Many questions come to mind (why would he do this, why would anyone else want to eat that, why are we fascinated by it, how did canabalism ‘slip through the cracks’ of the Japanese legal system, etc…) but for some reason, the one thing I’m most curious about is:
Why the Hell did he only charge $250 a plate?! I’d like to think that with the rarity of such a “dish,” and the type of people who ‘get off’, for lack of a better phrase, on spending gobs on money on crazy, rare, ‘once in a lifetime’ kind of shit like this, that he easily could have gotten $1000 a plate or more. I mean…you’d think at the very least he’d want enough to pay for the surgery and medical care he needed!
Yeah, my BS meter is pinging hard on this one. But who knows? Among other things, I just can’t imagine that sort of “medical waste” would be released in such a manner in Japan, assuming the person who performed it was a licensed doctor. I mean, if I got my bits cut off here in the US, I assume I wouldn’t be allowed to take them home with me, even if I wanted to, right?
Eh, I’m not buying it. The pictures are indistinct, the cooked and plated pics could be anything. It’s not like cooked testes of other animals is unheard of or difficult to come by for some hoax pics. The baggie could have a pork chop in it for all I can tell.
This one may or may not be BS but there the story of the German man who volunteered to be eaten by a cannibal that is 100% true and contains some of the same elements (the man who was killed and eaten was also the coworker of a board member). Germany and Japan are always a wacky pair but Germany still wins the gold.
“On the evening of March 9, the two men went up to the bedroom in Meiwes’ rambling timbered farmhouse. Mr Brandes swallowed 20 sleeping tablets and half a bottle of schnapps before Meiwes cut off Brandes’ penis, with his agreement, and fried it for both of them to eat.”
Its recommended to Always laugh at the chefs jokes at a Japanese Steakhouse. With those knives, you wouldn’t want to tempt them to castrate you & serve you up with rice.
Or flip the cooked bits into a table guests mouth…
