Placenta anyone? (http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2006170680,00.html)

Cruise: I'll eat placenta

TOM Cruise has claimed he will eat the PLACENTA after fiancée Katie Holmes has their baby.

The actor, 43 — who wants her to give birth in silence according to his Scientology cult rules — said: “I’m gonna eat the placenta, too.

“I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I’m going to eat the cord and the placenta right there.”

But when a GQ magazine interviewer said it would be a big meal, Cruise replied: “OK, maybe I won’t.”

What a moron. I've never, ever heard of anyone advocating that the male eat the placenta after birth. There are a few schools of birthing thought who think that the female should to combat post partum depression, but even that idea is fairly fringe.

For all you ever wanted to know about placentophagy (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=placentophagy&btnG=Google+Search).

You oughta cook it first.

Douchebag and Homosexual are usually the first 2 words I think of when I think of Tom Cruise but now......he's just ****in loony tunes.

This guy is out of his friggin mind. What a sick F%$&..... :loser:

You oughta cook it first.

I'd guess you'd want to use butter, lotsa garlic and other spices... try to get that "fois gras" texture.

I remember seeing folks preparing a placenta to eat on HBO's "Real Sex", series, and eating it on crackers.

I'd rather dine on Klingon delicacies.

Well....I think I'll put off eating breakfast for another hour or so...

04-18-2006, 06:01 AM
There are a lot of people that do that...eat placenta.

My midwife was into natural birth etc and wanted me to do that. I nearly vomited when I saw her putting hers in a blender to make a drink. She said that's what animals do. It supposed to be extremely nutritious and full of nutrients.

But women do all kinds of weird things with placentas, I found out when at the hospital....some plant them in the ground even.

I didn't do it...yuk!

Can you grow a placenta tree?

He could get some of those beans that Anthony Hopkins ate with liver.

After my first son was born my wife was extremely hungry as she hadn't eaten during her 26 hours of labor. I commented about how the placenta looked like a brisket. I went to the cafeteria and they just happen to have brisket on the menu.

It took her awhile to convince her that I was kidding when I told her that I had the cafeteria cook up her placenta......

Tom Cruise is the master of publicity stunts. He has a knack for keeping himself in the news in the months leading up to a movie release.

Tom Cruise, as a Scientologist, has supposedly achieved one of the higher rankings as of late. The reason why he has been spouting Scientology bullshit more lately is because he's supposed to be "spreading the word."

04-18-2006, 07:52 AM
According to my wife, this is not completely uncommon in Hispanic families (especially farther south). She's a pediatric nurse and her mom is from Mexico so take her word for what it's worth. As much as I dislike Cruise, I don't know if her deserves to be called a nutjob for this exactly (whole bunch of other things give him this title). I'm not sure why you would tell people about it though, probably fishing for more publicity. I can't shake the mental image of him, pale and ghoul-like, perched on the edge of a hospital bed, his face covered in blood and afterbirth, doing a Christopher Reeves from South Park. :Lin:

I have seen a cow do this, didn't look to apatizing.

You think Tom will eat it raw, laying out in a pasture next to a cow pie?

I have a funny story about a cow placenta and since this is the off-season, I'm going to tell it. Used to work for a computer company and a large number of our clients were feed yards, dairies or the beef packing plant. I go one one call to wirelessly connect the vet's shack with the main building at a dairy about 1 3/4 hours away. It was cold and windy (Kansas in the late fall) and the building containing the vet's shack was steel, of course. Also to keep the antenna out of the way I had to climb 15 feet in the air the drill holes and run the wires for the network. Now I'm not sure what happened but there was a pile of placenta about 2 feet from where the ladder had to be to do all this and, of course, the ranch hands were not in any hurry to remove it. So I spent 6 hours (the job had been bid wrong and didn't go smooth at all) stepping around and in a partially frozen combination of cow urine, feces, and placenta only to end up with an unfinished job that was going to require a return trip. One of the high points of my professional career.

I guess that Cruise's quote is a modification of the old saying,

"I'd eat a mile of her :shit: to see where it came from :shrug:

Of course not, he will lick it right off the baby like the cow did.

04-18-2006, 08:50 AM
Hogs will eat the placenta if you let them. They'll eat their young too if your not careful.

04-18-2006, 08:50 AM
Fry that bitch up with some hash and eggs! Mmmmmm placenta, yummmm.

I think you have to eat the placenta, because if you don't, it'll eventually form into a second baby that is an evil twin of your first baby and the two can be distinguished only by the fact that the evil baby wears Broncos gear.

I wonder... white or red?

I bet it depends on the race of the baby.

I wonder... white or red?

Don't forget the fava beans.

04-18-2006, 09:00 AM
mmm. Tastes great with a bottle of chianti and some faver beans..pfffft...pfffft...pfffft...

Hey, he may be a complete nutjob, but he is one hell of an actor!! :whackit:

Enjoy your fuggin breakfast tom!

04-18-2006, 09:12 AM
I just threw up in my mouth.

Ok, this is a prime example of why we need to limit the Internet. The fact that you scrapped this up from somewhere bothers me. Then you posted it. That acidic taste in my mouth won't go away.

04-18-2006, 09:18 AM
Somehow I knew that was coming from someone.

04-18-2006, 09:24 AM
I'm actually a little disappointed it took as long as it did.
