Way to hell. Photos of the most profane found graffiti you can imagine collected in a hollowed-out hymn book.

These 63 bibles, psalm books and sacred literature were found in the dumpster at the Salvation Army headquarters in Stockholm. I mean, we are not religious or anything, but to throw away these holy books seemed like a waste of paper even to us. So naturally we climbed inside the dumpster and rescued the books and biked them home to safety.
