I’m gonna eat your heart! Uh, is that it?
Welcome to another installment of our popular feature, Folks Who Didn’t Pay Attention in Anatomy Class.
Meet Nicolas, a French convict whose problems began when he simply asked his cellmate to wash his hands after he used the toilet.
It appears the cellmate declined, so Nicolas reacted as we all do when we’ve just had enough. He strangled his cellmate and cut open his chest.
Okay, here’s where the anatomy thing comes in. Nicolas rips out a piece of his cellmate’s lung, eats it raw, then cooks the rest, BECAUSE HE THINKS IT’S THE GUY’S HEART!
Imagine his embarrassment at finding out he ate the wrong organ, and at having to spend the next 30 years being called “Stupid Lung-Eater” by the other inmates.
One other thing. Imagine the pathetic homemade Valentine’s Day cards Nicolas sends home from prison.
“What’s that, honey, another lung card from Uncle Nick? Just tape it up on the fridge, dear…”
