Day 679

Blake4d's offering for Day 679 on his The 800 Days blog reminds me very much of the work of satire by Jonathan Swift called, "A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland From Being a Burden on Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Publick" more commonly known as "A Modest Proposal." Certainly a certain part of the topic (taboo in our society) is brought to the reader - that of cannibalism...

EXPECT to feel some discomfort and dissonance when you read the morsel Blake has prepared... and if, as you ingest the material, "How To Serve Man or Cooking for Cannibals and Dummies," you feel you'd like to become a vegetarian, nobody at all will blame you.


The Day 679 offering on The 800 Days blog is SATIRE (and social commentary) and is associated with Thursday February 10 2011.


  1. Hey hey MB its wonderful to see you have been around for an update. I know that I have been gone from the universe - but wanted to let you know that the blog (although over a month behind has had some technical issues. And will be up to date again very soon) Love you and thanks for supporting the mission. Blake4d

  2. I have been AWOL myself a lot, Blake... had some changes over the past couple of months but ready to get back to regular blogging.
