What two Russian teenagers allegedly did last week makes the Norwegians who stole the head of a statue depicting their rival soccer club's legendary player seem like amateurs.

Two intoxicated teens beheaded a homeless man and then played soccer with the man's head in the streets of Moscow, according to a New York Daily News report.

The two young Russians decapitated the man with an ax, saw and knives, "because they didn't like the look of him," the Daily News reported.

The two kids kicked the head around the streets of Moscow and into a garbage can, according to the report.

Investigators followed a trail of blood from the body to an apartment, where they found the suspects and their weapons covered in blood, Russian news outlet RIA Novosti said.

Three other teenagers reportedly witnessed the brutal murder. The two suspects have been arrested on murder charges and face 15 years in prison. (Um, only 15 years?)

While a local Investigative Committee spokesman denied the teenaged duo played soccer with the man's head, according to RIA Novosti, one of the three witnesses told Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda that they did indeed kick it around and into the trash.

Now, excuse me for a moment while I go vomit.
