“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.
