The thought of fact checking satire is in and of itself funny. Maybe Snopes should fact check Gullivers Travels while they are at it.

According to Swift: "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 Boyled, and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a Fricasie, or Ragoust."

False

At Snopes, we have eaten many children cooked in many ways and have found out that a Fricasie is certainly not the equal to Roasting or Baking.

They should fact check Candide for whether this really the best of all possible worlds too.
