Alleged Moscow markets in everything

Yet even they have nothing on the Moscow chef who killed his father-in-law and then allegedly served him to customers at his restaurant. According to police, the 54-year-old chef at the unnamed restaurant, well-known for its chebureki, or big meat-filled pastries, killed his 82-year-old father-in-law during a drunken brawl. Police refused to confirm or deny a report by tabloid Life News that the chef then ran his father-in-law’s body through a meat grinder in order to fill his chebureki – and serve them to customers for three days before being caught and sent to a psychiatric institution.

Here is more, oddly the article is on a different topic altogether, namely dealing with the snow in Moscow.  For the pointer I thank Chug Roberts.

Life mimics fiction:

“The Green Butchers” Danish film by Anders Thomas Jensen with the excellent Mads Mikkelsen in it:

The Green Butchers? Oh, please. Sweeney Todd!

So long as it’s not the khinkalnaya across the street from the Central Bank, it’s all good

He may have inadvertently stumbled upon a solution to impending demographic crises, and food shortages to boot. The Russian twist: Soylent red?!

‘Alleged’ is right. Life News is known for printing totally untrue and patently absurd stories.

I’m sorry but that story was stupid, even beyond the implausible chebureki story. (If it was claimed that that they were filled w/ canned cat food I might believe it, though. Some I ate were lucky if they were that good.) What was stupid is that, while the snow might be a surprise to a rather silly journalist, it’s not to a Russian. The author either is a novice or else just loves those “things here are so weird!” stories (that is, is lazy.)
