WHY NOT TO STACK DEPENDENT CLAUSES

It appears, from this NYT article, that an accused cannibal has chosen one of his own to defend him:

Harald Ermel, the lawyer for Mr. Miewes, who is serving an eight-and-a-half year sentence for eating a man he met on the Internet, called the film a "slavish re-enactment" of the real-life events and said Mr. Miewes did not give permission to the producer to fictionalize the story.


Lessons:
DO NOT EAT MEN YOU MEET ON THE INTERNET!
DO NOT STACK YOUR DEPENDENT CLAUSES
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT MOVIE RIGHTS WHEN YOU'RE IN JAIL FOR EATING A MAN

LOL
I love bad grammar.
That is, of course, if it IS bad grammar. Perhaps the lawyer enjoys a good meat meal once in a while too! :)

Another use for the lowly parentheses.

Hmmm, would you serve red or white wine with cooked human? I mean, bad enough to be a cannibal, but imagine the social stigma of getting your wines wrong. Must re-watch The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover for pointers.
