WTF Japan???

So Messed up!

Mao Sugiyama, a self-described “asexual” from Tokyo, cooked up, seasoned and served his own genitalia to five diners at a swanky banquet in Japan last month, Calorie Lab reported….Just days after Sugiyama’s 22nd birthday, the artist underwent elective genital-removal surgery, divvied up the severed penis shaft, testicles, and scrotal skin between five people, and garnished it with button mushrooms and Italian parsley.

On April 13, five of six diners who signed up for the $250-a-plate feast, sat down to dinner. The sixth person was a no-show.

The next day, an organizer posted a blog — subsequently deleted — containing pictures of the event. Images showed dozens of people who attended the event just to catch a glimpse of the rare treat.

The extra diners were served crocodile-based dishes while Sugiyama cooked up the exclusive meal.

If you want to go further down the rabbit hole, there are pictures at the link.

Wow! Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!

    Well, he’s not “self described as an asexual” any more. He is.

  2. Bob S. says:

    And we are supposed to emulate Japan in so many ways because they have such a non-violent culture (e.g. no guns and WRONG)……I think I’ll stick to American Cuisine.

    Was the toast Eat Me?

  4. A Critic says:

    Neat – another libertarian litmus test. Weerd, would you prohibit such actions? I wouldn’t even though I won’t follow the link and regret reading the story.

    • Kristopher says:

      Another good reason to not treat people and ideology as some kind of computer program. Take any ideology to an extreme, and you will find the ridiculous.

      If you go all the way with libertarian body ownership arguments, you can justify selling your future corpse to a necrophilia club … and the necros can sell it to a cannibal meat-packer once they are done with it.

    And in TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY unrelated news to a self-proclaimed “asexual” serving up his gentleman’s sausage as, well, sausage…

    “Japan faces dramatic population decline”

    Cause, meet effect. Effect, cause.

    So… we finally found someone who’s gun WOULD BE a penis substitute.

  7. Greg Camp says:

    Pathetic. Yes, there are crazy people in this world, but why would anyone enable their actions? I’m not calling for laws against this kind of surgery, but why would any doctor agree to do it? Why would anyone spend money to attend this meal?

    There are times when the only response is to move along back to the world of good sense.

    “There no WTF? quite like a Japanese WTF?“.

    Gives new meaning to the term “junk food.”

    I am truly sorry I looked at that but did anyone else hear the “Les Poissons” music from the Little Mermaid while they were reading it?

    Les poissons, les poissons
    Hee hee hee, haw haw haw
    With a cleaver I hack them in two
    I pull out what’s inside
    And I serve it up fried
    God, I love little fishes, don’t you?
