A Wolverhampton fast food shop owner is out of the kebab business after he was busted preparing the traditional English dish while a corpse lay on a nearby sofa. Environmental health officers had been keeping an eye on Jaswinder Singh, 45, and his Pappu Sweet Centre since October 2007, the BBC explains. On 27 August, a police …
Kebab ingredients anyone?
(Taskes like missing chicken?)
"how the corpse came to be"
By eating the food at Pappu's, no doubt.
Mine's the one with the foul smelling liquid leaking from the pocket.
Smoking in the kitchen! Disgusting.
/Mines the one with the severed hand in the pocket.
Maybe he had a card indicating he wanted to be a doner?
A dead person on the couch...
Officer says: This your body?
Mr Singh says: Yep.
Officer says: Well, going to have hand you hygiene fine then!
All seems very strange to me.
Well, at least the kebab is properly attributed to the English. What the Turkish call a kebab isn't anything like the greasy slivers of fat and e. coli you get on these shores.
Mines the severed hand.
Guy was just...
waiting to be served obviously!
I misread it
It was too easy to mis-read "Bloke knocked up kebabs"... I thought it was another of those sexual deviancy articles!
Could've been worse
The corpse didn't have any missing "appendages" did it?
Still, I suppose the neighbourhood cats were safe for the night.
Made me wonder...
... why that last kebab I had tasted a little bit like real meat. I think I need to honk up.
STOP! because kebabs are full of saturated fats and you'll probably die on your sofa if you eat too many.
Seconded! How is one to enjoy the olfactory pleasures provided by the thawed meat + corpse concoction if the bastard stinks the place up with this nasty habit enjoyed by pedophiles and terrorists around the world? I bet it is not good for the flies either. Simply disgusting.
Shades of Fawlty Towers?
Kebab and the Corpse........
Mine's the one with "Health Inspector" on the back.
So it's not just
Soylent Green that's people. It's kebabs as well.
Why didn't they try to bang him up (the live one that is)
cos he'd be dead meat inside......
when this happened in Fawlty Towers.
Mine's the one with flies swarming round it.
Don't buy food from a "third world brown-type".
The stiff was going to be the next kebab?
You racist pig!
Shame you were not the chap who was the contents of the sofa-kebab. We could do without you 'first world racist-types' in this world spreading your misguided poorly educated illegal views.
Meat - £2
Named Meat - £4
I wonder if he was having trouble in this economic crisis of being unable to make both ends meat.
And so on and so forth....
@ Dead Man
Nice work sir, nice work.
"a large number of flies in the room which were landing on food", an "awful smell", "thawing meat which was oozing blood and covered in flies", and a man "smoking and spitting on the filthy floor"
IT'S A KEBAB SHOP!
They're all like this, everybody knows these shops are about as hygienic as a toilet, but they still buy kebabs from them as they are drunk!
@ The stiff was going to be the next kebab?
Nope, just a doner.
After a wipe down with a bit of disinfectionide, the shop can open again and nobody will remember or know the reason.
Then the gumfluff will degenerate and the swing will come back. The only way to treat these people is put them in gaol where they can cook for the inmates.
@ Alistair Burns
give yourself a gold star - that was a moment of pure genius, i hope you feel smug. coffee, monitor, etc etc.
Worst EVER, huh...?
...worse even than the kitchen of horrors uncovered at the infamous Whizzo Chocolate Company?
...uh, yeah, that one, with the half-eaten Crunchy Frog in the pocket.
Soylent Green is made of kebabs!!!!, Soylent Green is made of kebabs!!!!
No big deal
This is consistent with the poor food quality found in most British eateries these days.
Move along, nothing to see here!
@AC re Moral
Missed the joke icon, did we? Should've gone to Specsavers.
He was still in business with THAT level of hygiene and with a corpse in the shop?! Those kebabs must have been delicious, I want one!!!
When's he opening again?
I don't understand.
Sounds like most of the cheaper food outlets here in China. (Mostly excluding the human corpse).
This fellow would be right at home here. He'd only be banged up if he forgot to pay his 'fee' to the local officials.
The spitting wasnt even mentioned in the fine.
I think this shop should recieve a NU-Labor award for helping the community recycle more organic waste!!
...I guess you have to be American to get that... never mind...
OK, so we know what happened to the *second* body then..
Did someone check the corpse's passport ? It is a legal requirement to declare the origin of the meat..
Mine's the one with the cleaver in the pocket.
...'cos she knows a thing or two about kebabs.
Doesn't matter if you put a joke icon there when what you say isn't in any way amusing:
<joke> you're a racist twat </joke>
still not really very funny.
