The Inspector: Smell of Death, Live Rats, and Roach Legs
|art by Alex Izaguirre|
Luckily most of us don't have to bear witness to these images of living disgustitude.
On the other hand, we might be consuming the results of their creeping and crawling every time we sit down to eat at a restaurant.
Here are eight establishments that health inspectors saw fit to place emergency closure orders on in the month of May.
By the way, "qué asco" means "how disgusting!" in español.
