Just What You’ve Been Waiting For: The Chocolate Anus

Look away, if you can!

Dear Mother of God, can it be true? Is it possible that there’s a chocolatier who actually uses the casting of an Unknown Woman’s Anus to make high-quality Belgian chocolate?

Yes, Dorothy, it’s true.

This is not a sponsored post and I lay the blame for this story upon the shoulders of one Jamie Lynne Grumet, who somehow manages to find the most outrageous stories online (let us not forget the woman dropping paint eggs out of her vagina to make art, Jamie. My eyes can never unsee that!)

This is what I discovered on the Edible Anus About Page:

“The Edible Anus first saw the light of day in 2006 when the London artist, Magnus Irvin, made a range of them in multi-coloured chocolate to present in an exhibition. It was at the ensuing show that he met and formed a partnership with Mr Ritzema, a tall man of Dutch descent. Since then the two of them have worked together to make the range of products available today.

Initially Mr Irvin tried to cast his own anus with messy and disastrous results. Whilst explaining his failure to a chance aquaintance at a bus stop he was gratified to find that his fellow bus passenger was willing to allow him to cast her anus. The job was done in just over half an hour later that afternoon and all subsequent anuses have been based on this casting. It is a matter of interest that the person who kindly donated her service has no idea that her anus has now gone global.”

I’m admittedly a little jealous of the Unknown Anus. I never really understood, until know, that my anus wanted to be famous. Sigh.

In any case, who would buy this shit?? (sorry, couldn’t help myself). Do you find a chocolate anus strange, whimsical or a crime against man?

    Thank you for this very timely post. I have a bit of a chocolate problem — this quite possibly has solved it for me!
