Long Pork, part II

I've used the term long pork before without elaborating on its meaning. But since my discovery that the photo in that post now rank no. 1 in google image searches on the term I feel obliged to do just that.

Long pork is a term used by south east pacific islanders as an euphemism for human flesh. Isn't that wonderful. Most sources claim it refers to the taste being pig-like. But according to amarican occult journalist William Buehler Seabrook human flesh is more "like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef. It was very definitely like that, and it was not like any other meat I had ever tasted. It was so nearly like good, fully developed veal that I think no person with a palate of ordinary, normal sensitiveness could distinguish it from veal."

Pictured above is the pioneer plaque send with pioneer 10 and 11 into deep space. It is devised to describe to extra terrastials what humans look like and where to get them. Just like the menus the myriad of local pizza joints keep leaving in my mailbox. If aliens do ever arrive here to have a taste of the exotic delicacy we might be to them this recipy for whole roast human seem to me like a good, if time consuming, choice. Otherwise I've heard that the upper arm of a young woman is supposed to be the most tasty and tender cut. Bon appetit.

For a thorough read on cannibalism i suggest you turn to wikipedias article on the subject. Or return here - quite a few interesting links came up during research which I'll be posting in the future.

doesn't it seem like we could have left something behind that was a little more descriptive? i know aliens probably don't speak english, but come on!

hehe - I think you'd hurt the feelings of the designers who spend quite some effort figuring out how to communicate with possibly unimaginble lifeforms...

But you might wanna check out another attempt too - the voayager golden record

I allways liked to imagine that aliens were so alien, that they could easily identify with the left part of the plaque as a fellow living being, but just couldn't figure out what to make of the weird drawings on the right.

Or at least that they found the mans hand gesture very obscene and rude(or laughed at his small penis, do you think they made it that size to avoid creating inferiority complexes in what might turn out to be heavily armed aliens?).

Being a sometimes moral cannibal I turn to Hufu for all my long pig needs ;)
