It does not taste like chicken. Also don't try it, because it's probably illegal. FULL STORY (Warning: Gross Video)

The lab tech suggested a lamb and pork combination. This was from chemical analysis of the guy's flesh sample, not personal experience.

It may take a while to find the right restaurant, if you're really interested in the genuine article



Of course, cultural taboos against eating people are less frowned upon in survival situations



Then there's always the chance of an undertaker suggesting something completely different

Eewww!

I had a crazy co-worker that said he tried it after a chainsaw injury. He was probably sauced on beer at the time. He said it tasted like chicken.

And yes, Charlie was crazy enough to try. Too bad he wasn't arrested.....

How Many Calories Is That Human? A Nutritional Guide For Prehistoric Cannibals

Post by Riddick » 04-08-2017 10:35 PM

If you were to eat, say, another human being, how many calories would you be taking in? That’s a valid question not only for health-conscious people, but for anthropologists, too. You see, our human ancestors were cannibals — but we don’t really know why. Did they kill and eat each other like they would a mammoth or a wholly rhino — for the meat? Or were they practicing some sort of religious ritual?

To answer that question, James Cole, a senior lecturer in archaeology at the University of Brighton, looked into the nutritional value of a human being and then compared it to that of other animals our ancestors dined on. He found that eating a man provides fewer calories than gobbling down a mammoth, bison, or red deer. And that suggests that our ancestors ate each other not for nutrition but for some other purpose — maybe as a form of funerary or cultural ritual. FULL STORY
