My younger cousin is casting around for names for his hipster band. They apparently want something a bit "edgy". Will suggest "Anus cupcake" to him tomorrow. Thanks, MetaFilter.

Suicide Stomach Contents Cocktail, with empty pill casings and a "shot of absinthe on the top will be reflective of the green hue of stomach bile". The most disgusting drink I've ever seen. Who is their target market, that pays £8 for this? I can barely look at the photo.

I know! I mean, £7.50, sure, but £8? NO WAY!

Yes, but do they have cakes of women going to the bathroom?

‘Urine’ cocktail will come in a sample bottle, and is also offered warm for those who are after an even more authentic experience and can stomach the added reality.

I really hope they'll have a urine flavour wheel handy.

I got all excited but then it turns out I went to the other medical pathology museum in London. Drat.

I like to think there's an anus cupcake at the end of the internet.

It's the cheapest drink in London so everyone just has to put up with it.

a special snowflake
landed on my anus cupcake
just as an earthquake
made a ripple in my milkshake
i was on my lunch break
right beside a Great Lake
i ate a corn flake
just for my own sake

you know, that anus cupcake is actually much less appetizing bc it's frosted with fondant. now THAT stuff is gross...

If the buttcake does not have chocolate filling I will dismiss the creators as having absolutely no artistic integrity whatsoever.

When I was a kid, these peach shaped cakes were a staple at church teas and bake sales. Most were filled with vanilla custard, but some used chocolate. Of course, the ones made by the local nonnas looked less Martha Stewart-y and more butt-y. Even without the chocolate, we already referred to them as peach bum cakes. With the chocolate it was just, ew.

Update, for completeness. Cousin and other band members went for "Mankini crotch stain" as their name in the end. I wish them good luck with getting bookings.

Anus Cupcake would have been much better than that.
