    I had to read this for my English class last year. I thought the piece was the stupidest thing I had ever read (yes, I do realize it is satire and about the Catholics). That is why I haven't willingly read Swift's writing since...And I'm not bored enough to do it anyways.

    Yeah, maybe we should also mention that the guy is Irish.

    Yep. Echo forgot the best part, though. The guy cut off the guys penis, and both guys, the one that will be eaten and the one that does the eating, ate the grilled pecker together.

    For y'all"

Meiwes then sautéed the penis in a pan with salt, pepper, and garlic.
    P.S. :

    What in the world are you talking about?
    Swift, a Irishman, wrote it as a satire about how the English thought of the Irish as sub-human. Don't know where Catholicism came from, that is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off. Very clever, I thought. I liked it better than Gulliver's Travels(though, I admit, the bellows-in-the-anus part was hilarious, oh, and the master-race horses).

    It wouldn't have really solved Ireland's hunger problems. The material retake of eating a baby isn't close to the amount of resources that are consumed in its conception and growth from foetus to infant.

    Additionally, even if they were to only eat the children of that generation to prevent stunting population growth and eventually offsetting the economy and workforce, it wouldn't be enough food and they would be forced to continue eating babies at an alarming rate - and would end up causing the population to decline to unstable numbers.

    Hmmm... perhaps a better solution would be to have the children feast on their parents. Interesting, interesting...
