"But the feast didn’t seem all that bad — warm blood bisque infused with rose petals, blood gelato — and who knew that chilled, carbonated blood could be cruelty-free and willingly donated? “Note the citrusy finish. This one ate only tangerines for weeks.”"

From the True Blood: Beautifully Broken recap on TV Squad.

The leading man, Bill, was also served cruelty-free blood bouillabaisse and had… *ahem* Thai for the 2nd course.  I love when foodies cross over into the undead!

I’m guessing the best possible answer to this is probably not “I’d gnaw through my ankle and beat my firstborn with my severed foot.”  
I mean, what would you do?  I doubt you can beat that.  With a foot.

Wow.  Just… wow.
