In the Proceedings of the Royal Institute of Anthropophagy
(last year’s Spring number, page 132),
there is a most unusual instance recorded
of a man and woman who conspired to eat each other –
and would have done so, had not the laws of nature prevented it.
I heartily agree with the writer of the article
who denounces the whole affair as a ‘flagrant travesty’,
a ‘perversion of the established rites’ and a ‘half-baked stunt’.
