Happy FrrriiiIIIIidaaayyy…

That doesn’t really sound scary does it? Oh well.

Friday Links time!

» The Picky Glutton: Human meat – Wesker and Son butchers at Smithfield Market

Note: not for the squeamish, and certainly not for squeamish vegetarians.
Just in time for Hallowe’en, this British butcher shop has created pretty realistic-looking creations from pork and beef that resemble a dismembered human body.
Ghoulish but also pretty creative.
