Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

tags: , , , , , , ,

I thought I’d read or heard of absolutely everything, but apparently, this is not the case. It turns out that the spousal unit found a cookbook that he thinks is “hilarious” .. which means that he has to share it with me, too. Being a bibliophile, I always appreciate learning about new titles on the market, but this book surely is the strangest ever!

The author (whom I do not know), Fotie Photenhauer, writes:

Semen is not only nutritious, but it also has a wonderful texture and amazing cooking properties. Like fine wine and cheeses, the taste of semen is complex and dynamic. Semen is inexpensive to produce and is commonly available in many, if not most, homes and restaurants. Despite all of these positive qualities, semen remains neglected as a food. This book hopes to change that. Once you overcome any initial hesitation, you will be surprised to learn how wonderful semen is in the kitchen. Semen is an exciting ingredient that can give every dish you make an interesting twist. If you are a passionate cook and are not afraid to experiment with new ingredients – you will love this cook book! [Fotie Photenhauer]

I wonder what Monty Python thinks about cooking semen? Especially since “Every Sperm is Sacred”?

So what does a Grrl have to do to get a review copy of this book mailed to her secret lair in Germany?

    I can possibly understand Hannibal Lecter’s food preferences -after, all, who has not indulged in a little cannibalism now and then- but this is “X-File” weird!

    As many women and some men will attest the sensory qualities of semen varies with the diet of the producer. Garlic being one obvious food affecting taste.

    My post was rejected for being one of too many in a short period of time? Last comment was months ago!

    canine: i think your original comment was “rejected” because it contained a four-letter word: “diet.”

    anyway, i put quotes around the word “rejected” because it wasn’t really rejected since i didn’t have to do anything to recover it or publish it (no poking around in my spam filters, for example), so not sure why you got that message nor what the dealio was …

    I’m not going to lie, that flan (on the cover) looks pretty tasty … until I remember what it was made of.

    This totally changes the whole meaning of the phrase “Your mother should have just ate you”.
