Screaming food

Food that lets out a bloodcurdling wail when you bite into it

I have no idea how this would be accomplished, but I think it would be cool. Especially for Halloween candy.

       "Would we be so cavalier about cutting down trees, if trees could scream?   

       Maybe we would...if they screamed all the time, for no apparent reason."

       The oft quoted Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy featured a genetically engineered cow that gave out handy advice about which parts of it were best to eat. I suspect that this is easier to write about than actually achieve however.

       "Alice, mutton; mutton, Alice."   

       As it stands, this idea is entirely baked, although raw - certainly crude - there are many small animals that will wail and squeak as you eat them. Maybe you want to be a little more specific?

       I suppose the real problem is in finding something that screams but doesn't fight.
baf, Nov 07 2000
  

       Cruelty isn't deprecated in the spec, either. I was hoping baf would deprecate it. ("Tut, tut", for instance.)   

       It might be especially popular - among people who would eat wailing food in the first place - to have food that did fight, but ineffectually.

       All my food does that....it's not bad very entertaining....is that a bad thing?
beancrock, Nov 08 2000
  

       Well, this would probably help those who need to lose weight if eating becomes such an embarassing experience.

       Knockwurst cooking in a microwave emit some pretty awesome cries!

       And warming chicken livers for one's cats allows you to discover that they pop like popcorn and jump around in the microwave, and make an enormous mess...
StarChaser, Jan 18 2001
  

       StarChaser,   

       Why are you putting your cats in the microwave?
rachele, Jan 19 2001
  

       To dry them off...
StarChaser, Jan 20 2001
  

       Oh! Well, that makes sense.
rachele, Jan 21 2001
  

       <grins> Ask a silly question. 'warming chicken livers FOR the cats' in the microwave...

       You could just bake a whoopie cushion into your pie; but the pie will also "bake" some whoopie into you.

       As a kid I saw an episode of The Dark Side (or that other show that was just like The Dark Side) where a woman got ahold of a certain pair of glasses and a hearing aid. The hearing aid not only made her hear the food scream, but she could hear the poor little veggies' pleas for mercy. The glasses made the food look like the Fruit of the Loom gang--30ish bad actors in fruit suits and so forth. At the end of the episode the landlord and a cop broke into the apartment to find the woman (with requisite flies buzzing around her) face down on the table with her lips sewn shut (apparently she did it herself so she would be sure not to eat her new little friends). Needless to say, I attempted to become a Breatharian after seeing that.

       Susen, wasn't it in Glory Road: "It lay there on my plate, a little round creature--let's call it 'Elmer'--in some sort of sauce. Its eyes were still open. I picked it up on my fork and was ready to take a bite when... Elmer blinked. Suddenly I wasn't hungry anymore..."

       Try the above link to a real audio file for: "Carrot Juice is Murder" by the Arrogant Worms. "I've heard the screaming of vegetables...served on my table each night..."   

       If you haven't heard of them they are a distinctly Canadian comedy folk music group...absolutely awesome in concert.

       This would be good for halloween. Some unsuspecting kid pops a treat in his mouth and hears screaming every time he chomps down. I can just see the confusion and calamity that ensues.

       screaming knives and forks would have an effect - not sure quite what though

       How very macabre.

       Love Carrot Juice is Murder. Hilarious.   

       Can anyone e-mail me the entire song at desertfox161@yahoo.com? I would appreciate it.
DesertFox, Jun 21 2004
  

       What if you could make it scream once it was inside of you?
hobart2, Jun 21 2004
  

       I've heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)   

       Watching their skins being peeled (having their insides revealed)   

       Grated and steamed with no mercy (burning off calories)   

       How do you think that feels (bet it hurts really bad)   

       Carrot juice constitutes murder (and that's a real crime)   

       Greenhouses prisons for slaves (let my vegetables go)   

       It's time to stop all this gardening (it's dirty as hell)   

       Let's call a spade a spade (is a spade is a spade is a spade)
