ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I see what you did there.
Whatever happened to L. Gaga’s meat dress anyway? I mean did anyone fry it up and eat it, or was it just left to rot out back of McDonald’s or something?
Meat purse. (squints) Is that some kind of euphemism?
yes, it is.
An art student in CA made it. http://www.foodiggity.com/chanel-purse-made-from-beef-jerky/
By Nancy Wu…..see ecouterre.com from 5-28….
I really don’t get this? why would the skin of an animal be any different then the meat itself? we think nothing of a leather purse over the arm on just about any woman on the planet… why would a “meat” one be any more out (or less) of place?

For a moment I thought the one who made it was inspired by this:
I’m guessing this is the same person, but the portfolio has nothing about meat purses.
The leather tanning process is very different (and chemically intensive) than the meat curing process. So there is a significant difference.
If you did that on purpose, it’s pretty funny. If it was unintentional… Genius!
Mmmm, Meat Purse… I think there are only two memes to top this, this week: Bacon Purse, and one made from the mummified flesh of Zombie Coco Chanel herself.
