Eat Your Head
February 23, 2010 4:45 AM   Subscribe

There are many ways to eat your own head. You could start from the inside out, then maybe wrap your face around your neck. Or you could try a more convoluted approach with an elaborate use of the tongue. You could eat your own head one piece at a time. Whether or not you have a natural talent for self-cannibalism, do your very best with your face.

The main thing, though, is just to always follow B. Kliban's sage advice...

When I'm done with breakfast and properly caffeinated I shall return here and very likely enoy this. But not while I'm eating.

Much to his Mum and Dad's dismay
Horace ate himself one day.
He didn't stop to say his grace,
He just sat down and ate his face.
"We can't have this his Dad declared,
"If that lad's ate, he should be shared."
But even as he spoke they saw
Horace eating more and more:
First his legs and then his thighs,
His arms, his nose, his hair, his eyes...
"Stop him someone!" Mother cried
"Those eyeballs would be better fried!"
But all too late, for they were gone,
And he had started on his dong...
"Oh! foolish child!" the father mourns
"You could have deep-fried that with prawns,
Some parsley and some tartar sauce..."
But H. was on his second course:
His liver and his lights and lung,
His ears, his neck, his chin, his tongue;
"To think I raised him from the cot
And now he's going to scoff the lot!"
His Mother cried: "What shall we do?
What's left won't even make a stew..."
And as she wept, her son was seen
To eat his head, his heart, his spleen.
And there he lay: a boy no more,
Just a stomach, on the floor...
None the less, since it was his
They ate it - that's what haggis is.

I was expecting there to be a Plymptoon of a guy eating his head in the post, but at least I'm getting to spend some time chasing around through the Plymptoon archives on google and youtube looking for it.

Which way to the auto-cephalivore fetish board?

Igli
Large, troll-like golem designed to prevent travellers from entering Nevia Valley. Not too bright and easily offended, he was goaded into attacking Oscar Gordon headlong and was destroyed by shoving his foot in his mouth until he'd swallowed himself and disappeared.

Does it count if you had help?

While still I approve of things eating things, I am somewhat concerned by this.

Clicking around the links led me to the wikipedia page on geophagy, source of the following gems:

...Non westerners see dirt and clay as natural crucial elements of the world with symbolic features. This sharply contrasts the western view of dirt as impure and contaminated...

...An ability to control appetite coupled with eating seldomly was the appropriate measure of behavior in a "civilized' American culture. Engaging in and acting upon a craving for dirt was considered uncivilized because it was seen as having a lack of self-control...

...While the marketing of dirt in its original form would most likely not sell in the American market, geophagy may have a possible future if companies break up the dirt into its components...

You could start with your eyes, but they may attempt to defend themselves.
