The bar for giving the mentally-disturbed their 15 minutes of fame keeps on being raised, doesn’t it? It used to be that all you had to do was paint pictures with your own poo, or take a photo of a crucifix submerged in urine. Now the desperate, pathetic and decadent really have to jump through hoops.

That's disgusting, they weren't even offered any sauces.

But in a recent Reddit post, user IncrediblyShinyShart shared the story of a motorcycle crash that put him face-to-face with the macabre hypothetical. When a car hit his bike and sent him careening into a nearby forest, his foot was shattered to the point that he would never walk on it again. When the doctor asked if he wanted to amputate, his one question was, “Can I keep it?”
The doctor said yes. On Sunday, July 10, 2016, three weeks after the accident, Shiny, who prefers to remain anonymous, invited 10 of his most open-minded friends to a special brunch. They ate apple strudel, quiche puff pastries, fruit tarts, and chocolate cake. They drank gin lemonade punches and mimosas. And then the main course came out: fajita tacos made from Shiny's severed human limb.

I bet the mates all swigged plenty of alcoholic punch, lobbed down a load of pastries and cake and then, already green around the gills, eyed the tacos with troubled frowns.

'Shall we sit outside? Just a taste, ooh, lovely! Look, is that a sparrowhawk? They're getting rare!'

Looks like a Ritual Cannibal Cult has been busted. But... a guy walks into a copshop and says he's tired of eating human flesh?!

Four men have appeared in a South African court facing charges of cannibalism after one allegedly walked into a police station declaring he was "tired" of eating human flesh.

When questioned further, the man produced part of a human leg and hand.

Police then accompanied the man back to a house in KwaZulu-Natal where more body parts were found.

Four men, two of them traditional healers, were arrested and charged with murder and conspiracy to murder.

They appeared in Estcourt Magistrate's Court, about 175km (110 miles) north-west of Durban, on Monday.

A police spokesperson told the BBC that it is possible that the four young men, aged between 22 and 32 years old, are part of a bigger syndicate.

The investigation is still under way, with police urging people whose relatives have disappeared in the vicinity of Estcourt to come forward. ...

Court case concludes.

A man who told police officers that he was "tired" of eating human flesh has been sentenced to life in prison for killing a woman in South Africa for her body parts.

Nino Mbatha, a traditional healer, was charged last year for the murder of Zanele Hlatshwayo. The Pietermaritzburg high court found Mbatha and a second man, Lungisani Magubane, guilty of the murder, which was described by Judge Peter Olsen as "the most heinous crime". Mbatha walked into a police station in Estcourt, a town in South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province, last year. He announced that he needed police assistance because he was "tired" of eating body parts, according to 'The Witness' newspaper.

Two police officers listening to the healer's story did not believe him as he appeared unstable, the judge said. But Mbatha then produced a human hand and leg from his bag. A team of investigators later travelled to the 33-year-old's house, where they found more body parts.

An alleged self-confessed cannibal is said to have cut up his mother into more than 1,000 tiny pieces. Jobless waiter Alberto Sanchez Gomez reportedly made the gruesome confession to officers and said he shared parts of the body with his pet dog. Gomez, 26, was arrested when detectives turned up at his family home in Madrid to inquire about missing OAP Maria Soledad Gomez.

"1000 tiny pieces"? What a hard working young man, he should be rewarded with a job as a chef or butcher.

She broke his heart so he ate her's.

Jury selection came to a halt Wednesday in the case of an Indiana man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and eating her organs.

Joseph Oberhansley is charged with the murder of Tammy Blanton. Oberhansley is accused of killing the 46-year-old in 2014 at her home in Jeffersonville. Blanton had broken up with Oberhansley and moved out of the home days before. Jury selection, which was moved out of Clark County into Hamilton County, began mid-August for his first trial. But a mistrial was quickly declared when a friend of the victim's "slipped up" and reffered to Oberhansley's past drug use and prison time —information prosecutors and the defense agreed not to share during the proceeding.

Maybe some measure of cannibalism is in our future, like it or not ...
Scientist Controversially Suggests The Climate Crisis May Make People Eat Human Flesh

Last week, behavioural scientist Magnus Söderlund posed a controversial question at a seminar in Sweden: Can you imagine eating human flesh?

As global temperatures continue to rise, Söderlund said in a talk at the Gastro Summit in Stockholm, the consequences for agriculture could cause food to become more scarce, which might force humans to consider alternative forms of nourishment.

Those sources might include insects like grasshoppers or worms, but they could also include corpses, Söderlund said. By gradually getting accustomed to the taste of our own flesh, he added, humans might come to view cannibalism as less taboo.

Söderlund, a behavioural scientist at the Stockholm School of Economics, doesn't research nutrition science or the economics of our global food supply. He studies psychological reactions, like the audible groan from attendees when they were asked whether they'd consider eating a corpse.

"I'd be open to at least tasting it," Söderlund later told the State Swedish Television channel TV4.

The idea of using cannibalism to supplement our food supply isn't new. In 2018, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins wondered if it would be possible to grow meat from harvested human cells in a laboratory.

Like Söderlund, he called the idea "an interesting test case" that might demonstrate whether humans could overcome the "yuck" factor in order to do something they considered moral, like reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. ...
