a recipe

Everybody loves a good recipe. Well, they must, because bloggers post recipes all the time, as if they expect somebody to actually read that shit. Nobody does, and those who try seldom get past the part about soaking your finger in clarified butter, covering it with finely chopped basil and jamming it up a turkey's ass for that mysterious special flavor.

Yeah. I'll bet it IS a special flavor if you suck your finger after you've finished seasoning your bird.

But, I digress... Every now and then, I see a recipe that's really good. Want to know how to cook a placenta?


I'm out of placenta today, so I'm fixing chicken-fried boneless ribeye on a giant bacon-grease biscuit with cream gravy.

I always heard that it was supposed to be eaten raw--just like all the other mammels do it except it generally is the one giving birth that does it. The males of most mammal species had rather eat the newborns than the placenta...

i donno Acidman, there seems to be a proliferation of foodies on the Internet. "Restaurant review" and "recipe" blogs....I break the genre down that way. It all boils down to the authors' ability to write good. Can't get away from that. It's even a network start right off with a 100 readers checking out each other foodie blogs. But outside of that, a regular blogger posting a recipe, is just provisioning the recipe as filler material for their post de jour. I'm not sure if the recipe did not came originally from a Campbell's soup can or a redition of. I don't much read random recipe-entries myself in that regards. Especially if the recipe isn't accompanied by a pictcha of what they dragged you through.

A few well-turned words are worth a thousand pictures.

Somebody might wanta forward this to that raving fucknozzle a.k.a. "Tom Cruise"...

And Bane... this shit is more likely to cause "a few well-turned STOMACHS", I fear.

(Anybody ever seen a cow eat the placenta? It's frickin' GROSS, man... *shudder*)

Eat em? I thought they were supposed to be worn as party hats. What I do. To great acclaim, I may add.

Don't have any placenta? Well, just go suck on a used tampon.

I posted on another blog about wondering if this act (the act of eating a placenta) would be equal to cannibalism but the only comment I received is that if eating a placenta is cannibalism then so is the act of drinking breast milk. Hmm. Didn't quite agree with that.

Neither do I.

Somehow I expected either barbecue sauce or pie crust . . .

All you'all do know that your Herefords that are giving birth to the bull that will become the steer that becomes your steak need "help" to birth ?

If you think a cow eating her placenta is gross, you ought to be out on the ranch reaching an arm's length up her "birth canal" to loop the rope around the hind legs of the "young'un", so you can help her birth your steak with a pulley block and tackle tied to a post.

In polite society in cowboy country, it's called
"pulling calves".

And, it's why I went to college to get an office job.
