This may be one of the most tasteless things that I’ve posted on my blog, but it made me laugh for most of yesterday and a good deal of today, and it’s talking about current events, so it’s always fun.
Apparently Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home is for sale, and has been up for sale for a while now. And while that’s entertaining enough, apparently PETA considered buying the house and turning his house into a vegan restaurant.
Immediately upon hearing that there were plans for turning it into a restaurant, my first thought was about asking people if they would want to eat there. When I asked my co-workers if they would want to eat there, their reactions ranged from complete disgust to morbid curiosity.
Personally, I think the Dahmer House Bar and Grill has a nice ring to it, and I’d love to eat there. Beyond the novelty of simply having a restaurant there, think of the marketing ideas. Who wouldn’t want a t-shirt that says “I had dinner at Jeffrey Dahmer’s house.”
I think you could go a little further with it, turn it into a sort of theme restaurant as well. Put liver and onions on the menu, sweetbreads (thymus gland or pancreas), chitterlings (intestines, usually pig), or haggis.
I know I wouldn’t be the only one interested in eating there, and I’m sure there are plenty of other people with a sense of humor as dark as mine who would have to make at least one trip there. So how about you? Would you eat there? And while I’m on the subject, do you have anything you would add to the menu?
