Yahoo Image Search

Welcome to the magical butcher shop.  Take a number and look around to see what you would like.  As you can see, we’re crowded, but move quickly.  Every product has a clear explanation of its effects and a disclaimer.  Also, make sure to cook all meat thoroughly to avoid food poisoning.

  • Ground Beef– Able to fire fleshy balls from fingertips.  Can result in temporary bone hands.
  • Chicken–  Able to discern the ingredients of everything you eat, except chicken.
  • Pork Loin– Enhanced sense of smell and a temporary twisty tail.
  • Venison– Nose glows red and you gain the ability to fly.
  • Bison–  Super strength, but fingers and toes become hooves.
  • Sausage– Fire breath levels depend on spiciness.  Flatulence is a side effect.
  • Lamb–  Sprout fancy wool from body, but will be chased by a blonde girl until power subsides.
  • Veal–  You monster!
  • Turkey– Expand body like a balloon, but intelligence falls to dangerous levels.
  • Hasenpfeffer– Super jumping ability.  Will be terrified of anything that may eat a rabbit, including humans.
  • Ostrich– Super speed.  Gain lots of weight, but its just fluffiness that will disappear after powers are gone.
  • Elk–  Sonic call that can shatter glass and summons all deer in a 50 mile radius to your location.
  • Wild Boar– Monster form and total rampage.  Popular at weddings.
  • Ham–  Natural acting ability is granted.  Will cause an unsightly rash in sensitive places.
  • Caribou– Unending stamina.  If eaten during certain times, you will migrate to the north.
  • Pheasant– Change color of hair and skin.  Nose feathers . . . Need I say more.
  • Kangaroo– Develop a pouch in stomach for storage.  Only side effect is things inside will be stuck in body if not removed before time is up.
  • Alligator–  Hold breath underwater for up to an hour and increased swimming ability.  Very dry skin for a week.
  • Emu–  Enhanced kicking ability and a strong desire to hurt everyone you see.
  • Squirrel–  Can climb anything, but always forget where you put things.  This includes where you put your children.
  • Bear–  Ability to sleep for an entire night without needing bathroom.  If too much is eaten at once, you will hibernate.  (Currently unavailable.)
  • Moose–  Grow giant antlers and the muscles to wield them.  Doorways are a problem.
  • Snake–  Body can bend into any shape, but only works when naked.
  • Racoon–  Now we’re just getting too silly.
  • Human–  Get out.

    Fun, Charles. It would be nice to eat bear, I think, since a solid night’s sleep would be wonderful. However, I bet I’d have terrible breath afterward.

    More laugh out loud moments. The ostrich was the one that really got me! 😁 😆 😅


  3. These were great, Charles.


  4. It would be so nice to sleep all night without getting up. Ah, to be young again…
