The song "Wrong Time" on Jandek's 1985 album "Nine-thirty" includes the line
"You can put your bloody mind in a paper bag and eat it for lunch". The
image you refer to was a sly reference to that - and arguably a somewhat
clumsy one, since "mind" and "brain" are hardly the same thing. I can see
how you interpreted it as you did, but it was merely an knowing nod to a
particularly bizarre and enigmatic lyric. I think this may be explained on
the commentary, though I haven't heard it for a while.
