Valerio Zeno and Dennis Storm, co-hosts on the Dutch TV show “Proefkonijnen” ("Test Rabbits" in English) turned Hannibal Lecter-ish when they decided to see what human flesh tasted like, so they did. Each other's. A few centimeters off of Storm's butt, and a few off of Zeno's tummy. Or so they claim.
“We went to the butcher, the surgeon and the studio, then we looked at each other and just ate it,” Storm said. “The special thing is, it was his flesh, of course.” There were no fava beans and chianti. Not even spices, just human flesh cooked medium rare. “The chef cooked it in a frying pan with sunflower oil. We didn’t add any salt or pepper because we wanted to know what it tasted like.”
“The punchline of the show is to get really simple answers on stupid questions, such as, ‘Can you shave with ketchup’ or ‘can you drive blind?’” Storm said. “And we wanted to find out how human flesh tasted.”This is just as grotesque as Keith Richards (of Rolling Stones fame) claiming he snorted his dad's ashes, along with a little cocaine.
The episode airs Wednesday, for those who live in the Netherlands.
