If you were to eat yourself around the world, you would learn to relish a variety of insects, and insect larvae even, but only if you left hot dogs at home in America. Talk about food that is "ew", hot dogs are at the top of the list. Food preference is an emotional choice, as much as it is nutritional. Hunger narrows the gap between the two.

Are we ruling out cannabalism? Seems like a good source of protein, I am tough and stringy, but maybe some of the plus size folks could make a really juicy steak or two.
