“Daddy, is he one of our relatives?”
If there was anyone who used his talents to maximum effect, that might be serial killer Ted Bundy.
Handsome, charismatic and a good actor/faker, Bundy could have easily become a popular politician AND a serial killer. Instead, he decided to specialize and take the easy road, since necrophilia is less morally offensive than what politicians do every day. He also would have made a good magician as he was excellent at escaping whenever he was caught.
He drove around in a VW Beetle with "Ride and die" on its side with a "serial killer on board" sign in the window, yet young women were still always happy to hitch a ride with Bundy. This was even after seeing the blood-spattered interior and severed heads rolling around on the back seat: "Hey, is that Emily? She owes me $20."
