Self Cannibalism.

New Zealand man Simon finished work at midnight and half an hour later walked through the front door of his flat feeling a bit depressed and decided to cook himself a meal hoping it would cheer him up. First of all Simon grabbed a packet of stir fry vegetables from the fridge, a chinese wok from the cupboard, placed it on the gas stove, emptied the entire packet of stir fry vegetables into the wok, added a pinch of salt and pepper, a splash of olive oil. Then walked from the kitchen to the laundry where the freezer is kept, opened the door looking for packs of meat or chicken and discovered he'd run out, then in a rage spat the dummy walked back to the kitchen opened the nearest draw looking for a shoe lace.

At the bottom of the draw he found a shoe lace, tied it around his pinky finger to act as a touriquet, grabbed a large meat cleaver stuck on a magnetic untensil strip fixed to the wall. With knuckles pushed up hard against the edge of the kitchen bench with the pinky finger extended on top and other fingers below the bench top pointing towards the floor and still grasping the large meat cleaver Simon raised it above his head, swung down in a short vicious arc severing his pinky finger which slid across the bench top. Simon reached across, picked it up and dropped it into the wok, cooked it until it was golden brown with the stir fry vegetables sat down and dined on the flesh. Simon enjoyed eating the pinky finger so much he planned to dine another two severed fingers the very next day.

Instead of dining on another two severed fingers Simon sought medical treatment and was diagnosed with moderate symptons of depression which included a rare case of self cannibalism according to a New Zealand Psychiatrist.

Came across this story which actually happened in the newspaper, once again my bizarre mind went into overdrive adding bits and pieces here and there. I don't know about you but i couldn't in my wildest or bizarre dreams ever sever one of my own body limbs cook and eat it no matter what the circumstances no way. Could you sever one of your own body limbs cook and eat it?.

Moderate symptoms of depression? I think the psychiatrist was himself seriously loopy.

And no, even before I became a vegetarian I would not have been able to eat bits of myself. Though I suppose it is the most ethical way of being a carnivore.

He must be such a serious meat eater that he could not envisage having a stir fry without meat. Someone not so long ago had to cut off one of their own limbs to free themselves from a rock or something. Don't know that I could even do that.

Hi Windsmoke,
It is so hard to even imagine somebody doing this, I mean something is definitely missing, this person needs to be locked up quick, the next thing you know it won't be his own fingers but someone else's.

Now that is crazy, but mental illness is a very complicated sitauation for those who suffer from it.

Great post.

G' Day THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: After reading the story I reckon it went way past moderate symptoms of depression and straight to loopy :-).

G' Day ANDREW: Mental illness is a very complicated place to be in at anytime. I reckon you're referring to the movie 127 hours which is supposed to be based on a true story? :-).

G' Day MAGS: Simon certainly wasn't the sharpest knife in the draw :-).

G' Day BEACH BUM: Absolutely :-).

G' Day TEMPO: I'd say his toes would be next on the menu :-).

G' Day RIVER: To us sane people it is gruesome indeed Yuk! :-).

G' Day RED: When your in a mental rage anything is possible :-).

He should start a church. Now, what to call it? Maybe the press-bite-ear-ians? Or the...
On second thoughts, he should join the Scientologists. When a new person joins, I hear they demand an arm and a leg!
