New York Times Piece Suggests There’s a ‘Time and Place’ For Cannibalism

New York Times piece suggesting there’s a ‘time and place’ for ‘cannibalism’


Twitter users expressed discomfort and confusion on Twitter Saturday after The New York Times published an article claiming there’s a “time and a place” for “cannibalism.”

Users blasted the piece for seemingly “normalizing” the grisly practice of eating human flesh.

The New York Times published the outlandish piece, titled “A Taste for Cannibalism?” in its Style section on Saturday. Written by Alex Beggs, the article provided insight into cannibalism’s growing relevance in pop culture ­– especially in a “spate of recent stomach-churning books” – and touted one author’s assertion that cannibalism’s “time is now.”

The piece provided a showcase for a set of interesting quotes from the creators of Yellowjackets, a Showtime series featuring graphic scenes of cannibalism. Co-creator Ashley Lyle explained her inspiration for the show, saying, “I think we’re often drawn to the things that repulse us the most.”

Her creative partner Bart Nickerson added, “But I keep coming back to this idea of, what portion of our revulsion to these things is a fear of the ecstasy of them?”

Beggs’ piece also sought to find out “what may be fueling the desire for cannibalism stories today.” According to Lyle, it’s the current “strange moment.” She mentioned “the pandemic, climate change, school shootings and years of political cacophony as possible factors.”

  1. Is it their working theory if we won’t eat the bugs we might like the taste of people better?

    Soylent Green, eh?!?

  2. I will not be eating bugs or people. Even if they confiscated or killed all of our livestock, there are plenty of deer, squirrels, doves, turkeys, ducks, etc. to live off of.

  3. Did you hear about the cannibal?

    Passed his mother in the woods.

    One of my best jokes … in junior high.
    Yeah. I’m posting this one as anonymous.

  4. So just how soon will the NY Slimes or the LA papers run an article about how cannibalism benefitted the Donner Party and saved the environment when they were trapped in the High Sierras in the 1840’s during one hell of a snowstorm? Two cannibals are having dinner sitting around a campfire and one cannibal says to the other I hate my mother in-law, the other cannibal says just shut up and quit your bitching and just eat the noodles. Cannibal jokes are my favorites, maybe it’s because I have a morbid sense of humor. And to quote Monty Python, “Bring out your dead.”

  6. The nihilistic totalitarians are pushing every perversion and depravity imaginable in their concerted efforts to undermine civilization.

    Another Satanic practice.

    Aside from the Anthropophagi of “The Histories” fame, cannibalism is considered repugnant and antithetical to society. It is difficult to build any type of trust with those for whom you are dinner – thus any co-operation is impossible.

  7. Just remember that cannibals can’t eat after dark.

    Here’s why.

    …one day, two cannibal tribes that ate the dead of the loser ceremonially, as a form of victory celebration, fought longer than usual, and the sun was fading rapidly when one tribe broke and ran, leaving their dead behind. The cooks parted and roasted the fallen warriors, bringing the choicest cut of the fattest man, a forearm complete with wrist and hand wrapped in banana leaves and done to a turn, with great jubilation to their chief so he could take the first bite and start the feast. By then, the cooking fire had died down, casting only a dull reddish glow over the hungry warriors and their umber meats.

    Famished by the fighting and the long delay, the chief snatched the arm and bit into it hungrily, biting down on sinew and tearing into tendons.

    …this caused the hand, which was unfortunately carelessly placed, to close over the chief’s face with a SNAP, with two of the toasted fingers burrowing into his eye sockets, forever blinding him.

    And that’s why cannibals won’t eat after dark.

    Because they can’t see the hand in front of their face.

  8. …one day a British explorer stumbled into a clearing and found himself in a clearing full of beautiful, bare breasted women, whom he unthinkingly ogled in his surprise when the angry warriors protecting him grabbed him, tied him to a pole, and carried him off. The man was taken immediately before the Chief, who pronounced summary sentence.

    “You have looked upon our sacred maidens with lust in your eyes, which is not permitted, but because you came upon them by accident we will let the gods decide your fate by playing Maiden Roulette. ”

    With that he claps his hands and six of the most desirable women he’s ever seen, perfect in form and rapturous of face come to the fire and kneel all around him in a circle, looking up at him with lovely eyes and moisened lips parted in expectation.

    The explorer is visibly aroused by this sight but fearful for the situation, when a huge warrior comes to him with a drawn knife, looks at him with disgust as he lowers it to his engorged member, then simply cuts his belt so his pants fall off, leaving his erect shame fully exposed, then the warrior backs off. Confused, the explorer looks to the Chief, who instructs him in the way of the trial.

    “The trial is simple. You will look upon these beauties one by one, and when you have chosen the one you find most beautiful you will insert yourself in her mouth. If you have chosen wisely, she will pleasure you immediately, and become your wife forever, and you will live among us with her in peace for the rest of your days.”

    The explorer goggles at this, then says, “What do you mean, IF I have chosen wisely? What is the “Roulette” part?”

    The cheif smiles at him through sharpened teeth and says, “One of them is a cannibal”.

  9. You know that thing we have inside our head that tells us, “Don’t say that out loud”? Yeah, the NYT doesn’t have that…

  10. Pro tip; smoke heavily and publicly in cannibal lands.

    The natives say it spoils the taste of the meat.

  11. Now there’s a solid argument for anti-abortion if I’ve ever heard one.

    “All You Can Eat – coming to your local orphanage and homeless shelter.”

    “Clean Up Your Streets – Cook the Homeless.”

  12. …then there’s eating the rich…

    “When the people shall have nothing more to eat, they will eat the rich”.
    Jean-Jacques Rousseau

    …the livers do tend to be fatty and cirrhotic tho, and you may want to avoid Nancu Pelosi’s altogether, just sayin’…

  13. Dibs on all the fat democrat’s! Think how tasty all that putrid fat will taste roasted to perfection over the campfire coals in our government approved cave!

  14. There’s a guy on YT I watch that has a slew of videos navigating the waterways in the UK with his narrowboat.
    His reply when asked if he likes children is; “I like children but I don’t think I could eat a whole one.”

  15. Michael Moore and Rosie O’Doughnuts should avoid inner cities.

    Oh yeah, how bout those cows on “The View?”

    …most Democrats would taste fantastically bitter because that’s how they are, the meat would smell like vomit because their veins are filled with bile, would be stringy and tough because they are so old, and the fat would be a repository of all the drugs they are on from behavioral to illicit to Adrenochrome, not to mention they would be infused with penecillin resistant social diseases, AIDS, ARC, Monkeypox, and MRSA because they are filthy perverts who glory in disease.

    And the REAL honchos would have lethal levels of alcohol permeating their flesh.

    You can have mine, thanks anyway. Eating any part of a Democrat would be more deadly than the Fakevaxx.

    Although ironically that’s the one thing you WON’T find in them, because they lied about THAT, too…

  17. SNS,
    I have to agree. It was an observation – not a suggestion.

    mortem tyrannis

  18. I feel pressure building from the abortion crowd. If they can’t kill babies, they’ll kill you.

  19. Soylent Brown is sh1t, which, “The New York Times,” can feel free to consume to its heart’s content.

  20. I guarantee you that the writer of the piece, Alex Beggs, is a flaming faggot degenerate paedo… without a doubt. This was totally satanic.
