The more worrying part is that there is actually quite a following of people who are all for the celebratory 'gobbling up' of the placenta after the birth. I believe Tom Cruise was a firm advocate of the ritual and I believe he even held a "Placenta Party" after Katie Holmes gave birth! More so in USA than here in UK, but if you look it up, you will find many references to placenta parties.
What's on the menu tonight? P & Chips, P Curry, P Lasagne?
