You might want to rethink that trip to New Guinea
Remember the Beef Industry Councils advertising campaign several years ago featuring the Sam Elliott voice-over? Beef, its whats Dinner. Loved that. Usually made the Rat hungry too.
If youre planning your own little National Geographic type safari to the jungles of Papau New Guinea anytime soon, you just might want to give some serious thought to booking a different trip. Perhaps a ride or two on Disney Worlds Jungle Cruise would be a bit more appetizing or should we say less appetizing?
Okay, this is no laughing matter for members of one particular tribe in New Guinea. Especially those who have been eaten by other members. The whats for dinner? question takes on a whole new meaning with these people.
Yep, theres a tribe in Papua who meats out justice by eating members who end up on the wrong side of the local witch doctor. (yeah, the Rat knows its metes but he couldnt resist.) Following a ritualistic sing-sing ceremony, the name of the offending party mysteriously ends up in the ear of the magic man. Needless to say, this is a rather unfortunate turn of events for the soon-to-be main course.
These folks proceed to kill and eat those potentially tasty, yet unfortunate souls whom they believe have caused illness which brings harm to their village. The tribe is perfectly fine with their dinner selection (buffet style) since they no longer view suspected culprits as human; they have become witches; witches who must be snacked on to be destroyed.
So how often does this happen you ask? Apparently not frequently enough for human entrées to show up as daily specials at any of the jungles popular dining establishments. Once every six months or so appears to be the norm, although the Rats sure more than a few members of the tribe would say thats often enough, thank you very much.
Okay, lets get down to the morbid nitty gritty: What exactly do people taste like? Rather delicious, says one tribe member. Rat was hoping chicken would be the answer. A bit of research on the subject not only proved to be inconclusive; the Rats now afraid the police are gonna show up at the door asking: Why did you Google what does human meat taste like? While nobody seems to know for sure, rumor has it that human pot roast tastes similar to veal, or a sweet variation of beef. (Rat would rather not know that.)
At any rate, human meat is an excellent source of protein and it does cure witches. You cant say that about your moms pot roast now, can you?
Call the Rat crazy, but hell betcha eat me is not a very popular saying in the jungles of Papau New Guinea.
multiculturalism gone wild we could introduce them to the witches of ISLAM,
