And if you thought that was in bad taste, wait till you read the article.

Ouch. Shouldn't be joking.

(But, having said that, who'd have thought that British colonial influence would actually improve a nation's cuisine?)

The outcry is new, the diners are societally grouped a bit differently than in the past, but the problem is ancient. The hapless pygmy have been regarded as prey animals and beasts of burden by their larger neighbors for as long as archaeologic records indicate interaction between the subspecies. This has much to do with the pygmy's traditionally reclusive, xenophobic nature, I'm sure.

Not guilty on that one. Although Stanley wanted to get the British government to take the Congo as a colony, we were not interested, so our dear European neighbours the Belgians (King Leopold) took their chance.

And the Belgians put mayonaise on their chips! How gross is that?

Thanks walter

"And that was how he (Leopold) viewed the raw materials and the people of the Congo - as a prize to be consumed. But even by the standards of the day, Leopold's attitude to his colony was ruthless and exploitative".

So it was the Belgians who started eating people. mit mayo?

Might well be - better at least, then wrapping them in a newspaper, adding some salt and vinegar!

Nothing better!

Especially on a cold night under a lamp post daring to offer a chip to the girl you never had courage to approach!

I do not find my post unclear Steve.

If it is unclear to others, then here is clarity.

I have a very black sense of humour.

But I do not find the story being discussed here remotely funny.

sometimes the only way to respond to overwhelming horror is humour. it allows us to maintain a sense of humanity when all our senses are agog.
