Woman Prepares Special Spaghetti Dish With Her Knee Cartilage and Eats It With Her Boyfriend
Trying new delicacies is exciting and enjoyable for most of us. Admittedly, we have to develop a taste for certain food items while some classic dishes are universal favorites. Most of us would cringe if we are told to try human parts though a few people are into eating placenta—considering it nutritious. One woman however has an alarmingly special recipe to offer. If you got weak knees, then it's probably not for you. She decided to eat a part of her knee and fed it to her boyfriend, too, as she disclosed in an interview on the Club 113 podcast. Well, this sounds like a page out of a Greek revenge tragedy.
Paula Gonu recently underwent leg surgery, during which she chose to have a local anesthetic and remain awake in order to converse with the surgeon about what he was doing. The 30-year-old revealed that after the surgery, the doctor asked her if she wanted to keep the piece of cartilage. Paula said, "I told him, ‘Yes’ and he put what he removed into a small container like those used for urine samples. He put it in alcohol so it would stay that way for as long as I wanted. A week later, I was with my partner at the time, having a jokey conversation." She explained, "I told him I wanted to eat it because it was part of me and I had to put it back in my body."
"I wanted to be able to say in my head that I've eaten a piece of my own meniscus," she recalled. Paula then went on to explain that she had made a bolognese sauce, which she had later added to the piece of cartilage and served to her partner. Paula justified her unusual addition to what was likely a delicious pasta dish by claiming that many people eat various bones and animal parts. She questioned then why she is being judged for wanting to have her own body part.
If you've made it so far through this piece, you would probably like a glimpse into the universe of actual self-cannibals. Gwen van der Zwan invited a friend over to try the meaty dish, which she served at a candlelit table with a side salad and a gourmet-style bloody drizzle. It was Zwan's first time trying cannibalism (she had made the meal with her own blood). She and her friend agreed that there was too much soy sauce but it was otherwise delicious. The texture was good, it tasted good, there was a nice hint of spice and if Zwan hadn't spent all day cooking it, she'd never guessed the banger she was eating was made from human blood, reports the New York Post. We hope you aren't completely grossed out after this to enjoy a good meal.
