I was grating potatoes to make hash browns for breakfast and clipped my knuckles on the grater. They instantly welled up with blood and I threw the grater in the sink and ran my hand under the water. Then I looked at the massive pile of grated potatoes and faced a difficult choice. Do I throw out the entire plate since there might be a chunk of my knuckle in that pile, or do I cook the potatoes and hope for the best? I took the top layer off the pile and threw it away, then fried up the rest. I'm pretty sure I got the knuckle out in the part I threw away. That said, if you ate breakfast at my house recently, you should keep a close eye out for any signs that you're developing a taste for human flesh.
