Finger food – Man eats his own finger
Shockingly enough, the above picture is actually the least disgusting or uncomfortable picture I could find for a “dead” finger….
Anyway, David Playpenz recently hit the odd news world because he cooked and ate his own finger.
In his defense, it’s worth noting that the finger was already “dead”.” he lost it during a motorcycle accident and instead of letting the doctors throw it away, he asked to keep it. Apparently, this is something you’re allowed to do and so he took it home with him. He had been curious about cannibalism and what human meat might taste like, so this was his chance.
As bizarre as it is, I think it’s kind of awesome that he went for it. I don’t think I could eat my own finger, even if I were interested in the taste, but I suppose it’s no creepier than wanting to try someone else’s flesh, right?
I’m kind of impressed that one of his vegan friends was actually one to approve of his taste-test. S/he was okay with it because David had his own permission (whereas animals don’t). He’s also keeping the bones so that he didn’t truly ‘lose a part of himself’. To each his own!
