Surgical sim dinner: food made to look like entrails of writhing "patient"

PETP stunt?


#3

I’ll pass.


#4

That’s fucked up.


#5

I still prefer naked sushi girls. If someone’s going to be upset at you, it might as well be for something enjoyable, or at the very least, something with naked sushi girls.


#6

What.
The actual.
Fuck.


#7

Awesome.

I’d love to go to a dinner like that. I’ve done similar things with lab glassware and specimen tubes, but these guys are really doing it right. The screaming patient is a brilliant touch.


#8

All the fun of cannibalism and all the refined style of torture porn, now in a tasty meal.

Or, you could just go to Arby’s.


#9

Pretty unrealistic though…they usually stop screaming way before that point. :slight_smile:


#10

Unless of course they’re genetically modded for purpose.


#11

I’m reminded of a passage from E.L. Doctorow’s Ragtime, describing poverty balls:

One hostess invited everyone to a stockyard ball. Guests were wrapped in long aprons and their heads covered with white caps. They dined and danced while hanging carcasses of bloody beef trailed around the walls on moving pulleys. Entrails spilled on the floor. The proceeds were for charity.

I’m going to be undergoing some surgery soon that will make me look like the “patient”, although hopefully I won’t be screaming. And this sounds AWESOME. I wish it could be my last meal before I go under the knife. It would be a great way to put what’s going to happen to my entrails in perspective.

My wife is a nurse in an operating theatre where the patients are often awake during surgery. One older guy from America evidently worked as a salesman - his chest was open and the surgeon was working on him, but he just wanted to sell my wife some health products.


#14

I hate to be that guy, but it’s spelled “trompe-l’œil” (œil not oeil).

That’s not true, I love being that guy :slight_smile: Save the o-e ligature!


#15

I work in operating theatres and so not really bothered by real blood and displayed anatomy. But that is disturbing. It’s more psychopathic murderer’s torture dungeon than operating theatre and patient.


#16

Salesman of the Year!


#17

The last time I had surgery I started reciting the lyrics of “Comfortably Numb” as the anesthesia was wearing off. Everyone in the operating room was very amused.


#18

How do you make one of those? If I had to, I’d probably google the word and copy&paste the character but I’m sure there’s a better way.

I do love pasting, though. Bœœœœœœœœœœœœ! French ghost!


#19

To be fair, even in France the ligature is often missing. I blame computers for this, since the character is harder to type it is used less often. I think I’ve read about the same thing happening to the “cent” symbol (¢) a while back, maybe even on boingboing.

edit: maybe that was it, I don’t remember. http://www.charlieanderson.com/centsign.htm

On Windows, you can type alt+0140, and alt+0156 for the uppercase version. http://superuser.com/questions/364417/how-do-i-type-the-ligature-œ-into-the-international-keyboard

In html, it’s simply œ. Hey that works here too! Html entities are converted :smile:
