If you've been reading the papers today, you probably have come across this story somewhere, or perhaps this one. Let's take a brief look at this timely and tasty topic...
The BBC did this brief feature , when cannibalism recently took center stage when a German cannibal and his willing victim made quite a splash. Seems there's a gay internet cannibal clique..
Cannibalism has a long and distinguished history; recent finds indicate that ancient Celts probably prcticed it, while the depredations on Easter Island are well known..
It is gaining in popularity in the former Soviet Republics..
'Learning to Love Cannibals' is a lighthearted look at the cannibal tradition, whereas Richard Routley's 'In Defense of Cannibalism' is a serious and philosophical argument. 'The Case for Cannibalism' also takes the philosophic approach..
My own favorite cannibal, however..
is Alfred Packer. I've eaten in one of the many cafeterias named after him, at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?
