I can't seem to wrap my head around the asinine shit that has been going on in the past few months as if it's trendy to act like a total nutcase.
"Artist" Laura Ginn recently served a $100-a-head gourmet dinner made almost entirely from rats.
As part of a photography and performance event called “Tomorrow We Will Feast Again on What We Catch,” a group of about 20 New Yorkers got the chance to chow down on a succulent meal of rat and pork paté and braised and grilled rodent carcass, among other ratty incarnations.
Ginn explains via Kickstarter
"I’ve spent the past year and a half working on a new project exploring self-sufficiency in an urban environment,” Ginn writes. From building her own shelters to making her own leather from actual animal skins, Ginn has tapped into our hunter-gatherer roots and perhaps provided diners the key to making it out of 2012 alive."
Not that it really makes a difference, the 75 rats used to create the meal weren’t your average NYC bottom feeders, as they were delivered cleaned and frozen from a medical facility in California.
For just $2000, you can have your very own private dinner made from Master Splinter’s cousins; $5000 will get you a private dinner for four.
