"We went to the butcher, the surgeon and the studio, then we looked at each other and just ate it,” Storm says.   (YouTube)

(Newser) – In what is believed to be a TV first, viewers in the Netherlands tomorrow night will see a celebrity chef frying Dutchmen. Television hosts Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno say they underwent surgery to have a small piece of their flesh removed and then dined on each other in front of a studio audience, ABC reports. A stomach-churning promo for the show Proefkonijnen—"Test Rabbits"—shows the pair going under the knife.

"The punchline of the show is to get really simple answers on stupid questions, such as: ‘Can you shave with ketchup’ or ‘Can you drive blind?’” Storm explains. “We wanted to find out how human flesh tasted." The taste of the meat wasn't that special, he says, "but it is weird to look into the eyes of a friend when you are chewing on his belly." The pair say that since they entered into the cannibalism pact voluntarily, the stunt was entirely legal.

Typical of the Dutch to pioneer something like this. I sometimes get the feeling that some people want to transgress for no other reason than it is not acceptable behaviour, and that is really quite juvenile.

What do you expect from descendants of the Vikings, it's in their DNA.
