It’s fair to say that some people become internet stars for highly unusual reasons – from a father who gives his children orders while dressed like Batman, to all those people who took part in the ice-bucket challenge, the internet is full of people grabbing their moment in the spotlight. However, the reason one insurance broker has earned his 15 minutes of fame might just make your stomach turn.
Ross Watson, an insurance broker from Darlington, has hit the headlines because of an interesting choice of meals – namely his wife’s placenta.
Watson posted pictures of himself on Facebook eating the blood soaked mound of organ and even filmed himself doing it offering a full commentary throughout. He placed the placenta alongside toast, bacon and beans to make it look like a full English breakfast – and even accompanied the meal with brown sauce and salt.
According to a report at goodtoknow.com, Watson has just become a father for a second time after his wife gave birth to a baby boy. Speaking to Mail Online
, he claimed that his wife was “disgusted but not surprised, as it’s me.”
Watson did not receive a particularly favourable reaction on Facebook, however. Most users replied in shock and repulsed at his activities with some branding him a “cannibal” and others informing him that he “needs his head checked”.
For what it’s worth, Watson claims the placenta “doesn’t taste of anything really”… as insightful as his actions are delightful.
