"If all cultures are equal,..."

"...why doesn’t UNESCO organize International Cannibalism Week festivals?"

I would like to point out that there are well documented health concerns for both participants engaging in this culinary event. As an aside or a "food for thought" moment, perhaps cannibals should be call "eaters of the dead" just in case there is sensitivity to that descriptive. lol

Neo - it's probably apocryphal, but I remember reading (many years ago) a story about WW I. Seems a British officer brought a chieftan from an ex-camibal clan to view the battlefield. The exchange went somewhat as follows:

Chieftan: and do you eat them?

Officer: of course not.

Chieftan: then why did you kill them? What a waste.
