The economy is bad, for sure. But did you know that the global recession has forced Serb textile workers to use cannibalism as a protest?
"We, the workers have nothing to eat, we had to seek some sort of alternative food and I gave them an example," Zoran Bulatovic told Reuters. "It hurt like hell."
It hurt, because Bulatovic chopped his finger off to make the point and to prevent one of his underlings, "a single mother of three," from doing the deed herself. Bulatovic, you see, wanted to be a gentleman about it. "[She was] the first to say she would cut off her finger. I could not allow her to do that."
Somehow this Serbian cannibalism business is really getting legs, or more accuretly: feet.
You see, in February, a Ms. Radmila Stojadinovic, resident of Lucica, Serbia reportedly ate her sister's foot after "sleeping on her dead body for a month." Apparetnly, "When the police came to see Radmila, she was very weak, had soot on her face and 10-centimeter fingernails," according to the Kurir Daily.
Poor cops. That is definetly going to require a session with the police psychologist.
