With threatening/conspiring to kill and eat people all the rage these days, it may seem like a slick come-on to tell a girl you want to cut her up and cook her. But alas, even the best-intentioned courting moves can go awry, and a Staten Island teenager was arrested this week for allegedly sending a female classmate emails saying he wanted to do just that.
According to a criminal complaint obtained by SI Advance, 16-year-old David Liu, a student and wrestler at the Michael J. Petrides School in Staten Island, sent a fellow 16-year-old student four emails alleging he wanted to eat her. "Hello, I think you are delicious and tasty. I like to eat people, particularly girls. You are the chosen few," one of the emails allegedly read. Another, according to the complaint, was a "step-by-step guide on how to break down the human body from the full figure into serviceable choice cuts of meat," as per Liu's alleged email to the unnamed victim.
Liu, who was arrested on Thursday, was charged with child endangerment and likely faces disciplinary action from the school. He says the ladies just don't get his sense of humor. "I knew it was probably weird and stalkerish. I know my sense of humor is evil, but many things I think about are," he allegedly told his assistant principal when confronted about the emails. "People, just don't get my sense of humor. I have been watching a bazillion prank shows." Is sexting no longer in with the youths?
