And Britain's Worst Fast Food Nightmare

Rat: It's What's For Dinner

From today forward, whenever I'm worrying about the questionable sanitation practices of my local restaurants and fast food chains, I'll only have to remember today's breaking story of the Wolverhampton Pappu Sweet Center. The owner was discovered by police broiling up some kebabs while the corpse of one of his employees lay on a couch nearby.

But that's not even the worst of it. The story contains all the characteristics of good drama: Man vs. Animal, Man vs. The Elements: A dead rat found under a cooking pot, a smelly piece of meat dripping blood and clotted with flies. I only wish the BBC had gotten some reaction shots from former customers before police shut the place down.
