Man Served His Friends Tacos Made from His Severed Limb
NEW YORK — June 14, 2018
User Incredibly Shiny Shirt, who didn't want his name revealed, was in a severe car accident. A few days later when he was in the hospital, the doctors said his foot was shattered to the point that he would never walk on it again. When they asked if he wanted to amputate it, he thought that the doctors was not going to cremate the leg, but would chuck it into a landfill. Around a week in, he decided to let them cut it off. And he wanted it back.
Three weeks after the accident, the young man invited 10 of his best friends to a dinner. He offered them different dishes. But the main course was fajita tacos made from Shiny's severed human limb.
All this time the leg was stored in a freezer in a red plastic biowaste bag.
"You know that scene in National Lampoon’s Family Vacation where Chevy Chase is just saying, “This is crazy, this is crazy, this is crazy”? That’s how I felt. I thought, “This is probably the peak weirdness of my life. I hope it doesn’t get weirder than this." told Shirt about that case in an interview.
He added that his friends quickly came up what to do for the cooking portion of the challenge.
However, when they asked him, "How has this ordeal changed the way you feel about cannibalism?"
"I don’t have some hunger to go hunt people down and gnaw off their faces. This was one experience where I had the chance to do something unique in a healthy and ethical manner. I did it and it was fun and cool, and I have a great story," answered Shirt.
The United States doesn’t have a federal law banning cannibalism. Idaho is the only state in which the simple act of eating human flesh can land you in prison.
Shiny's is the rare case where cannibalism was legal. He documented this case, latest pictures you can see here.
In addition, there is a site that offers its services in the preparation of human meat. "Cannibal Club brings the cutting edge of experimental cuisine to the refined palates of L.A.’s cultural elite. Our master chefs hail from around the world for the opportunity to practice their craft free of compromise and unbounded by convention," said in Club leader’s statement.
Cannibal Club celebrates artistic excellence as the natural and inevitable expression of the unbridled human spirit.
