TruthInTelevision, although [[DontTryThisAtHome it isn't really recommended that you try it]], unless the steak is frozen and sealed inside plastic wrap. Cow blood seeping into one of the most absorbent parts of your body (the eye) usually isn't good for you. [[StatingTheSimpleSolution You're probably better off with an ice pack]] [[note]]Oh, and wrap that ice pack in a towel or some other kind of cloth. Those things are cold enough to do some pretty bad things to your skin if you keep 'em on long enough, kids.[[/note]]. The reason behind using a steak was the fact that steak in general is kind of flexible and would form to the contour of your eye socket. Bags of frozen vegetables are sometimes used for the same purpose. Nowadays, most people simply recommend a washcloth soaked in cold water. Meat bandages are also an effective way to deal with [[BodyHorror botfly maggots]], as the maggots are likely to leave the infested person's flesh and burrow into the meat, which can then be discarded.

Not to be confused with HyperactiveMetabolism, though "Turkey Bandage" was proposed as a name for that.
