Who would taste better? (need answer fast)

Humans, that is.

Lean athlete, big fat guy, average person, kids …?

Probably an obese child. It would be like veal.

Fat vegetarian kid, or a milk fed baby.

"Hi, I’m crazy Eddie. I put babies on spikes. Do you want a rack of babies? We’ve got babies on racks.


They taste of chicken."

Acorn-fed kid is my vote.

Man, you’re making me hungry.

Based on the non-human meat people like to eat, I’d have to say kids. Babies or chubby kids especially. Toddlers and pre-teens are often pretty lean - you’d have to like meat on the bone.

One time this topic came up years ago when my 7-or-so year-old daughter was going through a pescetarian phase (which I am too, but she’s mostly a meat-eater) and I had a horrible dream about being trapped on a mountain with a bunch of people determined to eat my kid. :smiley:

Trying to decide what to have for dinner? :confused: May I inquire as to why you need a fast answer?

A lean athlete would be all rangy and bony. Probably taste kinda gamey. Now, chubby 2-year-old foie gras? *That’s *delicious.

I thought threads encouraging illegal activity were prohibited.

Going by pig as an equivalent to human [there is a reason we are called long pig …] children prepuberty, preferably a bit on the lazy plump side. I would also surmise eunich male, and handicapped adult that is elderly as stewing long pig.

A good amount of fat and not a lot of exercise, and preferably little in the way of adult sex hormone action.

A precocious pre-teen cooked in its own juices.

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.


Baby everything tastes better! Baby salad greens, baby corn in Asian takeout, baby animals of every kind…
Looks like I’m in good company - poll shows almost 50% “Kids” as of this posting.
The SDMB doesn’t have an age limit to join, right? Wouldn’t want to scare away [del]dinner[/del] the younger set from participating…

Actually, most of the animals we eat are killed very young - a few months. I’m glad people here seem to know this.


I needed a belly laugh. Thanks.:smiley:

Well what a depraved bunch we dopers are, Jonathan Swift anyone?

That is all



Thanks, everyone.

I don’t think eating human flesh is specifically illegal. Killing someone in order to eat them is, as would chopping off a piece of somebody. I’ve never heard of anyone who resorted to cannibalism in order to survive being charged with a crime, assuming they had no role in the death of their… meal.

Nope, we now know who is going to be the tastiest to eat. Or at least Procrustus seems to think it’s them.

No where’s the knife and fork smiley.
