"They ate their victims' brains raw": 'Cannibal cult' members arrested after seven 'witch doctors' brutally murdered
The cult members are thought to have eaten the witch doctors organs in the belief that they would attain supernatural powers and become bulletproof
Police in Papua New Guinea have unearthed a cannibal cult in the jungle thought to be responsible for the murders of seven suspected witch doctors.
The 29 cult members allegedly ate their victims' brains raw and made soup from their penises, according to police officials.
Madang Police Commander Anthony Wagambie said: They dont think theyve done anything wrong; they admit what theyve done openly.
Wagambie said the suspected killers believed their victims practiced sanguma, or sorcery, and had allegedly been extorting money and demanding sex from poverty-stricken villagers for supernatural services.
The cult members are thought to have eaten the witch doctors organs in the belief that they would attain supernatural powers and become bulletproof.
Wagambie said he believes there could be between 700 and 1,000 cult members in several villages in Papua New Guineas remote northeast interior.
All of them might have eaten human flesh, he said.
According to a report in The National, which is published in Papua New Guinea, 28 men and women appeared in a Madang court on Tuesday.
Wagambie said they were charged with willful murder.
It was not clear what happened to the 29th suspect. Murder is punishable by death in Papua New Guinea, a poor South Pacific island nation.
Wagambie said the suspects were not required to plea to the murder charges and were being held in custody.
Police will gather more witness statements before pressing charges related to the cannibalism allegations, he said.
Cannibalism was part of traditional culture in Papua New Guinea, where human flesh was known as "long pig," and survived in isolated pockets into the latter part of the 20th century while the country was under Australian colonial rule.
Wagambie, 36, said he had never heard of a previous case of cannibalism in his lifetime.
He expected police would make around 100 arrests over the weekend for cult-related crimes.
Four of the seven victims were murdered last week, Wagambie said, adding that no remains had been recovered.
"They're probably all eaten up," he said.

Waiter: “You want some crackers with that soup?”

What, is the western world suddenly discovering what goes on in places like this?
I guess, because missionaries are so looked down upon by the MSM nowadays, all those jokes about them being cooked and eaten are forgotten.
I learned about this little gem in graduate school, thirty years ago:
Tsk, tsk!! Bad, bad joke. But funny, nonetheless.
Here’s a link that’s clearer:
Hey, I see some real possibilities here.
I think all the members of that Cannibal Cult need to be given free plane tickets to Tanzania. I’m certain the albinos will thank them profusely for continuing with their good work.
Oh ... Frank and beans...
So.... cannibals don’t eat clowns because they taste funny?

Penis soup? Is that anything like cock-a-leekie?

I thought this was another story out of Florida.
Ya, I know, I'm weird. LOL
Just finished a brain development class a month ago. It is amazing how much we don't know about the human brain. That really hit home when our youngest, Kathryn, was in neonatal. Lots of development taking place.
We actually had to teach her the sucking reflex. Amazing.
Hope you're well.
Too dry here. We need rain. The corn is already tasseling out.

Draw straws; short straw gets to watch the others get shot one by one, to test the theory.
Short straw then gets to go home and spread the word that it doesn't work.
Barney Frank usually orders soup at the Chinese restaurant where they serve Cream of Sum Yung Gai.
Science marches on.
Me too. Apparently people are having their brains fried every day down there.
Actually not. It's really pretty typical of the mentality of those tribes.
You ought to get a copy of The Peace Child by Don Richardson, one of the first missionaries in that area.
In it he documents their liestyle before the missionaries arrived by following the lives of some of the members of the various tribes. It's not a long read and is pretty interesting in how he relates in the problems of presenting the gospel to people for whom Judas is the hero for his betrayal of Jesus.
