Would they still  'taste like chicken'?

In 1977, while working as a store clerk/delivery driver, I had about 1/4" of the tip of the middle finger on my left hand severed by the closing of a big steel door. A skin graft was done, and I wore a bandage that was almost as big as a boxer's glove.

A day or two later, during a family gathering, a relative attacked me, and I could do very little to fight back without causing quite a bit of damage, so he bested me.

Twenty-three years later, in 2000, I had surgery  to remove a small cancerous polyp from my colon. Two days later at another family gathering, this same relative again attacked me. 

He was on top of me, punching me in the face with his right hand and holding down my chin with his left. One of his fingers slipped inside my mouth so I bit down on it.

He stopped punching me, but brought criminal charges and a civil suit against me. It was a terrible time for me.

Sometime later, I was out to dinner with some friends. Upon hearing the story of me biting my relative's finger, one friend asked,

"Did it taste like chicken?"
