    My first “real” cookbook (The Joy of Cooking of course) had diagrams explaining where the various cuts were on several different kinds of animal.

    Compared to most other animals of a similar size, humans just aren’t very meaty…

    It not worth it Calvin, the human body is not very nutritious. A group of 25 hunters could live off a Mammoth for 60 days but the same hunters would eat for less than a day on a human.

    “I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee or a ragout.” – Jonathan Swift (1729)

    She should have sent him to read A Modest Proposal by Swift.

    The author, Paul Theroux once asked a man whose ancestors were cannibals what we tasted like. The answer was, honestly, Spam. This may explain the popularity of the canned stuff in Oceania. Spam, the original taste of home!

    Owing to all the chemicals we eat, humans are unfit for human consumption. I actually read that somewhere.

    I don’t think about the subject as a rule, but I wonder if people taste like chicken? Actually, probably pork.

    When i was a kid, anytime i asked what we were having for dinner my mother always said “roast leg of Rob”. Fortunately she was fibbing or I wouldn’t have a leg to stand on.

    During the Siege of Paris from 1870-1, Parisians took to eating zoo animals and their own pets. I remember reading an extract from a historical diary at high school in which a Frenchman stated he had eaten a dog the previous night and that it didn’t taste bad but it had left him with a strong sense of guilt especially when he looked at a living dog in the street.

    A much later strip had Calvin get in trouble for wanting to discuss cannibalism in class. Aren’t those usually red flags?

    The only sliver of human meat I’ve consumed would be my blood from when I bit my tongue or flossed too hard. It has a somewhat sweet and salty yet metallic flavor that can’t really be compared to anything else.

    “Go be disgusting somewhere else” is a line I wish I’d used on my kids. Still — I could usually out-gross them any day. (Comes of having three brothers.)

    Calvin, the Internet will be available soon. It will answer all your questions! (Perhaps not always correctly, but there will be no shortage of references if you want to compare the answers.)

    I think when I was a kid, some kids were told to be disgusting elsewhere. So they were disgusting at school. My parents didn’t want us to be disgusting ANYWHERE.
