Weird Food News?

A woman cannibal, by Leonhard Kern, 1650

Whats for Dinner

After ranting away yesterday I was feeling a little extreme that is until I found The Church of Euthanasia. I discovered this site when I typed in Long Pig to my search engine. What I was hoping to actually find was the cannibalistic scene from Doomsday, which is how you ended up with the trailer yesterday. This quote is just the tip of the iceberg in a rather long description about how to butcher the human carcass for human consumption.

The human being (also referred to throughout culinary history as “long pig” and “hairless goat” in the case of younger specimens) is not generally thought of as a staple food source. Observing the anatomy and skeleton, one can see that the animal is neither built nor bred for its meat, and as such will not provide nearly as much flesh as a pig or cow (for example, an average 1000 pound steer breaks down to provide 432 pounds of saleable beef). The large central pelvis and broad shoulder blades also interfere with achieving perfect cuts. There are advantages to this however, especially due to the fact that the typical specimen will weigh between 100-200 pounds, easily manipulated by one person with sufficient leverage.

Listen, I’m all for organic and alternative food sourcing, but this is beyond extreme not to mention gross.

Listen up all you people who are either creating fake farmers markets or buying your vegetables at a warehouse and then selling them as farmers market produce, I’m talking to you Safeway (SWY) and Alberstons (SVU). Don’t tempt me to call the guys from the Church of Euthanasia.

These thieves weren’t even messing around when they stole a ton, literally, of rare grapes from a Benton County Vineyard in Washington State. Seriously, who pulls up a truck in the middle of the night and picks a very specific field clean? As one of the owners of the vineyard says in the clip, “that takes a real wine geek.”

And since the wine world is going to be a little short this season there is always Welch’s Concord Grape Juice that the folks over at Gizmodo turned into wine in just 48 hours.
