People, Can We Stop Eating Each Other Now?

Posted By on Fri, Jun 1, 2012 at 10:00 AM

We seem to be on the verge of a cannibalism epidemic here, people.

It started in Florida, with the widely reported story of one man, suspected to be high on bath salts, eating the face of another man.

Yesterday, a man in Maryland was arrested for killing and eating parts of a man "who lived in the same home."

During their search, police reportedly retrieved the head and hands. When they interviewed the suspect, he told them he cut up the victim with a knife and cannibalized the heart and portions of the brain, reports CBS Baltimore.

Thankfully(?), the cannibalism madness isn't contained to just the U.S.

In story published yesterday in Sweden, a man was arrested for cutting off his wife's lips and eating them.

According to Aftonbladet, the researcher has admitted to cutting off his wife's lips in retaliation for a supposed love affair.

"It was honour related. He doesn't seem to regret a thing; he believes she insulted him," a source with knowledge of the matter told the paper.

Eugh. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go start consuming the most bitter foods I can on the off-chance someone tries to consume my flesh — if they're going to eat me, they're not going to enjoy it, dammit.
