Thank you Amanda for ruining my day, my week and my quite a long time after that with this, which I sure as hell hope turns out to be some kind of weird hoax.
In what’s being called an attempt to raise awareness of sexual minorities, an artist from Japan cooked up a ballsack buffet and served it to what can only be described as crazy people. Who’s pecker did he prepare, you may wonder. Um…well…his own!
ao Sugiyama, 22, had his genitals removed in early April. They were initially frozen, then defrosted and cooked for customers at an event on April 13.
Sugiyama charged diners 20,000 yen ($250) for the dish. He cooked the genitals himself, under the supervision of a professional chef.
Diners were required to sign a waiver releasing Sugiyama and the event organizers from any liability arising from eating the genitals.
As if that’s not enough, he also wanted to serve up his nipples, but his attempt to burn them off with Sodium hydroxide was unsuccessful.
Even as I’m writing this I can’t help but think I’m being had, but a little more digging has unearthed this more detailed story from the AFP. the dates are different, but there are comments from police and the man(?) himself, pulled from his Twitter and email.
And just in case you want to hear more about what was served, here ya go. No, I don’t care if you want to hear more or not. I had to, so you’re suffering along.
Diners paid 20,000 yen ($250) for the plate with a portion of genitals. Pictures published on a website appeared to show the meal came complete with mushrooms and a parsley garnish.
The painter, who is reportedly 22, said on Twitter the organ had been removed by a physician and certified to be free of infections.
How is this legal? Why are people not being arrested left and right for cooking and eating the left and the right? Well, there appears to be no law against cannibalism in Japan, so the cops are content to just let it go without looking into it.
Oh, how I wish I was as smart as those cops.
