On the more disturbing side of "entertainment" food consumption......(not for the weak stomach)

The thread or topic below is truly disturbing to me but while thinking about it brought back a memory of something I saw in a movie one time. I wanted to know if any of you remember it and if in fact this was factual either at the time or even today.

Does anyone remember the movie "Faces of Death" it was popular in the early to mid 80's and it was a gruesome assortment of videos mostly of people meeting untimely demises which were caught on tape.

However this link reminded me of one video in the movie which was a Latin American restaurant I believe, where the patrons sat around a table which was actually a cage......and placed in the cage was a monkey....the monkeys head was secured in an opening in the middle of the table and each person at the table was given a small hammer or mallet which they used to bludgeon the animal and then immediately eat it's brain.

Do any of you remember that? The video in the link below (DO NOT WATCH IF YOU DON"T HAVE A STRONG STOMACH) brought back the memory of that movie and now as an adult am wondering if that could have truthfully been real. If so I have no idea for the life of me how someone could find that entertaining or acceptable just like eating the frog in this video. Yes, I know all animals are slaughtered for our consumption. Read the thread below for my comments/feelings.
