IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHO THE MEAL IS, IT’S PROBABLY YOU

Today’s Hartford Herald reports on Guy DeVillepion, a newspaper correspondent during the Russian-Japanese War, who was “fattened for a feast by cannibals while attempting to cross from Ciudad to Buenos Ayres,” but managed to escape:

“They were a strange people,” he said, “and appeared to be half man and half ape.  I have no doubt that they meant to eat me.  I was mystified by all their kindness until I saw that it was all directed to the end of getting me fat.  Then I thought I had better leave, and I did.”

Hopefully Mr. DeVillepion or someone else will one day write a book (or two) about cannibalism (or, more politely, “person consumption”).  Surely as our society evolves, this barbaric practice will soon become extinct.
