Wtf?

I find that a little hard to believe. I was pretty hungry, I can't think of ANYTHING I want to eat now.

As if these revelations were not bizarre enough, I'm a bit grossed out by Yamamoto's admission that he has an unsavory agreement with some local mortuaries to harvest kidneys and other internal organs for him from children and teenagers who have died in car accidents. But Yamamoto's ultimate desire to prepare the most unthinkable of dinners is what really sends shivers down my spine.

"One day I hope I can cook whole Mexcan," sighs Yamamoto. "Maybe baby Mexcan that mother sell to me. Then I make for my good friend Jon Kyl. I know Senator will like to eat Mexcan. He only like Mexcan when on his dinner plate."
Yeah.

Something I learned a long time ago....what's palatable is a cultural thing.

Like when I was in Norway, I ate Whale. It was actually pretty tasty. I wouldn't mind having it again honestly.

Goat is pretty good as well, just don't eat much of it....it's known for making people sick when they over-indulge.

I could not bring myself to eat a lapdog though....maybe a wolf...but not some cute little fluffball.

Yeah right, I think we're being conned here...

Sounds like the plot from 'The Freshman" with Matt Broderick.

Meat is meat. In reality there isn't much difference between a cow or dog as a food source. We just find one to be cuter than the other.

Would I eat a dog? Of course not, but then I wouldn't eat a cow either. Since I'm a wacky vegetarian.

True, but I think the issue is we feel more sympathy for the cute little furball of a dog than we would for say a Timberwolf.

Meat is meat at the end of the day, it's just the association with what it was and how we view that animal that makes it hard to accept.

Agreed, its the attachments we have to our own current and past pets that would make eating it hard. Your just not eating Fluffy, your eating a family member.

I've eaten goat all my life and never been sick from eating too much.
Lobster, on the other hand, I cannot fathom how people eat it
Please tell me that the linked article is satirical

As I originally implied, I think this is an article worthy of the Onion...except that the Onion keeps its articles shorter!

I get suspicious when anyone is quoted with their accent intact...

...and that photo of him chainsawing a saguaro looks fake...

HAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Found it! I was right!
