Soylent Green Is Peruvians!

Or should I say “Soy lent verde”

(CNN) — Peruvian authorities say they have arrested four members of a gang that specialized in selling fat obtained from dead humans.

Officials are investigating the disappearance of at least 60 people who may have been killed by gang members in two mountainous states in central Peru, the nation’s attorney general said in a release Wednesday.

The four suspects have been charged with murder.

Two of the suspects were arrested November 3 as they left a transport business with a plastic container with human fat in it.

The fat was sold in Peru and Europe and used for commercial purposes, Peruvian officials said.

“Commercial purposes”?


Ick ick ick.

  2. Glad they didn’t tallow this to continue, it would render everybody there unsafe. I wonder if the families can file suet.

    We will shortly learn that this is a hoax.

    There was a “Boston Legal” episode where Denny Craig was arrested for selling human fat overseas as biofuel… schmaybe the Peruvians saw it and thought, “Porque no?”
