It was fine and hot

Another from the Litterbox.

Britain doesn’t have a lot of murder. Well, it didn’t. Cultural enrichment is putting an end to that. But back when all the murderers in England were Englishmen, it was a rare phenomenon.

Rare, but always weird. The Fanny Adams murder is one of the weirdest. The murderer was such an ordinary young man, the act was so awful and his demeanor afterward was so cool.

And then there was the dreadful temporal overlap of the potted mutton.

And they say “evil” isn’t really a thing.

Just wow.

Did they coin the phrase “hangin’s too good for him” for this cat?

Anything like the proverbial ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’?

@JC — Yes (read Stoaty’s article). Somehow, the name of an innocent 8-yr-old little girl, horribly murdered, has come to mean nothing.
