Remember that plot against Justin Bieber? You know, the one where two guys planned to kidnap, castrate and murder him at one of his Madison Square Garden gugs last year? Well the phone call where the two crooks discuss the plans has been released and my is it not a pretty read, especially at this time of the morning. You've been warned.

Convicted criminal Dana Martin's conversation with hit man Tanner Ruane has been made public, in which the two psychos plot to kidnap the 18-year-old, castrate and strangle him, and then place a $2,500 bounty on each of Justin's testicles. Obtained by a news station KOAT 7 News in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the call was made from a Las Cruces prison last November - where Dana is serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl - and he can be heard going over the plan to kidnap Bieber and his bodyguard with hit man Tanner Ruane as well as discussing a third accomplice in the plot, former inmate Mark Staake, who was allegedly roped in to execute the murder.

Tanner - who is currently being investigated for conspiracy - can be heard saying: 'The way I work, dude, is I like to know as little as possible. [Mark]'s going to use one of the things you gave him to get him out of this, he's gonna go take care of it.We went and we bought some hedge clippers. You're gonna give me five large for each one I get.'

Dana replies: 'He's gonna kill the pitbulls and then you're gonna castrate them.' Now TMZ are reporting 'pitbulls' was the code word for the Beebs and his security and the plan was to strike in New York when Justin was performing at Madison Square Garden and strangle the teen idol with a paisley tie, but only after they had removed his genitals with garden shears.

Dana then goes on to explain how to best kill Justin using his signature move, saying: 'Tie it really, really tight. Knot it in the front once, really tight, put it in a knot. That cuts off the oxygen, and then tie it in the back again, really tight. That seals the deal.' Pleasant stuff on a Wednesday morning, isn't it?
