Some people take baking a little bit too far. And taxidermy. And helping out friends. Really, the title shows you how disturbed this short story will be.

Thoughts

This story is incredibly disturbing. And funny. And humorous. But mostly, just disturbing. After all, it’s about a man who decides that he really wants to try bone bread. And a creepy taxidermist. And really, when the opening paragraph is about how much the character loves dead things… you know that this is going to be kind of sick and twisted.

I loved the backdrop of Jack and the Beanstalk to this story and how it’s giant informs the gruesome tale that follows. Alright, it’s still incredibly sick and twisted, but it makes the story more fun. And far more twisted with the contortion of a well known fairy tale.
