can i have brown sauce?

John Dope Assos (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 7 November 2015 12:41 (five years ago) link

condiments, accompaniments, recipe &c entirely up to you

Tell The BTLs to Fuck Off (wins), Saturday, 7 November 2015 13:53 (five years ago) link

i'm finding this idea grosser than i initially thought i wd and i'm not sure whether it's the idea of consuming bits of myself or the idea of consuming human blood that's off-putting because i do love pigs' blood no question

John Dope Assos (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 7 November 2015 13:57 (five years ago) link

Wouldn't this be like drinking your own urine?

Does anyone know the Klingon for T'ai Chi? (snoball), Saturday, 7 November 2015 14:27 (five years ago) link

It would, if you drink the urine of other animals. Otherwise, no.

Tell The BTLs to Fuck Off (wins), Saturday, 7 November 2015 16:32 (five years ago) link

with the question as it stands i guess i wd have to answer "i would" but i feel like the qualifiers "willingly" and "with relish" shd've made an appearance as options somewhere

John Dope Assos (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 7 November 2015 17:33 (five years ago) link

I already said you could pick your condiments

Tell The BTLs to Fuck Off (wins), Saturday, 7 November 2015 17:57 (five years ago) link

Making such a sausage would be utterly pointless and foolish. But once it was made I can't see any valid reason not to eat it myself. After all, people will suck the blood from a cut on their own finger and not think twice about it.

Aimless, Saturday, 7 November 2015 18:03 (five years ago) link

aimless raises a maybe crucial point: would it make a difference to voters if a no vote meant such a sausage would be eaten by someone else? would it matter who?

Yes, as a vegetarian it would make a nice alternative to soya.

Al Ain Delon (ShariVari), Saturday, 7 November 2015 19:07 (five years ago) link

Nutritionally speaking, it would be a net loss, because cooking the sausage would destroy some nutrients.

Aimless, Saturday, 7 November 2015 19:25 (five years ago) link

nobody needed that explained to them

Tell The BTLs to Fuck Off (wins), Saturday, 7 November 2015 19:26 (five years ago) link

you're right. seems like common knowledge.

Aimless, Saturday, 7 November 2015 19:32 (five years ago) link

regular blood or menstrual blood?

sarahell, Saturday, 7 November 2015 20:10 (five years ago) link

see "recipe" clause above

Tell The BTLs to Fuck Off (wins), Saturday, 7 November 2015 20:22 (five years ago) link

I think I would (if not, it would be to avoid having needles stuck in me rather than grossout factor) but that picture on the BBC News article is the exact opposite of enticing

It looks like you would have to cook at a very high temperature to eradicate any blood diseases.

Yerac, Friday, 2 March 2018 17:26 (three years ago) link

But if it is your own blood, surely it is safe to re-infect yourself with your very own native blood diseases, as opposed to nasty foreign ones.

I don't think you need to worry about transmitting diseases to yourself? iana haematologist tho

Oh, I think I was thinking of Marcos'/a stranger's blood.

Yerac, Friday, 2 March 2018 17:31 (three years ago) link

dont worry my blood is clean

marcos, Friday, 2 March 2018 17:32 (three years ago) link

mark s, Friday, 2 March 2018 17:38 (three years ago) link

hell yeah

the theory that eating something that's already come out of yourself can't harm you seems fairly easy to disprove

I eat my own blood forever.

is this going to be like women eating their own placenta thing?

F# A# (∞), Friday, 2 March 2018 22:32 (three years ago) link

I've now devised a really good performance art piece based on this idea that touches on scottish national identity and biopolitics. just need to fart out an artist's statement. here's the idea:

Name of piece: Man is the pie that bakes and eats himself

I take the stage, on which there is a doctor's office bed (which i lay on) and small worktop with a hot-plate, a chopping board, some cutlery, a plate etc., and the ingredients to black pudding that are not blood and fat - oatmeal, onion etc.

Medical professionals come in with their various apparatuses and proceed to give me liposuction and to collect some of my blood.

I then use some of the fat and blood to make black pudding

then i eat it.

the end

I agree with that. maybe two paychecks.

not sure. I mean I eat black pudding, would it really be that different?

Anti-Cop Ponceortium (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 4 September 2020 23:22 (one year ago) link

i would probably do it

contorted filbert (harbl), Saturday, 5 September 2020 00:05 (one year ago) link

how big is this sausage?

CP Radio Gorgeous (Colonel Poo), Saturday, 5 September 2020 00:07 (one year ago) link

I would not


Wait, what? This is a lie. Of course I would.

Yerac, Saturday, 5 September 2020 00:09 (one year ago) link

watched a video of a British dude making blood sausage, seriously felt like throwing up when he started pumping it through the casing or whatever 🤢

brimstead, Saturday, 5 September 2020 00:23 (one year ago) link

black pudding owns

especially when you eat it with halloumi

scampo italiano (gyac), Saturday, 5 September 2020 00:29 (one year ago) link

i like all blood sausage types but the asian ones. I think I prefer it softer and less spice? Now I feel like I need to analyse this while I can.

Yerac, Saturday, 5 September 2020 00:39 (one year ago) link

I've only had black pudding a couple of times but I feel like I perhaps haven't had good black pudding, it was at a greasy spoon caff in Walthamstow, and it was... OK? but not really much to write home about. tasted kind of rusky.

CP Radio Gorgeous (Colonel Poo), Saturday, 5 September 2020 00:51 (one year ago) link

If you can get hold of some Clonakilty, i think you’ll like it. Weirdly it’s made from beef rather than pork. Might be sold near you! https://www.clonakiltyblackpudding.ie/united-kingdom/?radius=9999

scampo italiano (gyac), Saturday, 5 September 2020 09:43 (one year ago) link

most black pudding I've had is really nothing special, there's this scottish mini black pudding you can get in sainsbury's which is pretty good though.

Anti-Cop Ponceortium (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Saturday, 5 September 2020 10:14 (one year ago) link

You bite your lip, you taste your own blood, what's the difference?

Guayaquil (eephus!), Saturday, 5 September 2020 14:24 (one year ago) link

The difference is that the sausage is more delicious

gyac, i found an irish butcher grocer that is somewhat near that I will check out. they do those irish breakfast sandwiches too it seems.

Yerac, Saturday, 5 September 2020 15:38 (one year ago) link

Nah. I like blood sausage but not that much.

pomenitul, Saturday, 5 September 2020 15:40 (one year ago) link

if you used one's own blood in a vegan sausage that would probably be best use.

it is kinda funny to think you'd be more comfortable eating a sausage made from someone else's blood than your own
