Eating human flesh? You can’t do that on television! Unless it’s Dutch TV and you and your co-host just go for it. Sorry, Fear Factor, but with these two around you’re going to have to kick the gross factor up a notch.
On their Dutch television show Proefkonijnen, which translates as Test Rabbits, hosts Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno try to answer life’s tougher questions, such as, can you shave with ketchup? One universal, nagging question they wanted to answer? What does human flesh taste like? As two consenting adults eager to whip up some ratings, they hired a surgeon to shave off a slice of buttocks (Storm) and stomach (Zeno) and had a chef fry them up. “The chef cooked it in a frying pan with sunflower oil,” Storm told ABC News. “We didn’t add any salt or pepper because we wanted to know what it tasted like.” No word on whether they were served with fava beans and a nice chianti, though. The duo then looked into each others’ eyes and ate each others’ flesh on television.
The story has garnered a lot of international attention for a previously unheard of Dutch show. For Storm, that makes it all worth it. “It was just a few centimeters of meat,” he said. “And now I have a good story about that scar.” And we have a good story about the decline of western civilization.

Sweden - A new paradise for Romani beggars 2015-03-30 17:33
Thanks to the European Union and freedom of movement that follows with membership Sweden has been flooded with gypsies from Eastern Europe.
Most member states have cracked down hard on the phenomenon of organized begging with legislation and forceful evictions so the Romani (colloquially known as Gypsies) who are engaged in this venture have moved their business to the country where ...
Increased tax subsidies for politically correct media 2015-03-29 22:08
On Dec 9 last year I translated a random snapshot of the biggest newspaper in Sweden. The headlines alone spoke for themselves. It was, simply put, an orgy of political correctness, obvious attempts at emotional manipulation and general national self-loathing. In other words, a typical Swedish newspaper on any given day.
As more and more readers are waking up to the ...
