No One Asked Her Why
Listprice Cleanplate spent her nights and weekends working on her book, a magnum opus tentatively titled Waste Not: A Defense of Cannibalism. The book included many recipes. Listprice was an acknowledged expert on humans eating humans. Movie producers consulted her about the specifics of eating human flesh whenever their films had such scenes. Listprice was happy to talk to them. She also gave talks on the subject to any group that asked her. For free. Birds eat birds, said Listprice, and fish eat fish. I see nothing wrong with humans eating humans. Listprice lived alone. She liked it that way.
