    I was reading a book that a friend let me borrow, called "Strange Foods". And it has an artcle about Humen Flesh. And the auther dissribe his recipe of Placenta Pate'. I wrote "From the hospitle, I carried the placenta in a "garbage" bag, and brought it home and saute it w/ garlic, onion, S&P, then grounded it to a paste and made a pate.
    Ohhhh, man is that sick or what? And then he stated that he forgot to devain it, so there was gristle, but friends ate it anyway at the viewing of the baby. AARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!
    It has other recipes like monkey stew and fried bat.

    It would be interesting (in a bizaare, twisted kind of way) to try and come up with a 6-8 course dinner menu from that book! Wonder what the wine pairing would be for placenta pate'?

    ".......Fava beans and a very nice Chianti"
    In the same vane as the thread, and this can be disturbing......
    Anywho, I read an account of a woman staving off post pardum depression by eating the placenta. She found the only way to stomach it was to eat it a la capriccio. The hormones in it were supposed to help the new mother balance out.......... Just eeeewwwwy. Some things are better left unsaid.

    Years ago, I knew an "all-natural" woman who talked about eating her placenta after birthing because animals do it. (I know a housecat that did...) I never asked her if she did. Probably not, because she wasn't really a meat-eater.

    I didn't want to know.

    While we're tapping into Gross Central I would be remiss not to mention the (few) people I knew in California who felt it a healthy tonic to slug down the first cup of urine they produced in the morning.

    Wish I was kidding.

    Grimness alert.

    A Montana short-order cook has been charged with cooking a neighborhood boy into spaghetti sauce and stew and feeding it to the neighbors.

    This is not a joke.

    It is almost enough to make me reconsider my opposition to the death penalty. I sincerely hope that the authorities who let this man out of the mental institution are removed to a place where their mistakes are less costly.
