A Reddit user may be inspiring others to eat exotically after he shared a story, with picture accompaniment of how he cooked his amputated foot and served it to his friends for dinner.
Vice.com reports that the user, who goes by the name IncrediblyShinyShart shared the story of a motorcycle crash that left him with a shattered foot that he had no choice but to amputate it. When the procedure was done, he took ownership of the foot, invited some friends over for foot meat tacos.
On Sunday, July 10, 2016, three weeks after the accident, Shiny, who prefers to remain anonymous, invited 10 of his most open-minded friends to a special brunch. They ate apple strudel, quiche puff pastries, fruit tarts, and chocolate cake. They drank gin lemonade punches and mimosas. And then the main course came out: fajita tacos made from Shiny’s severed human limb.
VICE: Why did you do this?
Shiny: Originally I wanted to have it taxidermied or freeze-dried. How cool would it be to have my freeze-dried or taxidermied foot standing around the house as a lamp or a doorstop or something? All of this came out of the idea that it’s my foot. It’s not going to be cremated and chucked into a landfill. It’s a part of me, and I want it back.
Shiny goes on to say that one guest had to spit the meat into a napkin while others thought it had a “beefy” taste.
