As if those of us who tramp the streets of London don’t have enough to contend with, news reaches me this week of a pop-up restaurant that is trying to lure customers with a burger which is supposed to taste like and have the texture of human flesh.
The product of the fevered imagination of a so-called freelance creative known for her macabre food concoctions and launched to coincide with the start of the fifth series of the TV show The Walking Dead, it seems a tasteless stunt on so many levels, even more tasteless than the normal burger.
The question has to be asked – how do they know that it tastes like human flesh? And should we be worried if they have little flags with names written on them?
You have been warned!
