These Vegans Cooking And Eating E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Will Ruin BBQ For You

Who doesn’t love E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial? I love E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. You love E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Steven Spielberg and the late Melissa Mathison’s 1982 classic was nominated for nine Oscars, including Best Picture, and American Film Institute named it the 24th greatest film of all time. So, yeah, everyone loves E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial… except people from Sweden.

They spit-roasted that adorable little alien.

“Eating E.T.” is a “hands-on exploration of our intimate relations to other species, real and fictional” held at the Pufendorf Institute in Sweden. The mission of the project, from Terje Östling and Unsworn Industries, a design firm, is to discuss “what would it feel like to eat an alien? How can we dearly love and grieve some non-human species while accepting the industrialized slaughter of others?” Also, to eat an all-vegan E.T.

A life-size, gluten replica of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, roasted whole on a spit and eaten together at festive social events, provokes discussions and questions on what is a stake in our practices of eating. (Via alienbbq)

As a child, I wondered who’d win in a fight, Batman or Superman (the answer: not movie fans), but one thing I never considered was, what does E.T. taste like? I’m guessing chicken, Reese’s Pieces and garbage.
