An anonymous man who was involved in a motorcycle accident in 2016 confessed on Reddit that he fed pieces of his amputated foot to his friends.
In an interview with VICE News, Reddit user IncrediblyShinyShart explained he was in a motorcycle accident two years ago that caused a compound fracture in his left foot. The injury was severe to the point where Shiny would not be able to walk again. Before deciding to amputate his foot, he asked the doctor if he could keep it.
The doctor told the Reddit user he could take his foot home after filling out the proper paperwork. After having the foot amputated and taking it home, Shiny invited ten of his friends to brunch at his house. He explains how he asked his most open-minded friends to eat the limb with him:
“I invited 11 people. I said something like, ‘Remember how we always talked about how, if we ever had the chance to ethically eat human meat, would you do it? Well, I’m calling you on that. We doing this or what?’ Ten said yes. I guess we’re a weird group.”
He added that one of his friends asked her boyfriend if he could cook the meal:
“One friend said she’d ask her boyfriend, a chef, if he would do the cooking. Perfect.”
The menu for the cannibalistic meal was apple strudel, quiche puff pastries, gin lemonade punches, and fajita tacos made from the foot.
He chopped off the top of his shin and placed the piece of muscle in a plastic bag then place it in a freezer. Shiny and his friends cast the leg and cremated it afterward.
Shiny described that the chef let the foot marinate overnight and cooked it with onions, peppers, salt, pepper, and lime juice. The meat was served on corn tortillas with tomatillo sauce. He was asked about the taste of the meat during the interview:
“This particular cut was super beefy. It had a very pronounced, beefy flavor to it. The muscle I cut was tough and chewy. It tasted good, but the experience wasn’t the best. “
He says that the strange meal gave him closure as the accident made him feel uncertain about the future.
“I remember waking up in the hospital many times and just crying, wondering what my life was going to be. I talked with the doctor about what we could do, what was salvageable. But there were bones missing and everything else was garbage. I would never be able to walk on it again. Around a week in I decided to let them cut it off.”
In addition, Shiny stated what he did was completely ethical and unique.
“I think you can ethically be a cannibal in certain situations. I don’t have some hunger to go hunt people down and gnaw off their faces. This was one experience where I had the chance to do something unique in a healthy and ethical manner. I did it and it was fun and cool, and I have a great story.”
