Yucky Link: Blood Sausages Made From Human Blood

Two sergeants in the German air force are being accused of making traditional sausages using human blood instead. They were discovered when one of their fellow soldiers wanted to know if giving blood for sausage making was against regulations. I know I said I'd eat anything, but this sort of sounds like cannibalism to me. No thanks! — Telegraph

How can this notion even pop into someone's head?! There has to be a chip missing up there or something! Human blood?! APPALLING.

Why not donating blood if they don't know what to do with it?!

I've eaten black pudding or blood sausage before but it's always been made with animal blood. I can't help but be curious about why these guys decided that using pig blood (what's traditionally used)was not good enough and by what thought process they came about the idea to use human blood. The human blood part is just baffling really. And really, asking other people to donate? Unbelievable.

I don't see why it was illegal. They weren't coercing people into giving blood.

This reminds me of the trend where people make semiprecious stones with the remains of there incinerated "loved ones". I taught that was bad but what about this?! Also i think this proves to us that the admission for authoritative figures is not rigid enough (since it is not impossible to consume human blood, heck they did it in the Easter islands. BUT I believe it is illegal in Germany!).

At first I thought WTF, then I went well humans are animals too. In some cultures ingesting human blood is fine. And the Eucharist is a metaphorical ingesting of human blood and flesh - and that's far more disturbing to me. If I were on that base - I'd stick with salad until those cooks had a psychological evaluation to make sure that they aren't mentally imbalanced.
