Dutch Talk Show Host Breastfeeds From Stranger

You can count on the Dutch to push the envelope of decency when it comes to entertainment.  In 2011 two co-hosts of a Dutch TV show cannibalized each other. Valerio Zeno and Dennis Storm of the show “Proefkonijnen” ("Test Rabbits" in English) wanted to know what human flesh tasted like, so they allegedly tried it.

“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.”

Now we have Dutch talk show host Paul de Leeuw taking a hike down that same road of bad taste.  He was interviewing some mothers who are part of a group that shares breast milk, when he decided he wanted to sample some himself.  Not from the bottle offered by one of the mothers, but directly from her breasts. Both of them. The woman seemed very happy to oblige. He liked the second one best, though he mentions he could tell she had eaten asparagus.


Here's the video, in Dutch.
