When a story as juicy as this one crosses our desks, even if it’s not related to a specific horror movie or other type of project, we just can’t let it go by without commenting on it. Meet Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno, two Dutch TV show hosts who dined on each other’s flesh as part of a new show on BNN called “Proefkonijnen” or, as its title translates, “Test Rabbits.”
“The punchline of the show is to get really simple answers [to] 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.” So part of Storm’s left butt cheek was carved out by a surgeon while Zeno opted to have a piece of his abdomen removed, and then they had it cooked up by a top chef. “The chef cooked it in a frying pan with sunflower oil,” Storm added. “We didn’t add any salt or pepper because we wanted to know what it tasted like.”
“Nothing is really that special when you’re talking about the taste of the meat,” Storm told ABC News, “but it is weird to look into the eyes of a friend when you are chewing on his belly.”
If you happen to live in the area, the cannibalistic episode airs Wednesday in the Netherlands. What will they think of next?
