The Japanese Taste Better Than White People

Stands to reason; a diet of fresh fish and rice is much healthier than one of greasy cheeseburgers and french fries:

The jungles of Papua New Guinea are a different world - the land of headhunters and cannibals.

Brave Italian photographer Iago Corazza travelled the country, the island at the end of the world, and took photos of its fascinating inhabitants, who still live a Stone Age existence.

“You find people here who can describe the taste of human flesh,” the photographer said of his travels.

Anthropologist Olga Ammann describes it more succinctly in the book. She quotes people who have eaten other humans: “The meat of white people smells too strongly and is too salty.”

The Japanese are meant to taste the best, according to her study - the only thing that beats it is the meat of their own women.
Now I have gone on record in the past as saying that I would try human if I was in the right part of the world at the right time and the opportunity presented itself; hopefully it would also be voluntary and not some "soccer team in the Andes" type of situation. And yes, I know how taboo this subject is amongst most people but taboo subjects are often my favorites; besides, this special time of the year reminds us that people have been engaging in this behavior throughout Western society for quite some time now:

Those bloody savages and their primitive ways!

Your commentary about cannibals reminds us of God's infinite love and mercy. Just when a group of cannibals is on the verge of starvation and having to eat each other, God sends a nice plump missionary.
God loves you Brain Rager. Happy New Year.

Actually, that does sound primitive, but what can you do?

Thanks Truth101, I felt the love but I just couldn't tell who it was coming from; happy new year right back at you.

And Don, as an anthropologist I try not to use the word "primitive" to desribe societies less technologically advanced than our own but as you say, what can you do?
