…Cannibal banquets aren’t real?

Cannibal Banquet

When I first read about cannibal banquets, I had my doubts, but I figured that stranger things have been tried in the name of high fashion food, so I assumed it was possible. The idea behind the banquets was that Japanese food was served inside of a human corpse, piñata style, and then diners would cut away at the body to get at the meat within. The body would even bleed when cut, just to give it that little bit of extra authenticity. Though vorephiliacs would probably jump at the chance, I think most people would cringe at the idea of eating a human body, even a fake one, so I’m not surprised by the fact that this is most likely a one-time hoax featuring some creative photography and a somewhat believable backstory.
