  • It would be interesting to see images and information about the people you ordered the meal.

  • Morbid and beautiful at the same time. I really liked the way you took all the pictures, all these divine symmetry… It really provides food for thought

    Thanks for showing this J.Reynolds
    It really goes beyond their food selection.
    As morbid as it sounds, this would be great in a gallery.

  • only one of eight was meal. These indicate a desperate attempt at very minimal comfort. Ice cream, smokes, and soda.

    The better question is when do we get beyond murdering our own for good reason or bad?

  • great idea..very disturbing..and coke advertising at the same time..

  • So that’s what it all comes to…six bottles of coke and a cream cracker…disturbing and thought-provoking.
