No Not Brains, Cauliflower – Berlin Cannibal Restaurant a Hoax

A couple weeks back I wrote an article about a restaurant in Berlin that wanted to serve donated human body parts as a delicacy. The restaurant Flime turned out to be flimflam.  This hoax was perpetuated by a German vegetarian organization. 

During the press release last Thursday officials from this organization said it was actually a stunt to promote eating cauliflower, not human calves.  In fact the main point of the stunt was that eating animals should be just as stomach turning as consuming human flesh.

Although the group is happy with how the gag ended, lots of people are still very upset.  Even an official from a Brazilian town called Guajara-Mirim said he wants to sue the creators of the Flime website.  The site falsely claimed another one of these restaurants were located in the Amazonian town.  The official said that this act dismembered the town’s tourisms friendly image.

This disgusting joke was thought up a year ago by an ad agency called Serviceplan and the vegetarian group participated.  The agency placed fake ads in German newspapers in which they asked people to donate their limbs.  They also started up a website where people could fill out a donor sheet where questions about the individual were asked and submitted.  They even set up a fake eBay auction for a plate of liver, which ended up being yanked for the site, but not before reaching $1,000.

Having been an active investigator of the paranormal for 12 years with several different Toledo based teams, he has examined countless claims of activity. But years worth of research and investigation proved to him that the evidence for these claims are generally lacking and, furthermore, the vast majority of so-called scientific paranormal investigators were using improper methodologies which caused them to draw both false and misleading conclusions.
