    I’ve heard human flesh tasted more like pork than beef but whatever… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • November 8, 2015 at 11:22 pm

      That’s why they call it “long pork”. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • November 9, 2015 at 6:18 pm

        Not long pork. Long pig. Been that way before Captain cook.

      What’s more, H. sapiens neither splits the hoof nor chews the cud.

      And have you seen how greasy are the results when you dress ’em out?

        Actually, yes I have.. :o)

    Zed’s lucky he’s in Texas. Here in OH, most docs would already have him tranked and strapped down in the proverbial padded room.

    DO’s still seem to have a sense of humor, though.

      Don’t know Texas law, but in Oregon where I worked Psych at a VA hospital, it was illegal to physically restrain a conscious patient unless they were violent and a danger to themselves or others. You either had someone sit one-on-one with them or placed alarms on the bed to alert staff if they tried to get out of bed.

    Compared to some of the things TX doctors hear, its a modest enough proposal.

      And Owen’s is Irish, so the kids really fit the bill. Swift move.

    She knew it was a wind up before the first sentence was finished. Well done, Chris.

    Swift…..move. Love it. I would proposition you, but that wouldn’t be modest

    When asked if I like children, I usually reply:
    “Yes. Especially rolled in a light pastry crust, then baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.”

    • November 9, 2015 at 7:23 am

      Ever read the children’s story “Rolly Poly Kitten”?

    • November 9, 2015 at 1:26 pm

      My normal response is medium rare with garlic butter.

  • November 9, 2015 at 6:52 am

    Or as W.C. Fields once answered: “Do I like children, yes I do, boiled, broiled or in a stew.” ๐Ÿ™‚

    • November 9, 2015 at 8:38 am

      ‘I like children. If they’re properly cooked.’ was by W.C.
      The earliest I can remember, โ€œDo I like children? Yes I do! Boiled, baked, or in a stew!” was in a Shel Silverstein cartoon from Playboy, sometime in the mid 60’s.

    There is a specialty license plate in VA with the legend “Kids First” at the bottom. Some guy managed to personalize it with “EAT THE”. The state finally caught on and made him give the plate back, damnit.

    And… Chris, did you miss coloring Sam’s left breast? Or was the nipple a Freudian slip?

    Mountain man Hugh Glass reported that he unknowingly ate one bite of human stew, and referred to himself afterwards as a ‘one bite cannibal’.
    Asked around a campfire what it was like he replied “Shee-it, meat’s meat.”

    I have followed this web cartoon from Day ONE.

    In MHO, the third frame of this one, specific panel personified the comic, cultural and telling genius of its creator, (and goddamned you, sir, if you interject!), Chris Muir.

    I’m a foodie, and I know something about brisket. I have visited the great state of Texas on two occasions. I have known a plural number of Texans. I was rarely disappointed in their population.

        Then just get yourself over here and referee the “auction” of those of us Texans who want to buy you the first drink and a real Texas brisket plate.

        Plus we can do a little real estate recon for the real Double D.
