Keu Quote: The grisly discovery was made by customs officials as they made a routine inspection of a shipment of synthetic hair at the docks.

First not to read the article.

*goes to check my recent wig purchase to make sure it isn't made of rat heads*

If Siouxie gets a story posted about a case of ratheads being found somewhere, I'm outta here.

rat heads, rat heads, chewy, gooey, rat heads, eat em up, eat em up, YUM!

Hundreds of rat corpses - which had been smoked to improve their flavour

If you believe that then you also believe you seat cushion can be used as a flotation device.

BTW does anyone remember B. Kliban and his cat cartoons?
Love to eat them mousies,
mousies what I love to eat.
Bite they little heads off,
nibble on they tiny feet.

If I had two dead rats I'd give you one.

Meanie, already posted by someone else. Rat head found in Hospital food. 'member??

They're slowly getting around, those little suckers.

oh and...give it up for: The Headless Rats!

"The giant cane rats, which had been smoked prior to shipping, arrived in a shipment from Ghana and are considered a delicacy in the country."
So some people got high smoking rats and then put them in a crate they thought was an ashtray?

Smoked Rate WBAGNFARB.

Better rats than cats, I always say...

... ah, if the rats are considered a delicacy in Ghana ... what are they doing in London?




Has no one here ever heard of ratatouille?
