France’s “Hannibal Lecter” said Wednesday a sexual urge drove him to kill his cellmate and “curiosity” about the taste of human flesh led him to cook and eat a lung he ripped out of the corpse.  He said he flew into an “uncontrollable” rage after his victim gave him a “dirty look” on January 2, 2007 after he ordered him to wash his hands after using the toilet in the tiny cell they shared with a third inmate in Rouen.

He said that after pummelling his victim, he took a pair of scissors and plunged it into his back, neck and chest a dozen times before holding a plastic bag over his head “for five minutes” to make sure he was dead. Then he decided to eat Baudry’s heart for his evening meal. “I take a razor blade and I open his chest. I plunge my hand in and I take out what I think is the heart but which in fact is a piece of lung, which I put into a Tupperware container,” he told a transfixed courtroom. “I did it out of curiosity to see what it was like to eat human flesh,” said Cocaign.

“What is terrible is that it (the lung) was good,” Cocaign told him, according to his testimony. “It has the taste of venison. It is tender. What I did I liked doing.”  “No one was listening to me,” the detainee said. “I took action, and then they took me seriously.”

Totally crazy and a nut-case!  This guy needs to be put in solidarity confinement for the rest of his life.

Crazy, Weird Urinal

weird urinalNot sure what is more strange, this story or the fact that there is a restaurant name that combines the term ‘honest’ and ‘lawyer’ together!

A urinal shaped like a woman’s wide-open mouth has been flushed out of the men’s room of a Hamilton eatery following a nearly year-long public outcry.

The glossy, red-lipped loo at The Honest Lawyer restaurant sparked a letter writing campaign that attracted almost 1,100 people, including Ontario’s NDP leader and Hamilton’s mayor.

Some people argued the “Kisses! urinal” — manufactured by Bathroom Mania! in the Netherlands — was art or just a joke.

The Woman Abuse Working Group, a coalition of 24 organizations, disagreed and led efforts to oust what it considered to be an offensive water closet. Lenore Lukasik-Foss, chairwoman of the group, said Monday she’s “shocked, excited and thrilled” that it’s gone. “It’s not a joke to pee into a woman’s mouth,” she said. The group was concerned about women’s safety and the message the urinal, which had been there since the restaurant opened in February 2007, sent to men in the bar.

“They’re drinking and maybe hoping to connect with a special person and then they’re going to the bathroom and peeing into a woman’s mouth,” said Lukasik-Foss, who’s also director of the Sex Assault Centre. “Granted it’s sort of a cartoonish version, but still it’s clearly a woman’s mouth.”

Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, who had sent a letter to owner Greg Sandwell asking him to consider the outcry from women’s groups, said she was pleased it had been removed. “It was something that was causing a great deal of concern around the Hamilton area,” said Horwath, who represents the riding in which the restaurant is located.

“I’ve been to the Honest Lawyer with many different people, including men, and nobody ever gave me the heads up.” Sandwell could not immediately be reached for comment. On its website, the manufacturer says “‘Kisses!’ transforms a daily event into a blushing experience.” It also adds: “This is one target men will never miss.”

Meike van Schijndel said in an email from Holland that she devised the design for an art school project, and lots of men and women like the “cartoonish looking mouth.”

“The thought that this urinal only represents a man peeing in a woman’s mouth never even occurred to me while making it,” said van Schijndel, who added interpretation of her work lies in people’s imaginations. “Luckily for all those women who feel offended, they will never run into a ‘Kisses’ at a restroom.”

While the designer defends the urinals as sensual art, a complaint led a McDonald’s outlet in The Netherlands to remove them in 2006. The complainant was an American who saw her work in a magazine, not in real life, said van Schijndel.

The designer said a “bad” copy of her work was removed from a public washroom near Austria’s national opera in Vienna in 2006 after complaints from politicians. In 2004, Virgin Airways apologized and ditched plans to install a pair at its lounge at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport after the National Organization for Women called them “degrading.”
