In some strange part of the world, this is probably considered a delicacy.
The ‘Cthuken’ was created by Texas Database Administrator Rusty Eulberg, and named after an octopus-headed monster envisioned by American author H.P. Lovecraft. Chicken stuffed with cooked octopus tentacles are garnished with crab legs and bacon to resemble a single, horrific creature. Just look at it:

‘[I] wanted to do something unique for Christmas dinner with friends of ours… we went and bought some crab legs and some octopus and bacon and cooked them all separate and slapped them together on a plate, and that was it. Eulberg told The Gothamist. ‘The universal reaction was, ‘Oh my God, I couldn’t eat that.’
And if you still have any appetite left, the plate the food is sitting on ‘is an old Nazi plate with a Swastika on the bottom that a friend bought in an old abandoned Luftwaffe base in Germany.’
Perhaps the plate is fitting – the food looks almost as vile.
