* PlayedForLaughs in a few Music/TomLehrer songs:
** In "The Irish Ballad," the protagonist "cut her baby brother in two / And served him up as an Irish stew / And invited the neighbors in."
** In "My Home Town," the local druggist "killed his mother-in-law and ground her up real well, / And sprinkled just a bit / Over each banana split."

No, [[WellThisIsNotThatTrope this trope]] [[IThoughtItMeant is not about]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanitarianism humanitarianism]]. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Cannibalism is considered one of the greatest taboos, so, naturally, it's become a trope. One idea which stands out is that human flesh is superficially similar to swine flesh, hence the nickname "long pig" and the phrase "eating the long pork".[[note]]It's also sometimes called "the other white meat," but it is in fact red, as all mammalian meat is.[[/note]] [[http://blog.wired.com/tableofmalcontents/2006/11/robot_identifie.html A robot designed to taste wine corroborates this idea]]. Thus, it should be delicious, which is reflected both in [[Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter's]] [[WickedCultured gourmet taste]] and in the idea in ''SweeneyTodd'' that pies with this ingredient would sell like hot cakes. Or hot pies.
