In an ‘Anything Goes’ Culture

Well anything goes.

The sub-headline really is all you need to read

A website advertising a new restaurant in Germany has called for humans to donate body parts for the menu causing outrage.

Its good that some people can still be outraged, its scary that some people think this is ok.

The online campaign by Flime in Berlin has called for diners to "donate any part of their body" as well as looking for an "open-minded surgeon".

However, politicians have condemned the restaurant for being a tasteless PR stunt according to Der Spiegel.

So far the location of the restaurant, if there is one, has not been disclosed.

"Members" willing to participate in the cannibal "Wari-culture" of the restaurant are asked to fill out a form.

It includes questions about medical fitness, Body Mass Index, how often one exercises and even if the donor is pregnant.

The restaurant claims to be inspired by the "compassionate cannibalism" of the Brazilian Waricaca tribe.

The website explains: "We see feasting as a spiritual act, in which the spirit and strength of the consumed creature is given to the guests."
