Man cooks and eats his own finger after losing it in an accident
He said he had always been curious about cannibalism and what human flesh tastes like
The man Essex asked doctors if he could take it home with him after the procedure and they had no objections.
David says that he had always been curious about cannibalism and what human flesh would taste like, but the fact that going around eating another person’s meat is illegal, he had never actually satisfied his curiosity.
But curiosity wasn’t the only reason that convinced Playpenz to go through with his bizarre plan. “I know it sounds mad, but it wasn’t just the curiosity. That finger was a big bit of me, too big a bit to lose,” he said.
“I decided that, if I ate the flesh and kept the bones, then I wouldn’t be losing part of me.”
After two days of recovery, David went into the kitchen and cooked his finger. To make sure he didn’t damage the bones, he opted to boil the digit instead of frying or roasting it, and didn’t season it with salt or sauce because he wanted to taste the meat’s real flavor.
Playpenz assured everyone that eating his own finger hasn’t turned him into a serial cannibal the likes of Hannibal Lecter.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that he never plans on repeating. He is keeping the bones in a box, as a souvenir.
