The idea for this gory brain food jello fruit salad came to me while I was flipping through a party store flyer and spotted a bag of bones.
All at once a light bulb went off in my head. Once I had the idea to use the skull as a bowl, the easy recipe ingredient list flooded my brain.
Make no bones about it, my brain works in strange and mysterious ways, as I think this gory brain food jello fruit salad for proves beyond a shadow of a doubt. Mwahahaha!
Since the bag of bones, I’d purchased was made out of hollow plastic, performing the surgery to remove the top of his skull was easy, with no anesthetic required.
All I used was a simple serrated bread knife to carefully saw off his cranium. The operation went off without a hitch, and before I knew it I was filling his head with all sorts of nonsense. LOL
Somebody STOP me!!
