Orlando Sentinel ^ | June 7, 2012 | Mike Clary

Posted on 06/07/2012 10:02:20 AM PDT by Sam's Army

MIAMI— — A 27-year-old Miramar woman who described herself as the girlfriend of the man killed by police as he gnawed off the face of a homeless man stepped forward Wednesday to speak out against what her counselor called a growing scourge: cannibalism. Yovonka Bryant's counselor? Los Angeles celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred.

"Yovonka and I are very concerned about the issue of cannibalism and the number of cases that are being reported …," said Allred, reading from a statement at a bizarre news conference at the Sofitel Miami.

"We are hopeful that ... Yovonka can help the public understand the dire consequences of cannibalism for its victims."

Thanks, Gloria. We are indeed woefully ignorant when it comes to understanding that cannibalism might be a bad thing.

"It is very important that the social taboo and stigma that have long been attached to this subject continues and that society condemns cannibalism, rather that trivializing it or glamorizing it."

Wow lady, that's a controversial view. I'm just not sure which side of this complex and difficult subject I'm on.

I had to check this twice to make sure it was not satire.

Even after all these years, I still have to ask myself why the “long suffering fiance’ of eighteen years” has to come out with statements that run totally counter to the evidence presented?

He was trying to get his life together....
He was given that drug against his will...
Yeah, he smoked weed, but that ain’t no drug...

Utter denial.

cannibalism is a serious issue and is very dangerous to the health and well-being of both the cannibal and the victim

Really?! *best Johnny Carson voice* I did not know that!

they read the Bible and the Quran together

There's something off here. I'm not sure I believe the Bible claim, if they were reading the Koran.

LOL, I had to check it wasn’t satire too.

Apparently the Orlando Sentinel regards itself as a sacred repository of nearly-forgotten truths.

Think about this: 6 months ago this exact same story could have been written with these EXACT same words....and it would have been considered some hilarious and biting satire about Alred

(hee hee, get it?biting-that was unintentional)

Alfred Packer (1842-1907). In 1873, he guided a party of 20 men into the San Juan Mountains, continued in heavy snows against advice, and returned alone, saying his companions had abandoned him. Months afterward, search parties discovered the bodies of the missing men, most stripped of flesh. Packer was tried, found guilty of murder, and sentenced to 40 years of hard labor. Before he left the courtroom, he was assured of a place in posterity when the judge told him sternly, “Packer, you depraved Republican son of a bitch, there were only five Democrats in Hinsdale County, and you ate them all!” Photobucket

to speak out against what her counselor called a growing scourge: cannibalism.

Does this mean Allred is going to become the "Anita Bryant" of cannibalism? Who is she to foist her morals on the rest of society? Does she know the suicide rate among cannibals? Does she realize that judgmentalism like hers is causing young cannibals to be bullied in school? And by the way they prefer to be known by the less clinical term of "hungry." People have no idea the challenges face by the "hungry" community. It's time for county health clinics to distribute free, sterile carving knives to stop the spread of disease...

Cannibals also should have the right to marry and run Boy Scout troops.

As I read this article, I was impressed with the satirical humor and the absurdity. A media whore like Alred, and the ever-present “he was a good person” comments from friends made for totally believable satire.

Then I realized ... this was an actual article, in a real
“newspaper”, with “real” people, saying “real” words ... that actually happened.

Just when you think something can’t get any weirder ...
