Oh, HUMAN feet. I was going to say chicken feet are apparently a popular snack food in China, kind of like wings in the US. But I guess human feet are a different matter.

The graphic contest warning in the op is a little useless since it comes after the picture.

Quote:
Police and food standards officials inspected the restaurant and found 55lbs of meat and frozen fish of doubtful origin.
Isn't a lot of meat going to be "of doubtful origin" once it has been butchered? At the restaurants I worked at, meat was taken out of the labeled boxes and defrosted in unlabeled plastic bags. That might be considered doubtful since it has no label.

Maybe it was a rump roast with a prehensile tail.
