Life, as it should be.
Yeah, but it isn't. So here are some observations about
a) What's wrong with it,
b) How it can be improved, and
c) How good it feels to bitch about it.
Life as it should be...in other words, a slice of life that tastes a whole lot like pizza.

Yum Yum, Eat 'Em Up: Maybe Not
Disclaimer: This post is not for the squeamish, easily offended or those about to eat a meal. I'm giving fair warning, don't go bitching later on about how repulsive, ghoulish and distasteful this is. Blah, blah...talk to the hand.
Here we go. Hold on, it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
I read this post yesterday and as an observer and writer...there is no way in hell I can let this go without a comment or three.
So right off the bat, which is more disturbing? The Act, or the fact that the police say cannibalism apparently is...ok with them. Let's start with the Act. So this guy has assorted appendages removed and he takes them home and puts them in the freezer. eeew factor #1.
He then decided to tweet an offer to cook his "leftovers" for a price of about $1250. I guess tweetville freaked a bit, so instead he organized a banquet where he served up a few meals of his delicacy to diners who paid around $250 for the chance to mangia on the meat. eeew factor #2.
However, it seems the entree was a bit disappointing. Apparently texture and taste were the issues. Really? Not the actual consumption? The story gave info on who the diners were and their reasons for indulging. Gotta wonder about how many had "buyers remorse."
As for the police...they report there is no law against cannibalism in Japan. Well that fact is certainly good to know before I book my summer vacation. Do you need to wait until someone dies or can you just whack off someone's pinky toe for a snack. I think we might need some clarification on this point.
Also, as a getting it correct point, although the headline calls this person a transsexual, it seems asexual is more the appropriate term. This post is not meant to comment negatively on his decision for the operation...only on his choice of disposal method.
If you are interested in the full story...complete with pre and post cooking pictures, eeew factor #3, click on the headline for the link
For everyone else...what are you having for lunch today?
