s former girlfriend Anjelica Huston described as ‘terrible dying-animal cries.’ Thompson then placed a frozen elk heart on Nicholson’s doormat, causing blood to seep into the star’s living room. Alas, Nicholson had recently been plagued by a stalker. Fearing a Mansonesque slaughter, he alerted the FBI while his terrified family hid in the cellar overnight. ‘I didn’t put two and two together because I didn’t see the elk heart until the following day,’ he said. ‘But the animal noises and the screaming and the beating – I was petrified.
… Undaunted by the poor reception to his gift, Thompson later sent Nicholson’s nine-year-old daughter Lorraine a beautifully-wrapped Christmas present. Inside was a hideously graphic model of a dead rat caught in a trap. Also included was a note which read: ‘Dear Lorraine. This will teach you a lesson about trusting men which will be valuable later in life. You’re welcome, Uncle Hunter.’” source: The Mirror

“One of the first times I met him, he pulled out a gun in the middle of the house. And me, I’m not relaxed in that situation. It was at Monte Chitti’s house, and he was quizzing me: “Anybody who can say what this is… ?” He was holding a round disk that looked like a cross between a hockey puck and an alarm clock, and he was curious if anybody could guess it’s use. It was a pacemaker. That was when he pulled out this gun. Me and a friend of mine jumped out of the window, because guns can go off. I never looked at them any other way than that.” Jack Nicholson on meeting Hunter S. Thompson (via thelovegangster)
