With the New Year officially here, many of us are combating chilly weather, love handles and crowded gym parking lots. For those of us in colder climates though, snow is piling up and we stand a good chance of being snowed in with our friends and family.
Nine times out of ten, you can expect to be trapped indoors for less than a week, but for longer durations, things can start to get a little desperate. When the pantry is rendered bare and Uncle Phil’s scouting party is presumed claimed by the blizzard outside, I want you to think about this list. The decision to eat the other, other white meat might save your life… the same can’t be said for everybody else’s though.
So read ahead to get a leg up on the competition.
#1. You can now invite people over for dinner AND a first-hand lesson in the meaning of situational irony.
#2. That guy at work that you hate.
#3. Those damned kids will stay off your lawn… for good.
#4. You might actually turn into a Wendigo and gain super-powers.
Some Native American folklore suggests that the act of eating human flesh would turn a person into a ravenous, immortal beast possessed of supernatural strength, speed and resilience. The only downside is the persistent and unnatural hunger for human flesh, oh and something about losing all of your humanity or some other nonsense.
Anyway, I’ve put it into a pro/ con chart for you…
…so being a Wendigo is pretty awesome if you don’t mind having an ever-lasting case of the munchies and possibly ditching that pesky soul thing. I mean, really, what has your soul done for you lately?
I hope these four reasons make the decision to eat your friends and loved ones a little easier when the time comes. Bon appetit!
P.S. The underwhelmer does not endorse eating people. Well, unless they’re bad people; then it’s just a neutral act… I guess.
P.P.S I almost forgot! Here’s a little known fact: Were-beavers and Wendigos are BFFs.
