By Nairaland Forum A man fed his foot to a group of friends at a dinner party after being forced to have it amputated. The bizarre incident came to light this week after the amputee told his story on Reddit.
Around two years ago, he was seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident and despite a battle, medics were forced to amputate his foot. He then asked to keep it, and after completing some paperwork, he took it home.
On July 10th, 2016, just three weeks after the accident, he invited 11 open-minded friends to a special meal. Ten showed up. He served them apple strudel, quiche puff pastries, fruit tarts and chocolate cake with gin lemonade punches and mimosas.Then the main dish was his amputated foot which he named “Foot Taco”

My mom, who was helping me get back on my feet, so to speak, drove me back to pick it up.‘She doesn’t know I ate it, though. I went inside and the hospital gave me my foot in a red plastic biowaste bag. I brought it to the car and immediately put it in a cooler. It was pretty bizarre. I got back to my place and I froze it. I couldn’t find a taxidermist who would take me seriously and freeze-drying was too expensive.
It would have been $1,200 (£900) to freeze dry the thing. If I had the money I would have done it. Eventually, I decided to cast it in plaster to use as a doorstop, then capture a 3D rendering so I can make little keychains. When we got back to my house, I took Read More
