I wasn't able to find the origianl thread, but wanted to post this update about everyone's favorite German cannibal:


Famed Cannibal Inspires Feature Film
BERLIN (Reuters) - Armin Meiwes, the German cannibal who gained global notoriety for eating a willing victim, is being immortalized in a movie by a gay filmmaker, and hardly surprisingly, the project is already running into controversy.
The film, whose working title is ''Your Heart in My Brain,'' has received 20,000 euros ($24,580) in public funding from a regional film foundation in North Rhine-Westphalia, the western state ruled by Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder's Social Democrats.
Meiwes was sentenced in January to eight and a half years in jail for manslaughter after a trial whose gory details riveted Germany.
He admitted killing a Berlin computer specialist he met via the Internet, but was spared a murder verdict as the victim had asked to be eaten in a startling case of sexual fetishism.
Meiwes recorded the deed on video tape and shocked the court with his matter-of-fact account of how he severed the man's penis at the latter's request, and how they both tried to eat it, first raw and then fried in a saucepan.

Why is it called "Your Heart in my Brain" ? :confused:
"Your Penis in my Stomach" sounds more accurate . . .

What a messed up world this can be. :(
