Food From the South

Given the title of this blog, you can imagine how squeamish we were when we read this story (which is really not safe for anybody):

On Sunday, April 13, Tokyo illustrator Mao Sugiyama (who goes by the nickname “HC”), publicly seasoned and braised his own genitals on a portable gas cartridge burner, and then served them to five eager diners who each paid about $250 for the meal (a sixth was a no-show). The genitals had been returned to the asexual Sugiyama, frozen and double-bagged in plastic, following elective genital removal surgery on his 22nd birthday in early April.

More information, including photos, at the link above. The friend who sent this along asks, “I sometimes wonder whether we are in a similar period to rome in 200 AD: sophisticated and dazzling material culture, many weird things happening, a clandestine and oppressed Christianity out of sight, the
people using their old gods and ethics to explain what is going on…”

He may be right. Myself, I’m wondering why the chef didn’t make coq au vin! (Boom-tish!)

    I’m glad I didn’t click that link from work, but went through to the article to get the extra info.

    Shocking pun. I’m trying to think of a way to cleverly work “spotted dick” into this comment but will just give up.
