Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too


In Japan, you can go to a restaurant and dine on a faked human corpse that bleeds when cut and contains anatomically correct organs made of sushi.

For more money, you can "pork your pork": approximately $7,000 U.S. dollars lets you "have your way" with a chicken, dog, pig, or goat which is then cooked up to your preference.

Elsewhere, you can get penis and balls served up from horse, pigs, goats, dogs ... even cock's cock.



Meanwhile, skeptical anthropologists are casting doubt on the reality of cannibalism outside of nut-jobs and starving desperation, which leads us to wonder: Has capitalism reached such decadent lows that it about to recreate horrors that never existed?

In a time when artists eat fetuses, is life imitating myth?
