Creative Uses for Liver and Other Organ Meats

Updated on December 20, 2016

Liver Up!


I am a sucker for a challenge that makes one think of vile and disgusted things to write about. Maybe that is why I enjoy doing the Stan Fletcher Hub Challenge, to test my limits of creativity. (Which wont take much due to a burn out and major brain fart tonight.) I miss that man's challenges.

What are the creative uses for liver and other organ meats?

I think that depends upon whether one wants to eat the organs, or play with them. There are many creative uses for liver and other organ meats.

In my case, for this hub, it just depended upon what games one was planning on playing, or creating.

Here piggy, piggy!


The Fresh Pig Intestine Toss

For those wanting to participate in a match of intestine toss, it is best to use a fresh pig intestine. The first step is to wash it out making sure that the inside is clear of grit and grime. Then the intestine needs to be stretched to make sure it is free of water. Now it is read for a game of toss.

Pick your target. (It can be a tree or Grandpa.)

Swing the stringy wet rope above your head in a circling motion.

Once it gets a good momentum behind it, let go and watch it hit the target.

(Of course if it does hit Grandpa, be sure to run.)

This works well when having two teams of two people, each swinging the wet noodle through the air and watching it wrap around its target.

What would you eat, if you couldn't play with your meat?

The Heart Blowing Contest

There is the sport of the heart blowing contest.

Making sure there is a small pool of blood in the heart, cover the extra valves and give it a hard blow. If the blood floats to the top just right, it will create a bubble over the heart. The person with the biggest bubble wins.

Batter up!

Nut War with Rocky Mountain Oysters

Nut wars is a favorite past time with children. (Also referred to as Rocky Mountain Oysters)

Save the nut clipping from your pet goat when it is castrating day. Let them set out in the sun for a few hours to dry into small pebbles.

Take your pig intestines and a forked branch, and create a sling shot.

Now you are ready for Nut Wars!

Be sure to hide behind a wall or tree. Sometimes those little pebbles hold a stinging punch.

Buffalo Tongue Slapping Contest

The Buffalo Tongue Slapping Contest is a test of running skills and eye-hand coordination.

Each opponent will face off with a buffalo tongue. When the whistle is blown, they will run to each other to slap the tongue across an exposed body part. If proper contact is made, it should leave an abrasion from the roughness of the tongue. Continue this until one of the opponents gives up in pain.

Hacky sack with a frog, or poop squeezing fish are also popular games to play. Just think, when you are done playing with your meats, you can always eat it!

      I am ill with the thought of some of these. I worked for a vet when I was a teen and he would have me save the cat testicle's when we neutered them. He would have me put them in a little plastic bottle in the freezer. I asked him what he did with them and he said they were great fishing bait. The fish loved them.

      Then I got to thinking about that. If the cat loses his testicles, then the fish eats them, then the cat eats the fish; Does this make cats cannibals?

      I have to admit that I was burning through topics at a fairly fast rate and when I came across Stan's hubs I couldn't help but write about a few of them. I ended up writing 21 hubs in 30 hours to try and finish my challenge. I think in all there maybe four or five hubs on his contest. I kinda lost count after the paint fumes.

      I have to admit that I had a blast writing to see if I could meet my mark in the 30/30 challenge and how creative I could be with the Stan Fletcher contest.

      I seen he has some great enteries.

      Thanks! I am glad you enjoyed reading them.

      Stan is unfairly fueling your 30 day challenge. This is your third entry by my count. There seems to be a number of contest entries submitted by 30-day challengers unless they all belong to you. The ghoulish games should really catch on. Three cheers for your ingenuity.

      Thanks Peggy,

      My dad has given me so many inspirations for writing hubs. He has a great sense of humor most of the time. Some of the things he does will either make one run for the hills, or admire him.

      The throwing of the pig intestine is a true story. My nephews had just helped their grandpa butcher a pig and he gave them the guts to play with. One of the boys was throwing an intestine to the other and missed. It hit my dad in the chest instead. That began the game. To this day the boys roll around on the floor giggling about grandpa's reaction.

      That explains it...the hunting and fishing part. You seemed VERY familiar with those body parts. Haha! Funny hub! kind to your grandpa!

      Thanks, No Dad wasn't a butcher, but we did a lot of hunting and fishing growning up. My mother-in-law worked in a butcher's shop for a bit. I think she was the one that showed my dad how to process meat. As for my nephews, they are always looking for ways of being creative. I get a kick listening to some of their ideas. They love to be involved with my writing. I posted pictures of them on my Smores hub. You will have to check it out sometime.

      Now I'm a little scared, as it seems like you have some experience with each of these...Was your dad a butcher? Great hub! Rated up and funny...
