A Swedish company called “Oomph!” has developed a novel way to promote the eating of plant-based foods–a “Human Meat Burger” (https://www.adweek.com/creativity/this-brand-made-a-human-meat-burger-for-halloween-but-its-not-as-creepy-as-it-seems/).
They say they did a lot of, um, “research” to create a plant-based pseudo-meat that would taste exactly like human flesh made into hamburger.
What research? I mean, who did they ask, “What does human meat taste like?” Where’s Hannibal Lecter when you need him? Are there cannibals in Sweden, or did they have to go farther afield to find well-informed experts on this subject? And what kind of sales pitch can they use–“Feel like a cannibal”? Meanwhile, they’re calling it “exciting.”
Can we say yet that our civilization is melting down? How is this supposed to appeal to anyone who isn’t nuts?
Yeahbut, yeahbut! A plant-based diet will Save The Planet!
We seem to be running out of sane people we can listen to.
