" A plant-based company called Oumph! produced a burger they said tastes like human flesh.
The company advertised the Human Meat Plant-Based Burger around Sweden last year during Halloween.
"No humans were injured in the development of this product," the company said.
For more stories, go to www.BusinessInsider.co.za.
A plant-based meat brand decided to take an unusual — and cannibalistic — route to sway people to try their product.
European company Oumph! developed the Human Meat Plant-Based Burger — a burger they say tastes just like people — for those willing to indulge in fake human flesh.
"We developed this burger in no time as soon as we knew what taste and texture we were after," Oumph! Co-Founder Anders Linden said in a YouTube video.
During Halloween last year, the company set up a food truck in Stockholm, Sweden, serving the "scariest plant-based food ever." The company released a short advertisement, complete with a sinister voiceover depicting dark scenes in a kitchen as a a chef develops the human-based meat. The commercial then dares people to try it. ...
those crazy Swedes chortle chortle.


But
Ok sooo, How exactly would someone eating it be able to tell that it's not real human flesh.
I mean, without taking it to a lab?
BTW...How exactly did they determine what the flavor should be?

Magnus Söderlund did not propose or advocate cannibalism as a solution to climate change during a Sept. 3 interview on the Swedish television channel TV4. Rather, he explained that his research into the issue was intended to provoke thought and gauge where audiences would "draw the line" in their willingness to consume various kinds of meat. -snopes

And your inability to recognize that some "too weird to be true"" headlines aren't.

why is that salt?

Since this guy is so "non-representative"

And FYI the Church help created Western Science from the dark ages forward.
Before Christianity came from the Middle East Europeans were worshiping all kinds of BS, evil spirits, drinking each others blood from skulls, sacrificing their children to the 'gods', witchcraft and various kinds of paganism from the Mediterranean Sea to the Vikings in the far north.... Including Cannibalism

Here's some history for you to consider.

yes the church had people held and condemned for views that countered their own. read about it if you haven't already.
someone decides to dispute the truth and if it fits you narrative, you're all in.

Wow, Ok So what did really mean when he said in the interview that
"people can be tricked into making 'the right' decisions"
&
"he'd be open to tasting it"?

The question is, would Democrats eat Donald Trump if they had the chance?
