Morbid story about a restaurant in Nigeria selling cheap meat dishes...cause they're made out of humans.

Quote:
A restaurant in the Nigerian state of Anambra has been shut down after the authorities reportedly found it has been selling dishes made of human meat.

The police recovered at least two fresh human heads when they arrested 11 people from the restaurant including the owner, six women and four men, following a tip-off.

The blood-soaked heads were found wrapped in cellophane sheets.

Officials have also seized two AK-47 rifles, other weapons, dozens of rounds of ammunitions and several mobile phones during the raid.

"Each time I came to market, because the hotel is very close to the market, I always noticed funny movements in and out of the hotel; dirty people with dirty characters always come into the hotel. So, I was not surprised when the police made this discovery in the early hours of yesterday," a local resident told the Osun Defender.

A pastor, who was shocked to know that what he had eaten was human meat, complained to the police.

"I went to the hotel early this year, after eating, I was told that a lump of meat was being sold at N700 (£2.5), I was surprised. So I did not know it was human meat that I ate at such expensive price," the unidentified pastor said.

Reports of cannibalism sometimes emerge in Nigeria, but this is the first time a restaurant has been booked for selling human meat dishes.

Sauce.

I mean, I like Sweeney Todd but...

I know! I've been paying way too much for my human meat.

It depends on the human. Try with someone with a degree in liberal-arts, should be cheap!

Not that I'd ever patronize a place that slaughters people, but I'm genuinely curious what human meat tastes like

I think it's said to be similar to pig.

Where is Ina when you need him? He knows this stuff.

Human skin and porcine skin are very similar. Our musculature isn't all that different. We use pig valves to replace human heart valves. Not sure any of that translates to humans tasting like pork, though.

Considering the lives most humans lead, though, I wouldn't expect human flesh to be worth eating except in desperation. The rotund porcine fatties who are slowly merging with their couches might be tasty enough, but starving Nigerians (because I assume the victims weren't well-to-do based on their being killed and eaten like this) will almost certainly be gamy and tough. Compare venison to ranched cattle: deer live active lives scrounging for food, domestic cattle are discouraged from excessive movement and are fed specifically to flavor their flesh.

As for the article itself, I love the "I totally knew something wrong was going on there" vox populi comment. People really enjoy making ***up after the fact. I cannot fathom why they did this. Then again, there have been restaurants in the US that make a big deal out of cooking the flesh of endangered or rare animals, so maybe it is born of the same idiotic impulse.

Well, you could always take a knife to yourself and find out.

Carnivores and Omnivores in general do not taste good. (or smell good)
So we only eat vegans as a rule... But it's hell getting that patchouli smell off of them which is why we switched to poor people...
