Brains, Legs, Snot, Body Parts, Oh My!
HAUNTED WOODS – There are many wonderful and exotic foods in Neopia, but there
are a certain group of foods that are plainly gross and disgusting. This particular
group of foods include (surprise, surprise) gross foods, body parts, snot,
dung and many others. Many Neopets would turn away at the thought of Toe Nail
Soup, Maggot Stew, Crunchy Snotball, Lice Rice or Dr. Backwash.
If you think those foods are disgusting, think about what happens to the lone
Neopet who wanders too far from Neopia Central at night.
“Moonlight sneaks through gaps in the trees, the wind howls in agony, making
the trees dance. He hears a howl, and jumps in fright. Something is approaching
him…fast. The Neopet starts running, but it is too late. He is never seen again…or
What happens to that poor neopet? Nobody is certain, but it’s possible that
he has been taken by something evil, or perhaps taken to the pound by Dr Death.
Dr Death takes care of the pets in the pound – the unloved pets. He has been
driven mad by the heartlessness of some Neopians. Some of the Neopets in the
pound find caring owners who give them hope. Others live in despair, not knowing
whether they will ever be loved. It is important for all Neopians to help these
poor Neopets and give them hope. You will find out why soon.
Unloved and lost pets are usually taken to the pound, but what about the ones
“They are never seen again…or are they?”
The evil denizens of Neopia lurk, waiting for innocent Neopets to come by.
They strike and the Neopets are never seen again. That is, if the neopet comes
across someone like Meuka. However, what if they come across the path of a little
Edna the witch is notorious for brewing foul and evil potions. Locked in her
tower at night, she is always busy thinking of new recipes. Too busy, in fact,
that she has to get help from Neopets to get her ingredients!
But what else does Edna do besides brewing potions? The following descriptions
may give you an idea.
“Oh no, how horrible... looks like this particular Meerca bounced too close
to the Witches home!” - Meerca Pie.
“What goes bounce...bounce...whirr... splat?” – Blumaroo Steak
“I don’t think the Grundo who became this meal did it willingly…” –
“No, you can’t seriously make pies out of petpets... can you?” – Octornapie
I think you get the drift. What Edna does in her tower is not all potion brewing.
Edna is also doing something more sinister. She captures unloved Neopets from
around Neopia and turns them into Neopet foods, most of which are sold cheaply
to the Spooky Food Shop.
A list of the Neopet foods is at the bottom of this article. Most of those
are Spooky foods, which means Edna is responsible for the making of them. However,
three of those foods are Medieval – 2 of them cheese and the other Beef Jerky.
Beef Jerky may not be made from a Neopet but is highly likely. A further two
are Tyrannian foods – Buzz honey and Stick-O-Mynci. Buzz Honey may not seem
harmful to Buzz’s, but there could well be a Buzz honey farm where they rip
out Buzz’z wings.
A further two are Normal foods (Grundo Stix and Mynci Mushroom Soup).
A lot of the foods in Neopia mention specific body parts, such as toe and eye.
Where do these body parts come from? They must come from those poor Neopets
who get turned into the foods mentioned above…and perhaps any other poor neopet
that happens to wander too close to Edna’s den.
There are also many meats in Neopia that don’t specify a species. For example,
some foods have pork, but many others just don’t say what animal or neopet the
meat is from. Those are the mystery meat foods.
“The most frightening thing about this sandwich is where Edna got the meat
from…” – Mystery Meat Sandwich
Since she already slaughters unfortunate Neopets who happen to cross the wrong
path, Edna would not just throw the rest of the body away.
The meat from the Neopets will most likely end up in foods like the sandwich.
Other body parts are also not wasted: Eye Candy, Mashed Eye Potato, Tongue with
Veggies, Parts on a pizza, Intestines with Marinara, Pickled Eyeballs, Eyeball
Slurpy, Knuckle Sandwich are just some of the other foods that Edna puts spare
body parts in.
It’s not only food that contains body parts. Some other items of Neopia also
contain have body parts, such has Battledome items. An example of one of these
is ‘Eye of Mortog’.
If you are totally outraged and disgusted by the cruelty going on in Neopia,
it is definitely worthwhile to check out NOPE, Neopians Opposed to Pet Eating,
a group whose purpose is to ban all Neopet foods. They are a small group of
Neopians who are horrified by Edna’s cruelty, and have decided to put an end
to it. To find it, check out hituro or jayed’s lookup.
After reading this article, think how lucky your Neopet is. He or she has an
owner to look after him, someone to love him. Make sure you take good care of
your pet. If you’re ever thinking of abandoning your pet, think about what will
happen to him. He may get unlucky and find himself in an unpleasant situation.
We can safely say that no lone Neopet or Petpet is safe from Edna’s evil. Make
sure that your Neopet is well loved and is kept indoors at night…now, where
did my Zafara go???

Feel free to Neomail me about this article – your opinions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks to jayed for letting me mention the NOPE guild and petition.
In this article, I have referred to Neopets as he or him. Please don’t pelt
me with rotten tomatoes because of that! Referring to the Neopet as he just
saves the trouble of writing he/she all the time.
You can also contact me about any aspect of Neopets – I’ll try to help out
