This chef's got balls.

Mao Sugiyama, a self-described "asexual" from Tokyo, cooked up, seasoned and served his own genitalia to five diners at a swanky banquet in Japan last month, Calorie Lab reported.

In most cases, "asexual" is a word used to describe a person who is non-sexual. Sugiyama, however, embraces it as a way to show that he does not affiliate with either gender.

Sugiyama sparked a firestorm of interest on April 8 with one tweet:

"[Please retweet] I am offering my male genitals (full penis, testes, scrotum) as a meal for 100,000 yen …Will prepare and cook as the buyer requests, at his chosen location."
Just days after Sugiyama's 22nd birthday, the artist underwent elective genital-removal surgery, divvied up the severed penis shaft, testicles, and scrotal skin between five people, and garnished it with button mushrooms and Italian parsley.

1. Your link doesn't work.

2. All he could get for that is ¥100,000?

For reference, that's $1,250.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I would have insisted upon it being served flambé.

That is a lot of money for an appetizer...

He's Asian, so it obviously wasn't very good value for the money.

I just don't get why he cut off the shaft as well. I mean, sure, you're asexual, great, but how much more annoying is it for him to pee now? This is important.

Plus he didn't have his prostate removed. Half-assed effort buddy.

There are situations in which I'd do the same thing, but I just don't get this. A hundred thousand yen ought to be chump change for this sort of thing.

They found five people to split the dish at 20,000 yen apiece.  (~250 USD)

It was going to be split six ways originally, but the sixth person didn't show.

I was tempted to write that, but thought it would be too obvious a pun, even for this board. But of course it had to be done Smiley
