@Seastone: The disease you`re referring to is Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease and it`s similar to mad cow.

Damn prions.

It`s seems true that human flesh would taste similar to pork, as the texture, tensile and density are very close. That`s why pigs are used to test bullet penetration. (dead ones, obviously)

These were probably the same questions Michael Rockefeller asked just before he was eaten by cannibals in 1961. It probably isn`t a good idea to raise the curiosity of how a white man would taste when talking to cannibals. In fact, it is probably not a good idea to talk to them at all.

Tiredofnicks: Yes, Pigs do can carry parasites, plus there was no refrigeration or sterilized hygienic processing plants and meat was often undercooked. The prohibition against pork may have been a safety issue as well as a anti-cannibal issue.

I miss lovo (the pit-roasted food). Fijians used used to call roasted human "Long-pig".

Funny story: If you ever want to insult a Fijian, tell them that they were stupid enough to eat a missionary`s boots. (The church group that the guy came from returned in the late 19th century to find him missing, and apparently accused the Fijians of eating his boots as well. The Fijians proudly brought out the boots, which I believe are still on display in a museum in Suva.)

What I`ve read before indicated they tend to only eat people who have already died in a way that is supposed to be spiritual in many tribes. The article was about how a disease (I forget which) was appearing only among women and children cannibals. Apparently whatever disease it was could only be transferred by eating the less choice pieces of human near the spine and brain, I think. Men ate first and got the meatier bits, but women and children ate the wrong part and got the disease. I don`t know whether it was ever as common as white people seem to think for them to actually find sustenance from man or whether it was, as I think, usually more about absorbing the person`s spirit or something.

If I were one of those elders, I would totally screw with the interviewer.
"Have you ever eaten a white man?"

So, do they just draw straws for who gets eaten? Or do they kidnap someone from a neighboring tribe? I`d love to know more about the selection process.

Yes, Human meat tastes like pork, according to many sources. This is led to a theory that answers the question, "Why do some religions prohibit the eating of pork?". If human meat and pork taste so alike, that similarity and the moral condemning of cannibalism led to the prohibition of pork on moral grounds.

"have you eaten a white man?"
"There weren`t any around."

That was the last footage taken of the late Dr. Livingston...

And everyone knows we taste like pork. That`s why it`s called `sweet pork`. Only we`re greasier aparently.

What? .... I read a lot, okay!

I`d be curious about that last question too, different texture/taste. though it doesn`t have anything to do with race but rather where the person was raised/lived.
