Der Menschschnitzel

This news story out of Germany is Steven King-esque in its grossness:


A German accused of killing and eating a man he met on a website for cannibals has expressed regret for his actions. Mr Meiwes, from Rotenburg, says his victim was a willing participant who ate part of his own body before Mr Meiwes stabbed him to death and stored his remains in a freezer.

The cannibal in question apparently ran an ad on a website seeking ‘young, well-built men aged 18 to 30 to slaughter’. There are several bad jokes to be made here, but I can’t bring myself to write them down.
