Headline of the day: Mission Impossible star Cruise vows to eat placenta after birth.

“I’m gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I’m gonna eat the cord and the placenta right there.”

Hungry Freaks, Daddy…

    Jeesus H. Fucking Christ that is a gruesome looking cut of meat!!!
    I actually know a guy who ate some of his wife’s placenta – she gave birth at home in a wading pool, etc. I forget his appraisal of placenta-as-foodstuff, but seem to remember hearing from somewhere that it is a very tough chew. Maybe the stew recipe could be prepared in a crock pot.
    The precedent in nature for this is that some animals eat their placenta to make up for lost blood, and probably because they aren’t in the mood to track and kill prey.

    Yea, my cat friggin’ LOVED that stuff after she had a litter. She gobbled it up like it was Tender Vittles.
    I saw the placenta come out of my wife about 25 years ago. I am not a picky eater, but that pool of UDT isn’t appetizing at all.
