Guy Served His Friends Tacos Made From His Own Amputated Leg


Okay, so bear with me here. There’s this guy, who as-yet remains anonymous (probably for the best). He was knocked off his motorcycle so bad once he had to amputate his foot. Having kept said foot, he and his buddies then ATE it. 

He was prepared with ‘No sauce, cooked with some lime and onions and peppers.’

‘So the quick and dirty,’ he wrote in a ` AMA. ‘About 2 years ago I was hit on my motorcycle . They salvaged my foot but I would never be able to walk on it. I elected to have it amputated. I asked the doctors to keep it. I signed some papers. I got it back, and with the help of some friends cooked a portion of the tibialis anterior.’

A good start is… why?


In his own words:

So my friends and I always had this joke, If you could try human flesh in an ethical and health way, would you. And we always said of course. Well the opportunity came up and I called them on it


Speaking about who would be eating the flesh he said:

I called folks who might be amenable. It was only about 2-3 oz that I took off the leg so it couldn’t be a big group Plus only people I knew very well

I had one person back out, and it’s totally understandable. I think there was a lot of “wait really” Kinda hoping that I’m joking But it was all happy people who showed up that day Lots of dark jokes.

There were some people very dear to me there, who supported me through that time and who’s friendship I will cherish.


He added:

10 of my friends joined in for a brunch. Only the foot was damaged, but with below the knee amputations they want to do it higher up so there is a balance between having enough stump to make for a good lever and having enough room beneath for prosthetic equipment. If they amputated low it would make it difficult to put good hardware underneath.


As for how he tasted when it was all said and done:

On this scale I would give it a solid 6.5, but keep in mind that I have had a lot of good food. So it’s way better than a hot dog or regular burger. Maybe equal with regular bacon, which is pretty decent. But no where near as good as butter seared sea scallops or a rare sous vide tenderloin seared in grape seed oil in a cast iron pan.

It was from a healthy part of the amputation, Im a healthy person, waste not want not, and they [my friends] all consented. As far as I know they are all still cool with it. It’s a fun weird thing.

Okay, so if you’re reading this you might be thinking ‘Uhmmm, bro. Where’s the foot pictures?’ Well, if you wanna ruin your day like I did mine then be my guest and check them out right here.

Top Dem Faces Ethics Questions After Watchdog Group Finds His Wife May Have Benefitted From His Committee Role

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Cummings chairs a committee meeting on White House security clearances on Capitrol Hill in Washington

Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) is facing ethics concerns after a conservative watchdog group found that his wife may have benefitted from his House leadership position, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.

Cummings chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform which is the main investigative committee of the lower legislative body. While serving as chair, Cummings has overseen the investigations into and regulations for many large corporations.

The chairman’s wife, Maya Rockeymoore, operates a non-profit called Center for Global Policy Solutions and a for-profit consulting agency called Global Policy Solutions, LLC.

While Cummings served as chair of the Oversight Committee, Rockeymoore’s Global Policy Solutions received financial backing from Google, J.P Morgan, and Prudential — all of which had business before the committee while Cummings was serving as chair or ranking member.

Johnson & Johnson charity, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was the non-profit’s largest financial backer. Rockeymoore raked in more than $10 million into her two operations from the charity. Her non-profit received a total of $5.2 million while her for-profit consulting firm brought in $5.5 million.

The pharmaceutical giant stopped contributing to Rockeymoore’s operations in 2017. Since then, Cummings has been a vocal critic of Johnson & Johnson as part of the committee’s investigation into pharmaceutical prices in the U.S.

When the right-leaning National Legal and Policy Center requested the financial records of Rockeymoore’s non-profit — which the organization is required by law to turn over — the non-profit refused. This prompted the IRS complaint from the center requesting information about the overlapping aspects of Rockeymoore’s non-profit and for-profit operations.

This overlap could be illegal because Rockeymoore’s consulting group received a $1 million federal contract to oversee “Leadership for Healthy Communities” — a 2017 project from the General Services Administration — for which Rockeymoore’s non-profit “served as the national program office.” This could qualify as “self-dealing,” which is illegal under IRS laws.

National Legal and Policy Center’s Government Integrity Project director Tom Anderson claimed the lack of transparency is a “serious problem.” Anderson told the Washington Examiner:

“When a powerful chairman of a committee of the House of Representatives has a wife that is bringing in money from entities with interests before his Committee and she is not providing the transparency mandated by the IRS, there’s a serious problem. The potential for corruption in this situation is simply off the charts and can’t be understated. We hope Chairman Cummings works with his wife to end the stonewalling and provide the public with what’s legally mandated all charities provide.”

This IRS controversy for Cummings and Rockeymoore comes as the congressman continues to demand that President Donald Trump release his personal taxes for his committee to comb through.

A mother slashed her five-day-old daughter to death because she ‘didn’t want her baby,’ police say. Hiralbahen Bhavsar, 29, was arrested in Little Ferry, New Jersey on Thursday after authorities say she sliced the infant’s throat and arm with a knife. She called police to her home claiming she had chest pains and told responding officers that her husband, Jaymin, was trying to kill her in their Liberty Street apartment. Jaymin was handcuffed, but other family members who were in the home began screaming: ‘No, no, not him,’ according to Police wrote: ‘At this time, Hiralbahen exited a rear bedroom and began stating, “No, no not him. I did it. I killed my baby.”

Officers then found the lifeless baby in the bedroom with cuts to her arm and neck. Police questioned Hiralbahen, who told them she ‘didn’t want her baby’ and she killed the child.

Jaymin told investigators that his family was eating dinner when the baby began crying, so his wife took the baby into the rear bedroom. He said Hiralbahen then left the room without the infant, grabbed an item from the kitchen, then returned to the bedroom and locked the door. Just hours before the stabbing, She posted a photo of herself with the child and her husband, Fox reported, but it appears to have been taken down.

Neighbor Aradhana Thakur said that she did not know whether the mother was struggling with postpartum depression, and claimed Hiralbahen seemed ‘normal.’ She said: ‘I saw her yesterday and she was looking OK, normal, but I think she must be going through some sort of depression because no mother could do this to her child.’ Hiralbahen Bhavsar has been charged with first-degree murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.

Police: Woman demanded oral sex at gunpoint, fired shots at man as he fled apartment

Mugshot of Anneisha Speed, suspect


BATON ROUGE – A man leapt from a second-floor apartment Monday after a gun-slinging woman tried to shoot him because he refused to give her oral sex.

Police say Anneisha Speed, 19, was at the victim’s Labelle Avenue apartment Monday when things went south. According to arrest records, the man invited Speed to his apartment after the two spent much of the day together.

Once inside the apartment, the victim says Speed asked him to perform oral sex for her. He declined, and Speed responded by whipping out a .40 handgun, the affidavit says. Speed allegedly aimed the gun at the man and threatened to shoot him if he didn’t give in to her demands.

When the man grabbed Speed’s wrist, she apparently fired a round into the wall. He then ran out onto the second-floor balcony and jumped to the ground as another shot was fired in his direction, police records say.

Officers found Speed outside the apartment a short while later. She allegedly resisted handcuffs and had to be taken to the ground before she was taken into custody.

After searching the apartment, officers found two live .40 rounds and a spent shell casing. They also discovered Speed had apparently stolen a shotgun and Playstation 4 game console from the victim’s home.

She was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison Tuesday on charges of attempted second-degree murder, illegal discharge of a firearm, theft of a firearm, resisting an officer and tampering with evidence.
