This is disgusting and awesome.

I was just planning on hacking up the first arrivals and serving them to the other guests, but I guess this method will be more practical.

How does one dress as a rapist meat-eater for Halloween?

Best served with a nice glass of home-made fake blood.

"Since August I've had a post it note over my desk that simply said 'meat hand'."

I love that.

Meathand, open up your beef, open your turkey
Open up your lamb, never, never gonna lose it
Breadfan, baste it all away, never burn an inch
Gotta add some mint, gotta make me a meatloaf
Meathand, you got strong, some vegetarian's
Gonna vomit in the end, what a fool
Keg grill, roast it all the way, roast a bird, roast a man
Roast a ghost, cook what you wanna eat

Would it be more appropriate to serve Brain Shooters before the meal, or afterwards?

This is so much more disgusting than I expected it to be.

It's also called a Brain Hemorrhage, hippybear.

That's disgusting. Well done.

I saw this earlier (via slog) just as I was putting a slice of pizza in my mouth. Not a good combo.

I'm both moderately repulsed and strangely hungry. Surely someone can make fake blood out of ketchup, right?

Does anyone know where I can get a Ham Fist?

For dessert, Bloody Brain Pannacotta. Delish.

Dayum, between this and the "How to cook a steak" thread I'm so hungry I could eat a...meat.

Reminds me of a potluck I contributed to many years ago. The theme was edible art. The crowd had a fondness for "the dark side", so I thought what the hell, why not make use a fake severed hand I had lying around (a movie prop). I made a beef spaghetti sauce and just stuck the hand in. But something was missing so I added some green food coloring to the sauce to give it that "lying around rotting for a week" feel.

People hardly touched it. But it tasted fine.

I don't eat meat generally, but I'd eat this.

I once made a meat gingerbead-man. I mean, gingerbread men are cute, meat is good, so the two together?

Creepy. You make a guy out of dough, and he's all cute and you can still eat him without remorse.

But make him out of meat, and you're in the uncanny valley. The uncanny meat valley.

My family went vegetarian shortly after.

I was thinking of making one of these out of lentils or something, but I'm not spending $22.50 on a hand mold.

If it was made out of bacon it would be Best of the Web.

I love it when something that sounds like a great idea turns out in reality to be a great idea.

Nobody tell Natalie Portman about this.

This would go great with that Jeffery Dahmer costume...

It sounds better without the indefinite article:

"What's for dinner?"
"Meat Hand!"
"Yay!"

Of course, my brain just took Cat Pie Hurt's comment and made me realize, this is what it looks like when you actually cook and eat the Hamburger Helper hand.

Isn't it great? We get Natalie P.'s vegetarian essay this morning and within five minutes there's a 'how to cook a steak' post. Then the Meat Hand shows up!

I just had a Halloween baby shower this past weekend for my sister-in-law. Had I seen this before then, I totally would have found a mold for a baby and made a baby meatloaf that we could have eaten.

Apparently MetaFilter is an online haven for meat rapists.

That is much more disturbing than I expected.

in case it hasn't already been said ...

If God hadn't wanted us to eat animals, he wouldn't have made them out of meat.

Seeing the title "Hand of Fate" immediately made me think of this.

...I chose the worst time ever to go vegetarian. Mmm, hand.

That's just the meat hand of the market at work.

Let's not forget the thorax cake!

Don't forget SPAM, the marble of meats, easy to carve and whittle. A few Halloweens ago I made a fetus out of spam, and carried it around in a mason jar full of green Kool-aid. I think the party host's dog ate it near the end of the night, if drunken memory serves.

I have meat balls.

I want a lover with a meat hand,
I want a lover with a meaty touch,
I want somebody who will take some time,
Not come and go, in a greasy rush,
Vegetarians and vegans just don't understand,
I want a lover with a meat hand

Manos: the hands of meat?

Too much work. I'll probably stick with the tootsie roll-grapenuts cereal faux kitty litter.

One recipe I'm trying this year is Scary Finger Cookies. (Caution: Halloween sound effects.)
posted by ObscureReferenceMan at 6:21 AM on October 29, 2009


Oh yeah, I wish I was a better cook, because it would be blast to do a much more extensive corpse; hand, arm, shoulder, torso and head, and serve it to the neighbor kids.

I'd either be the coolest guy on the street, or that weirdo that got arrested while everyone was trick-or-treating.

Not to be confused with a house made of veal.

Alternatively, you could just serve them offal. A nice heart, some liver, a few kidneys, cow's brains, chitterlings, tripe, black pudding, etc.

Why feed them fake stuff when you can freak them out by serving the real thing?

I tried making these hands yesterday. Unfortunately, since I had no kitchen stocked with meat, I had to make do with mashed potatoes, rice, and beans instead. I also wish I had a plastic hand mold somewhere...
