“Did you hear about the cannibal policeman who was arrested for grilling his suspects?”

Policemen give suspects a “grilling,” but that’s usually not literal. “Did you hear about the cannibal policeman who was arrested? He was caught grilling his suspects” was printed in The Patriot Ledger (Quincy, MA) by Richard Lederer on September 25, 1999.


25 September 1999, The Patriot Ledger (Quincy, MA), “Looking at language / Eating up cannibal puns” by Richard Lederer, pg. 41:
Did you hear about the cannibal policeman who was arrested? He was caught grilling his suspects.
