Grrr... Arrgh...


Agence France-Presse – A Japanese artist cooked his own genitals and served them to five paying diners in Tokyo to cover the medical costs, in a bizarre act to raise awareness about sexual minorities. Mao Sugiyama had his penis and testicles surgically removed in March and kept them frozen for two months before dishing them out… Diners paid 20,000 yen ($250) for the plate with a portion of genitals. … The painter, who is reportedly 22, said on Twitter the organ had been removed by a physician and certified to be free of infections. … In May 18 tweets, the artist said steps were taken so the act met all relevant laws, including a ban on organ sales, processing of medical waste and even food sanitation requirements. "I receive questions from some women and men... asking 'Will there be a next time? Please host it again.' But there is only one set of male organ," he tweeted on May 16. "Unfortunately, I have no plan for the next time." … Police in Tokyo said they knew of the episode, but added that it had not broken the law as cannibalism was not illegal in Japan. …

How come you all call me a freaky cook?
When people pay to eat or just to take a look?
And don't you try to tell me To Serve Man is just a book
So eat it
Just eat it

You won't get lunch like this at just any mall
You're giving me your money, I'll give you my all
So just grab yourself a seat; I swear you will have a ball
So eat it
Just eat it

Eat it!
Eat it!
If you don't, I'll have to beat it!
Have some nice testes
A slice of my cock
All are quite zesty
Fried in a wok
So eat it…
