Friday Fun Link – World's Oldest Blogger? (Nov 24, 2006)

Is 92-year-old Donald Crowdis (former host of the Candadian TV program The Nature of Things) the world’s oldest blogger? Even if he isn’t his blog is terrific. He’s funny and astute. Here’s an excerpt from a recent entry he wrote on cannibalism:

[T]he best food, or at least the best protein, is that which is most
like our own. Of course, eating others of our kind gives rise to social
problems, and is rare as a result, but it happens. In times past, among
some of the Pacific Islands peoples, since a butchered human very much
resembled a butchered pig, it was referred to as “long pig”. I presume
these cannibals ate only their enemies, not their family members, no
matter how tasty they may have looked. Most of us have accepted that
humans are precious in the sight of God, while ordinary pig, or “short
pig”, is OK nutrition.
