Alright just a fair warning, don’t be eating when reading this story. It won’t end well for you. Honestly if you are on your lunch break and you clicked on this while chowing down, you might have a deeper issue.
Anyways, you read that right and it’s not any clickbait nonsense. This story comes to us from an anonymous guy from Reddit, but he has pictures to back his claims up. He titled a recent “Ask Me Anything (AMA)” on Reddit, “Hi all, I am a man who ate a portion of his own amputated leg. Ask me anything.”
He wrote it like he was talking about eating a salad at Applebees, perhaps this is actually Hannibal Lecter in real life…
It started off pretty normal, he wrote:
“So the quick and dirty; About 2 years ago I was hit on my motorcycle . The salvaged my foot but I would never be able to walk on it. I elected to have it amputated. I asked the doctors to keep it. I signed some papers. I got it back, and with the help of some friends cooked a portion of the tibialis anterior.”
Here’s what it looked like pre-taco:
I surprise myself every week with some crazy crap to write about, the last time I was this surprised was when this guy said that medicine made him turn gay.
It looks like this guys friends are equally as crazy as he is. He was asked why he would do such a thing…
“So my friends and I always had this joke, If you could try human flesh in an ethical and health way, would you. And we always said of course. Well the opportunity came up and I called them on it.”
Another person asked, “How did you tell people you were going forth with the plan? Like send out an evite?”
Can you imagine what that invitation would look like? Would it be all pretty like a wedding invite? I sure hope so. Well this is how he answered that:
“I called folks who might be amenable. It was only about 2-3 oz that I took off the leg so it couldnt be a big group Plus only people I knew very well
I had one person back out, and it’s totally understandable. I think there was a lot of “wait really” Kinda hoping that I’m joking But it was all happy people who showed up that day Lots of dark jokes.
There were some people very dear to me there, who supported me through that time and who’s friendship I will cherish.”
He even gave a review of the meat in question, I wonder what Gordon Ramsey would say…
“On this scale I would give it a solid 6.5, but keep in mind that I have had a lot of good food. So it’s way better that a hot dog or regular burger. Maybe equal with regular bacon, which is pretty decent. But no where near as good as butter seared sea scallops or a rare sous vide tenderloin seared in grape seed oil in a cast iron pan.”
EQUAL WITH BACON?!
I don’t want this guy to ever get on Reddit again. Just stay in a cave and eat like a caveman. By the way, I only included the images that were safe (enough) for work. If you are a crazy person, you can look at the full post here. Again WARNING it’s gross, I really don’t know why you would want to click there.
