Yes, this is an item that is actually sold in the Philippines. KFC Philippines is now serving the Cheese Top Burger, which is a fried chicken patty sandwich with garlic Parmesan dressing and a slice of melted cheese on top of the bun. Guess all other ideas for disgusting KFC foods have been used up.
Check out the KFC ad circulating in the Philippines:
A 22-year-old Japanese man, Mao Sugiyama, served five guests a special treat at a Tokyo dinner party - his genitals. Mao, who is asexual, had his genitals removed voluntarily shortly after his 22nd birthday and took them home after the operation to freeze. His original plan was to cook the genitals for his own dining pleasure, but was kind enough to share them with five guests who paid around £160 for the opportunity.
One guest tweeted before the event, "It's a once in a lifetime chance, so I decided on the spur of the moment to do it.'
The dish was prepared by Mao who was supervised by a chef. The meal included a part of the penis, testes and scrotum and was garnished with mushrooms and parsley.
Mao wrote on Twitter:
"The organs were surgically removed at age 22. I was tested to be free of venereal diseases. The organs were of normal function. I was not receiving female hormone treatment."
Guests admitted the hormone-free genitalia were very rubbery and had little taste. Sugiyama, who is an illustrator by trade, has also had his nipples removed, however, no word on whether or not they made it onto a dinner plate.

I ate a Dorito Loco Taco at Taco Bell in the wee hours of last night. I would like to say that my irrepressibly curious palette led me to that decision. I would also like to cite my willingness to set aside concerns about my health and well-being in the pursuit of contemporary culinary innovation. More accurately, alcoholic beverages were also involved in the making of that decision.
I can confirm the Loco Taco does in fact taste like a giant Dorito chip wrapped around Taco Bell's 88% meat taco filling, reduced fat sour cream, and shredded iceberg lettuce. I added "Fire" sauce for a "kick." It comes encased in a paper shell that seems designed to keep the Dorito dust off of your fingers while eating it. At a certain point while consuming the taco, I had to remind myself that the hunk of white stuff in the middle was supposed to be sour cream and not Miracle Whip.
During this particularly unique culinary experience, I was reminded of the recent ad campaign for Ruffle's potato chips that suggested: "PUNCH YOUR MOUTH IN ITS FACE."* Much like that campaign, eating a Loco Taco is akin to committing self-inflicted hand-on-mouth violence. The legal implications of assaulting one's own mouth are unclear to me, but I would advise generally avoiding the practice if possible.
*I admit that I have some fondness for the surrealist image conjured by that turn of phrase, which has caused me to spend a considerable amount of time trying to determine where the face of my mouth would be located.
"Bon Rappetite is the world's first hip hop restaurant. Featuring a delicious menu that caters to the ballers. Relax at the bar with a signature cocktail, like the refreshing Long Island Ice-T, or eat so many shrimp you get iodine poisoning in our relaxing dining area. One thing's for sure, you better bring your rappetite.™"
And its menu is off the chain, featuring such dishes as:
• Waka Flocka Flambé: Our take on a Baked Alaskan — the Baked Atlantan! Oh let's do it!
• Ras Kass-erole: Ask your server to come widdit, and tell you about the casserole of the day.
• Snoop Doggy Corndogs: 4 fresh fried corndoggs that ain't leavin til six in the mornin. So what you wanna do?
• Chili Akon Carne: This spicy bowl of chili will make you want to smack that!
No, it's not the latest rap star vanity project (we think). Rather, it seems to be a pretty clever joke by a website designer with some time on his or her hands. So, don't drive down to Confederate Avenue expecting to be able to actually order Creme Puff Daddies. If our hunch is correct (our call hasn't been returned yet), the site is also a pretty savvy marketing scheme to get attention for one's social media business, which in this case appears to be named Baby Robot Industries. And it isn't Baby Robot's first foray into fake websites. They were previously responsible for cash4teeth.net.
I posted the original version of this scene from Paula Deen's show in the past, but this version, poetically entitled "Paula Deen takes 'ludes and makes food," is worth a view. Check out two other tampered scenes by the same You-Tuber, Wolfgore, a Tampa artist. I should issue an adults-only for the one featuring Paula and an eclair.
Geez. As we hear constantly, food in the public schools is about as unhealthy as it can be. Most of it contributes to the childhood obesity that has become epidemic. Safety is a major issue too.
Now, it turns out, Marietta schools are serving students long-expired food, according to CBSAtlanta:
After a CBS Atlanta investigation raised Tough Questions about the safety of food being served at Marietta City Schools, the school system found expired food in two of the district's dozen schools.
The admission in a letter from Superintendent Dr. Emily Lembeck Monday night. The actual letter appears [as PDF file in the sidebar of the site's article].
The allegations are being made by Howard Clotfelter, a former food warehouse manager for Marietta City Schools. He's breaking his silence about what he said is a dirty secret he fears could make children sick.
"My personal concern is you're talking about 7,000 kids being served this product," said Clotfelter.
