News, but not the serious kind
Want some kaBob? Some kaDave?
Blog Guy, I’m planning a trip to Russia soon and as a hotshot travel writer you know a lot about different cuisines. So like, in Moscow, is there anything I should avoid?
Gosh, if you can’t trust a cheap kebab house in Moscow, what CAN you trust? Any special reason to avoid them?
Only that Russian police have arrested three homeless people suspected of eating a 25-year-old man they had butchered, and selling other bits of the corpse to a local kebab house.
Oh. But apart from that, no there’s no other problem with kebab houses there?
Uh, not apart from that human meat aspect, no. Knock yourself out.
