I have no idea why I was thinking this but...
If cannabilism was acceptable/practiced in today's society, I'd be tempted to set up a restaurant with a dish called Charlton Heston: Cold, dead hands. Probably pickled. The only problem is, there probably isn't much good meat on hands, so it'd probably not be a dish that'd appeal to the tastes of the masses.
Of course, I also wonder how cannibalism in mainstream society a few hundred years ago might have affected medical science... Cut open person "As you can see... These bean shaped things are what we call Tasty Bits. If a person has an infection, don't eat these. Also, this is the Big Tasty Bit *pointing to liver*... don't eat it if it's yellow. Some people may try to tell you that it just means that he was corn-fed. Don't believe a word... it's most likely alcoholic poisoning. Tasty though. But don't eat too much. Again, if he was sick or poisoned, don't eat the Big Tasty Bits."
I mean, what would happen to your tonsils or appendix after a removal? Would they be in your next hospital dinner? Would it be mandatory? A right of passage, where you self-cannibalise?
Should I shut up now? Probably.
