A chain of restaurants over in Britain named "Sweeny Todd's" that specializes
in meat pies. (No, I didn't eat there. I had enough trouble with a meat-pie
encounter in the Bath train station.) For those of you unfamiliar with the
reference, Sweeny Todd is the "protagonist" in a twentieth century opera of
that name. The subtitle is "Demon Barber of Fleet Street." He was a
slice-and-dice specialist who got rid of the bodies by supplying his girl
friend with "meat" for her pie stall. Now you know why I won't eat there.
