Taking 'gross' to another level, two artists have created 'human cheese' which is basically cheese made up using bacterias from different parts of famous people.
Okay, you have to be 50 shades of CRAY to think of something like this but what can I say, bizarre is the new IT THING. So far, 2019 has been one hell of a ride when it comes to all things weird but I think we might have just found the most DISGUSTING one yet, which will probably ruin cheese for you, forever.
Who doesn't love treating themselves to cheese and wine every now and then? But hey, in case you wanna spice things up you can now buy cheese out of people's belly button...okay, you can go ahead and puke.
Not just ANY people though, you can procure this latest gourmet from your favorite celebrity's nose, armpits, and belly button. Two artists called Christina Agapakis and Sissel Tolaas came up with the brilliant...erm...new idea and decided to make cheese out of humans and ruin it for everybody else. And, if you must know, the bacteria is first taken out and then preserved for years before turning it into cheese. Thanks, I hate it.
Currently, the cheese is being made out of five celebrities' dirt bacteria who agreed to um, do such a THING. Cheese made from Rapper Professor Green, chef Heston Blumenthal, musician Alex James, Bake Off contestant Ruby Tandoh and Suggs from the band Madness is now up for buying. The chef duo behind this blasphemous creation has also created cheese from David Beckham's dirty, sweaty shoes, just FYI.
People are grossing out over the idea but some artists are actually calling it a genius creation. "I know it sounds disgusting but really it's quite clever, not all bacteria is bad bacteria. Even the cheese you see in the shops comes from bacteria. Granted, it isn't made from human bacteria but I think this is a fun way of trying something a little bit different. I wouldn't necessarily say to try this at home, but it definitely shows the fun that can be had with food if you are willing to step outside the box," cheesemaker and food writer, Rosie Cotton told DailyStar.
Since this is pretty much the grossest thing humans have discovered, the human cheese is currently a part of an exhibition in London's Victoria and Albert Museum. The multiple varieties you can buy human cheese are Cheshire cheese, comté, mozzarella, cheddar, and stilton, a lot to choose from. The cheese, however, is currently not available for human consumption and was just meant as a way to reframe microbes, bless the lord.
Sure, the idea is disgusting but hey, come to think of it - there are people out there who do major weird shit like drinking their own pee to 'cure' themselves of god knows what. Plus, the pop culture is WILD and die-hard fans are willing to do anything they can to come closer to their favorite stars. They wouldn't mind eating cheese made from their favorite actor/actress' body parts...the world is a strange place.
A woman just asked Keanu Reeves if she can make Human Cheese out of the material in his belly button and toes.— Bram the hedgehogderoff (@ReelBramz) January 11, 2015
